Farmer's Markets and Local Communities

Community: a unified body of individuals;  an interacting population of various kinds of individuals in a common location
As Donne and Merton both asserted throughout their work, "No Man is an Island." They spoke the truth!!! We need each other and living in intentional community is a life-giving experience, but if we pretend we can live without one another then we will go without one another. 

In Santa Barbara we have a Farmer's Market 6 days of each week which not only allows for local farmers to sell to their neighbors and provides us as a community to knit ourselves together and support one another as well as nourish our families and friends with goods that are reliable and local.

Here's to shopping local.
