Coventry Farmers’ Market

There is nothing better than walking the aisles of a fabulous farmers’ market. The Coventry Farmers’ Market is a regional affair with a really good combination of farmers, food purveyors, and artisans. I think it has the right mix, though it is a bit short on totally organic fruits and vegetables. You can never have a enough of those!

Welcome to the market.

The one thing that Coventry has over other markets is a tremendous setting. The historic Nathan Hale Homestead is a true Connecticut treasure. The colonial home is so beautiful and the grounds of the home are even better. The stone walls are so classic. We had a blast today.

We walked the market, had some lunch, and picked up some green beans and peaches.


We also did some high quality people watching, which is another benefit of attending farmers’ markets. The crowd was thick, thanks to awesome summer weather. There were too many dogs hanging around, but I managed to deal with all the pups.

Another highlight of today’s market was the 1935 Ford Woody Station Wagon (Beach Wagon) that was wonderfully restored by a local couple. The husband’s parents bought the car in 1952 for $50.00. It was stored on the family property from 1960-1997 before the restoration. It was a nice sight to see.

I never post about food. However, this is the second time this week that I’m posting about food. These #vegan dishes at Empress by @theprivegroup were awesome. #instavegan #singapore Everything worked out fine for @trailrunningmom After a little stress, they had her race packet and bib number at the @metasprintseries venue and she kept it upright on the bike! 🚴🏽 She was very pleased with 2nd place 🏆 in her age group at her first road #Duathlon.🏃🏻There are no mountains ⛰ and there isn’t much singletrack in #singapore but it’s still a great city for endurance sports. It looked like there were more than 1,500 athletes at the 3K/18K/3K race with LOTS of kids too. Great vibe! #triathlonsg #teamhorstsports 🇺🇸 Our kids may recognize this great Shoppes @marinabaysands feature from six years ago. I had forgotten how cool it was. #singapore #marinabaysands First time on a road bike for @trailrunningmom In advance of her first ever road duathlon @metasprintseries I taught her some tips & tricks including the do's/don'ts of shifting strategy, cornering, blocking (not), drafting (not), passing, flying mount/dismount, etc. It was fun! Even though she was on a "rental" too, I couldn't keep up on my "steed." #triathlonsg #singapore #teamhorstsports @thecheryltan #cheryltan #singapore #singapore Name those tunes. 11-year-old Feng E is making a name for himself in Asia and beyond. #guitar #fenge #singapore 🎸 @trailrunningmom led #yoga at #ypoedge #singapore 

@ypoglobal #yogini Tremendous #vegan dinner @metasingapore Without a heads up, Chef Sun and his team whipped up an amazing seven course + three “snacks” meal for @trailrunningmom and me, that was worthy of their @michelinguide star. We sat at the counter and watched every step in the process. Chef said that with advanced notice (of our diet), he “would have done better.” We appreciated his perfectionism, but it was just fine. #metarestaurant #instavegan #michelinguide #singapore
