Poetry Friday: We're Going to the Farmers' Market

Here's a smooth, clean, precisely illustrated rendition of a trip to the local farmers' market. The rhymes are great for Poetry Friday.

To market,
to market,
we are on our way.
So many groceries to find,
on this warm sunny day.

To farmer,
to farmer,
we visit them all
for eggs, milk, and cheese,
fruits and veggies big and small.

To market with your totz, reciting this book all the way.

Hi there Lorie Ann, I was actually reminded of the old nursery rhyme: This Little Piggy went to market, this little piggy stayed home. One of my daughter's absolute favourites when she was younger.

I wish my girls were still teeny tiny to share this one with them. Gives so much more meaning to tiny people's trips to the Farmers' Market. Thanks for sharing. = )
