As Fresh As It Gets

There are many, many things I love about Holland:

The beach.


The parks.

Macatawa Greenspace

The donuts.

Good Time

But I think there might be one thing I love most of all…

The farmers’ market.

Farmers' MarketFarmers' Market

My main purchases at the farmers’ market are usually flowers, but I have also purchased fruit and veggies there in the past and they’re so great. Just walking through the farmers’ market, even if you don’t purchase anything, is a cool experience from my point of view. There are musicians playing throughout the market, a stand for local coffeeshop Lemonjello’s, and beautiful produce, floral arrangements, and potted plants everywhere the eye can see. Just walking through the market, making small talk with the vendors, and looking at all the gorgeous things that God made to grow on his earth is really calming and interesting to me. The farmers’ market always makes me look forward to Wednesdays and Saturdays, and my mom and two of her friends even came up from Illinois to shop there a couple of weeks ago! It’s such a blessing to live just down the street from it!

“He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.”
