The Sweet Smell of Spring

by on March 30, 2018

When the calendar nears April, Spring is close and so is warmer weather, longer days and outdoor activities. The season is so refreshing that scientists believe that just its smell causes people to become more relaxed and to even feel joy. The scents of freshly cut grass and flowers are documented to have calming effects, even easing insomnia and depression. Who wouldn’t like Spring? The Vernal Equinox. The entrée to Summer. What better way to celebrate but to stroll through an outdoor market. And what better market than the Summit Farmer’s Market. April is the perfect time to walk, bike or drive over to the Summit Farmer’s Market. Opening on April 22, this outdoor market located near the heart of Summit is the perfect mix of food shopping and family affair. If you’re children aren’t busy chomping on a pickle stick or devouring duffin (yes, that’s a combination muffin/donut), they will be busy petting the dogs that shoppers bring, including what seems to be every poodle mix under the sun. Meanwhile, you will stay busy shopping at the different stands that are selling local produce, meats, breads, gourmet cheeses and other food products. Make sure you try the Instagram worthy acai bowls and kimchi. Sunday mornings at the Summit Farmers Market will sure to become a staple in your household.
