Last Saturday (just like every Saturday when I am in town) started with a visit to the Kitchener Farmers' Market. My mission was to stock our fridge for the week ahead. To tell the truth, I could have done it at my local grocery store as well. However, the market is my preferred place to go as I love to connect with my community and enjoy having conversations with our local farmers and their little helpers. On Saturday, I had a privilege to enjoy a short lecture from one of the vendor's grandsons. When I asked him not to chop off the green stalks of the carrots (because our guinea pig loves them), he explained what the best food is for small pets.
