Just a quick hop over a bridge, and 30-45 minute ride on the turnpike or parkway and I am in another place...... a calmer, greener, happier place. Fortunately I have friends who left the city and are now living in New Jersey. One of my favorite things to do when visiting is to go to farm markets.

They sell the best apple cider doughnuts all year long, but on the weekend, you can purchase them hot out of the fryer. Lines are a little bit crazy.

All types of syrup, many are also sugar free. The produce lasts a lot longer than when I purchase it in a supermarket, as theirs is super fresh! I did not buy any goodies that day, as my bins at home were recently filled and this was a surprise drive by!

I am joining Alma, The Tablescaper, for her new weekly linky party, Oh, The Places I've Been. I hope to share some past vacations, if Google + will just mind its business and let me upload photos the old way! But please stop by and do some arm chair travel. It's free and it's safe!
Also joining Foodie Friday at Rattlebridge Farm, and Sunny Simple Sunday at Sunny Simple Life. Thank you to all the hostesses.
