The Farmer’s Market

I’ve only recently discovered that every Thursday from 3-8 p.m. there is a farmer’s market in Herzliya Pituach. The market is set up in a park in the southernmost boundary of the industrial zone. The park is ringed by steel and glass buildings housing high tech companies, one of which is Israel’s R&D center for Microsoft. Brightly colored, whimsical statues of fish and reptile-like creatures decorate the park. It’s not a very large market but the offerings are tempting and tasty. Aside from a few green grocers there are vendors selling, among other items, ready-made Middle-Eastern food, fresh-baked bread, pastries and cookies, a nice selection of cheeses, homemade olives and fresh-cut flowers. The vendors are friendly and most speak English. It’s been a pleasure to shop there the last couple of weeks but I wonder how it will go when the heat of summer arrives.
