Head out to the Farmers Market for the Perfect Thanksgiving Feast

Although I was officially finished with the farmers markets for this year, I was able to add one more date - tomorrow at Trout Lake. It's the PERFECT weekend to head out to the market to get all your delicious fresh goodies for your Thanksgiving dinner! Make sure you wear your hat and raincoat though! Rain or shine, the market is always a fun, vibrant outing!

Maybe you'll need to buy some sugar pumpkins....

....for the pumpkin pie!

Or maybe you'll need to buy some crisp apples to munch on, or.....

...for an Apple pie (my favourite!).

Or some potatoes for that perfect mashed potato side dish, all ready to be smothered in gravy! I always make "Sour Cream Refrigerator Mashed Potatoes"

Or some fresh yams!
