Oh hey there farmers market,
I really like your style.
I think I’ll get a coffee
And hang about a while.
And while I’m here perusing
Can I say a thing or two?
An ode to why I think your great
‘Cause seriously - I do!
I love that when I come here
I can talk to the producers
They tell me what’s good growing
And what goes best in juices.
We talk about their lives
We chat like two real souls.
And it feels so much more human
Than those fluoro lights at Coles!
I love to see the products
That have been made by human hands
That don’t support nasty practices
In far off foreign lands.
I love the organic local stuff
That’s kinder to our soils,
I love that I get chocolate straight from a plate
Not wrapped in plastics and foils!
I love my plant man telling me How best to grow my herbs. I love this bustling patch of green Nestled in the ‘burbs. And most of all I love that Shopping can feel and do some good. I think there should be a market In every damn neighbourhood.
