I finally bought myself a new camera. Guess I took one photo too many and my poor Lumix decided to retire.

Well, March is nutrition month and since I blogged about it last year, I thought I should remind everyone again that what we feed our bodies is important to our health. Every Saturday morning at the Saskatoon Farmers’ Market nutritionists will be in the Agrium Market Kitchen to answer your questions, plus demo nutritious ideas.

But if you can’t talk to a nutritionist, there are plenty of other knowledgeable people on hand to give you the “thumbs ups” on healthy foods.

And to name a few:

Wally’s Urban Market Garden – Wally always has a beautiful presentation of fresh vegetables. Pictured, Sunshine Squash and Rainbow Carrots.
