One of my favorite things to do with my mom is go to the farmer’s market on Saturday morning. If anyone ever visits this market in Syracuse, I have two words for you: Doughnut cart. For a measly 50 cents you can buy an airy, melt-in-your-mouth, cinnamon-and-sugar coated taste of heaven. Ditch the diet and dig in—you won’t regret it.
Besides doughnuts, kettle corn and Amish baked goods, you’ll find farm-fresh produce, sweet-smelling flowers, organic soaps and much more. My mom and I make a ritual of picking up healthy fruits and veggies, and then going home to cook up a yummy meal. Okay, she makes the meal. My job is to be the taste tester. I’m good at it!
