"I made this series of watercolors to honor and elevate the food we find at the farmers market. I love farmers markets because they're a really authentic reflection of culture, and the community that organizes and patronizes them. Plus, when we buy at the farmers market, we are strengthening our local economy in a really significant way. Not only is more of the profit from these goods going directly to the growers and producers, but much less is spent on unneeded packaging, marketing and transportation." Marcella Kriebel
