Last week, I decided that my weekly adventure would be to walk over to the farmer’s market at Rice University. I looked the location up and set out in the general direction, knowing that it is only about a mile and a half away, so it shouldn’t be that bad of a walk even in the afternoon.

Well, turns out that the parking lot the farmer’s market is in is enormous AND that I really didn’t know where I was going. So I wandered around on the edge of Rice’s campus (which at least is wonderously shaded by live oaks) far out of my way, and then got very lost on my way back. Turns out some of the roads over there near campus don’t follow a grid pattern and a couple are cul de sacs or are closed off from the main road because of construction. So I did some backtracking and wandering until I finally came out only a block away from where I wanted to be. At least I had blessedly decided to buy some sunscreen at the drugstore on the way there, so I didn’t get fried to a crisp. When I finally got home, I had been gone from 3:05 until almost 5:30. I enjoyed a lovely, very cold, bath, too, mostly for my poor little feet!

Since then, I thought a bit about what would make that trip more enjoyable. I bought a street map and a hat, plus some ice packs to keep food cold. I also figured out which bus I could catch if I was too tired or had too much to carry back home, and that the nearest train station is only four blocks away.

In other words, I did all the planning I should have done in the first place.

Today, I set out with my hat and sunglasses, sunscreen applied, and two bags, one canvas and one insulated with an ice pack. I left at 3:15 and was back home by 4:45! It’s amazing what knowing where you are going can do.

Here’s my haul from the farmer’s market.

It was a pretty pleasant walk this week. My route is about 50/50 sun and shade, and it is anywhere from breezy to gusty. So even though it is hot and a bit humid, it is no where near unbearable. Plus, one of the houses had its sprinklers misting the sidewalk, which is a treat. Next time, I might put a frozen washcloth in a bag so that I can cool off a bit before shopping. All in all, it was less than 3 miles round-trip.

Tiff, I want a worm box, too! I would settle for a rain barrell, but Daddy won’t let me have one! Where will you get the worms?

MOST of the food looks wonderful - some I don’t know what it is! Is the route to the farmer’s market safe with people around?

What don’t you know what it is? Samosas are those little triangle things next to the squash–they have a vegetable/bean filling.

The route is very safe. I have to cross two busy streets that have street lights and crosswalks, and the rest of it is through nice residential neighborhoods until I get to Rice’s campus. All but one block has sidewalks, and that block is a neighborhood street that is not busy. Pretty much all of our area of Houston is safe for walking during the day, especially during the week. It’s a much more comfortable and safe walking environment and more pedestrian-friendly than where we lived in either Raleigh or Athens.
