El Dorado Hills Farmer's Market

Fresh air and exercise doesn't always have to be a complicated endeavor.  Yesterday morning, I suggested we walk the 1.5 miles to the Farmer's Market in El Dorado Hills Town Center.  It took us about 30 minutes to get there because it was mostly downhill.  I told my husband that it felt like the olden days when people had to walk to town to get their supplies.

The outdoor market is a wonderful place to visit on a Sunday morning.  We couldn't resist the naan and lamb curry after being given ample samples to tempt us. The fresh strawberries from Watsonville, and the white and yellow peaches made it feel like summer was finally here after the most precipitous winter on record.

I was thankful that we thought to carry a backpack to make it easy to haul our booty back up the hill.  Also, don't forget plenty of water and comfy walking shoes!  On the way home, it was a nice surprise to come across a neighbor with children in tow, who were headed for the same place.  It gave me hope that more people are getting out on foot or bike rather than taking a short drive.

The walk was mostly pleasant except for the noise and smell of the cars along El Dorado Hills Blvd and because of the 6 road crossings, (some with crossing lights and some without) the future walking bridge across HWY 50 from the bottom of Serrano to Towne Center will make it a more pleasant for pedestrians.
