Just a quick word to express my sympathy for Brookview farms who suffered a hit this past week when their main pork and beef freezer failed them. Their e-mail sounded of high spirits and focused on all the products they still have to offer post meltdown, but all the same this has to be a very frustrating and financially trying experience.
I would also like to say that I have been meaning to get to the Goochland Saturday Market for a solid year now and have yet to find or "make" the time. Fuel being what it is, and so many great markets so near to my home and work I just haven't made the trip. However, a good friend of ours is there every week selling homemade all natural bug repellent (I've tried this and it really works), lotions, scrubs and such and by all accounts I've heard people seem to love this market.
If any of you reading this have visited or even frequent the Goochland Farmers Market please feel free to post a comment about your market experience west of the city.
Also still trying to get to Ashland FM.....
