A traditional Sunday ritual. 🌈
Stepping out to embrace the fresh air in the morning around 9 am, strolling around the Farmers’ Markets before they open, watching the farmers meticulously arrange food on their stands, prepping for a busy day.
🍎🥕 Every Sunday for the past 3 months, I’ve been going to a Farmers’ Market near my house. Farmers from all over the UK come with shining smiles to sell their exquisite products.
This is the day when farmers can sell their hard-earned produce, which they have lovingly nurtured with enormous effort.
The fruits of their labour, grown with their own hands, make the journey from the farm to the market — which is a process I find truly beautiful.
The food you see in the picture is today’s haul, all organic 🍅🥦, free from preservatives, and ready to energise me for the day and week ahead. 😋
Do you believe that the food you eat influences your daily mood?
☀️ Fruits and vegetables, nurtured by the soil and sun, directly impact how we feel about ourselves, our bodies, and, ultimately, our environment.
Healthy food promotes a healthy body and a clearer mind. 💚
To be honest, this topic is an interesting one for me because in Turkey, where I grew up, fresh fruits and vegetables were always readily accessible.
I was fortunate enough to live in a house with a garden 🏡 where I could handpick cherries, plums, apples, nuts, and apricots straight from the trees. 🍒 🍑 🍎 🌰
However, since moving abroad, I have had a difficult time adapting to the fruits sold in local supermarkets like Tesco or Sainsbury’s. I usually find them to be bland. 😂
This led me to explore other ways to nourish myself with the world’s richness, with foods that would rejuvenate my soul.
That’s when I discovered the Farmers’ Markets. 🍀
Interestingly, they are not even more expensive than stores; you can often find them at similar prices or cheaper, and with far superior quality.
👉🏼 If you have access to a Farmer’s Market, I encourage you to explore it. You won’t just enjoy fantastic food; you’ll also be supporting local businesses and farmers.
Lastly, I believe that sharing food and eating together is one of the greatest ways to form a bond with another human.
When you appreciate the food and its source, a beautiful bond forms between you, the soil, the farmer, and the food. 🌱👨🌾🥦
And this is the magical mixture that can heal a soul. ✨
