Shayna Jaymie Murray, Mommy Outside the Box
We have a new guest blogger that we would like to welcome to KinderBuzz, Shayna Jaymie Murray from Mommy Outside the Box. Check out her blog this week with some great insight from a kid's point of view into one of our favourite summer experiences here in Regina, The Regina Farmer's Market.
Things change when you have a kid. Your time is no longer just yours. Your money is no longer just yours. What you do and where you go often change too. But, thankfully, we all have places and activities we enjoyed preparenthood that we not only can haul the little ones along to but actually get excited about sharing with them.
My husband and I have always loved the Regina Farmer’s Market. We love fresh, locally grown and produced food and handcrafted goodies and we also love to shop local. There is also such a sense of community at the Farmer’s Market. That is really important to us. Our city is growing and growing all the time. It used to be you ran into someone you knew almost everywhere you went in this city. Not so much anymore. But when you wander down to places like the Farmer’s Market there is just a sort of neighbourly attitude that makes you feel at home, even if you aren’t. You can find fresh veggies, baking, jams, pickles, the list goes on and on. But there is so much more! There is a myriad of awesome local vendors selling everything from garden decor to luxurious lotions. Oh and, to my little one’s delight, jewelry!
All set to go with her princess water bottle. Had to stop and pose with the elephant sculpture!
First stop at the Farmer’s Market? Well Molly loves sweet treats and daddy loves baking so off we go to find something for them both. It wasn’t hard finding some yummy homemade goodies. It was hard to decide on what to take home though!
