Today is the autumn equinox. Wednesday, September 23rd, 2015. A normal day that may become something special. Or perhaps, just an ordinary day. That my friend is all up to you. The weather has begun to cool. If you can find them, the leaves have began to turn colors. For those that are new to Arizona. This is the time to get outside.

The Globe-Miami Farmers Market is in it’s final two weeks. The stands are setup by 8am and stay that way until about 11am. With only a couple of chances left to sell their goods, the vendors will be handing out deals left and right. You can expect to find fresh fruits and vegetables that are grown locally. However, that is just the tip of the iceberg with home made bread, soaps and lotions, eggs, fresh cut flowers, canned jellies and jams. There is no excuse as Saturday is projected to a be a cool, sunny day. Take the time to enjoy the morning air.
