Visiting your Local Farmers' Market for You and Your Parrot

Have you checked out your local Farmers Market lately?

It's a great place to shop for you and your parrot.

Fresh foods, organic foods, locally grown foods with super nutrition at reasonable prices.

In the south, I already have some great food choices at my local market for my parrots starting in the spring such as strawberries, blueberries, lots of fresh greens, non-acidic tomatoes, cucumbers, and yummy sweet potatoes.  Some of these I am lucky enough to grow in my own backyard, and many I don't grow myself, are abundant at my local farmers' market every weekend through the spring and summer.

I highly recommend a visit to your local farmers market and encourage you to be a regular visitor getting to know the farmers and local growers.  Early mornings are often the best time to shop for the largest selection, when certain foods that sell out fast will most likely be available,  However I'm sure anytime you can visit the market you are sure to find something to tempt those busy beaks waiting at home.  You might even find some great starter plants for your own garden.  I purchased two cherry tomato plants myself this morning.  They are sweet small cherry tomatoes and my parrots and grandchildren love them.  I'm trying to decide whether to plant them in my flower bed or in some pots on the patio.  Either way, we will all enjoy them this summer.

By shopping at your local farmers market for your parrots and yourself, you not only guarantee your food is super fresh and the highest quality nutrition, you will also help support your local farmers who work hard to provide good food at good prices.

Did someone say it's almost melon season.  Yum yum!
