Come on down to The Mart if y’all can!

Folks, have you ever shopped in a store before? I bet you have! This Farmer loves to shop – especially learning to shop from the best shoppers I know –  shop owners themselves!

Americasmart is the largest mart in the country and THE SOURCE for, well, just about anything you can think of to feather your nest, deck your hall, clad with couture or simply sport some bling.  I urge you folks to shop local and spend local – these folks who run their mom and pop shops work like a smart gardener works their plot – they plan and harvest from the best sources.

If you want a spring garden full of foxgloves and snapdragons, you’re going to have to plant them and plan for them ahead of time – plant in fall for a splendid spring and plant in spring for a fabulous fall! That’s just what a savvy store owner does – they plan their Market trip so that the very next season’s best offerings are right there on Main Street USA… Or Carroll Street, East Clayton, South College and Magnolia, in the Westside District, Mountain Brook Village, Rodeo Drive, Greenwich Village or Highland Park… depending just what neck of the woods you find yourself.

This will be my second year speaking and signing books at Americasmart in the ATL and I just cannot wait!! I’ll be speaking on A Time to Plant which these shoppers will totally understand – it’s all about planning! I’ll also be cooking up a Southern storm, with recipes from my forthcoming book, A Time to Cook, which will be here this spring!

Come on down to The Mart if y’all can! Plan your garden and plan your shopping so you too can harvest the best! To market, to market this Farmer shall go! To market, to market, jiggity-jig-jig!!!
