To Market, To Market, To Buy a Fat Pig Review

Yesterday I had the privilege of watching To Maket, To Market, To Buy a Fat Pig. It was a great documentary about Farmer's Markets across the United State. It is a project from the Corporation of Public Broadcasters with PBS.

It features several great markets, speaks with vendors about their products and their view of the market. It also features the market shoppers and their perception of the market.  I happened upon it when I was seeing what was streaming on Netflix.

What I took away from the film: I am so blessed to have a great market so close to home. If you are looking for an interesting documentary that features some of the best markets and products this country has to offer, and Farmer's markets are something you are passionate about, check this film out.

Naturally, after watching this I have to find out from you, what do you think is the best?

What's your favorite Farmer's Market?

Why do you love the market?

Have a wonderful weekend!

Best farmers market is in Madison WI held on the walkways circling the
state capitol. Has a huge variety, you can walk around inside the building and see the fantastic architecture. The State Historical society is nearby and they have a good bookstore. You can go to a live broadcast of Michael Feldman's Whadya Know radio show at the Frank Lloyd Wright designed Monona Terrace after your early morning shopping. Then when you are done, before you drive back home you can eat at one of hundreds of great restaurants or stop at Babcock Hall at the University of WI for excellent ice cream. Oh yeah, the Badgers, too.
