Yesterday, I hopped on the CCTA bus from campus to downtown Burlington (free for students with your KnightCard) and spent my Saturday morning exploring the Burlington Farmers' Market. This was the 3rd time I've been to the market this year, and I try to go as often as I can because there is so much to enjoy. The Farmer's Market happens every Saturday morning from 8:30am- 2pm in City Hall Park, right behind Church Street during the summer and fall months until the weather stops cooperating. Then, it moves inside for the winter, so there are still a few chances to pick up your local favorites.
While browsing the market yesterday, I tried so many different types of food and saw so many cool things.

|Every since studying abroad in France this summer and getting one everyday, I'd been craving a pain au chocolat (chocolate croissant), and I was so happy to find one at the Farmer's Market.|
|You can always find musicians playing for the crowds while shopping around.|
|My favorite thing to pick up while they're still in season: Sunflowers!|
