  • I just spent a week in a class where the food was provided. Three square meals a day. Just imagine. No planning, no prep, no shopping. Just sitting down to an immaculately prepared meal.

  • “Look at those beets! This is so exciting!” I can’t help but smile when I hear someone getting all worked up about vegetables at the Homer Farmers’ Market. It lets me know that I’m not the only one who is divinely happy just because Bob Durr brought strawberries to the Market this week or ...

  • The Homer Farmers’ Market is a world unto itself. If you were to go back in time to the central square of the medieval village, this is what you would find: a bustling market.
