Nothing says "it's summer time" than a fantastic farmer's market.
People walking around buying fresh produce and flowers, while the tune from an acoustic guitar floats on the breeze. Dogs bark, children laugh, and the sun shines bright on your shoulders.
Every Sunday from the beginning of June until October, 9:30am-1:30pm, Hyde Park Square plays host to the Hyde Park Farmer's Market. I found myself attending the market by a complete mistake actually. I was looking for a store in Hyde Park Plaza and got a bit turned around. It was a lovely surprise though and just wondered for about half an hour.
Tents were set up all around the square where many local businesses sold their products. Not only was there fresh produce, you could also get waffles, ice cream, lunch from a food truck, jam, organic dog food, anything really. I regretted eating before since you could easily grab a whole meal, take a seat in the grassy square, and have a little picnic.
So if you're looking for something to do those lazy Sunday mornings, take a trip to Hyde Park and do a little shopping while also supporting the local businesses!
Family beware, if you visit before October and it's the right time, we are totally going here. :)
