Bringing a Touch of France To The Market

Farmers' Markets are popping up all over and it's the popular trend to buy local, buy fresh, buy organic and now to buy directly from the farmer. Michael and I value that, because we're farmers.  I wrote a little bit about our story here.

Currently we sell our produce - gourmet quality vegetables, herbs, flowers, fruit (it's coming) and eggs at the farmers' market and to restaurants.

Recently I visited one of Scottsdale's Farmers' Markets and two summers ago Michael and I strolled through Santa Barbara's market  been to several markets here in the states and in Europe and knew I wanted our spot at the market to be classy, unique and one that would create an experience. I wanted something more than special.

So, I rang Molly and Teresa, two of the worlds most creative sisters and asked them for help.  Molly is a creative artist/screen play writer and Teresa owns and operates the valley's high end and most beautiful flower shop ever - Camelback Flowershop.

Both girls know me well, understand my heart and style as well as my love of things French.  I think Teresa already had the French theme brewing even before she arrived at our farm.

And, so we played with French market ideas on a sweltering Thursday morning.

Teresa brought Frenchy things from her flower shop and gave them as a gift to The Simple Farm.

Very classy and very French for the market.
