Today I went to explore again, looking for new spots and interesting places to make more videos for my youtube channel.
I always wanted to go to this area in particular but health conditions, winter and virus crisis made that trip impossible until these last 2 weeks.
Many farms around, little roadside farmer markets near the fields and mountains. I love to stop in those places and buy directly from the hands that grew and made the food. Nothing better.
So, I found this little store right next to the road, it had a colorful beautiful front, with signs and ornaments. So inviting, I couldn't resist.
The door was closed but it had the typical sign saying "Open". So I went inside. A local radio mixing news and music, shelves and fridges with many products. Milk, eggs, cheese, fruit jam, honey. All delicious natural stuff. Everything had the price wrote with a marker.
There was also a table with a notebook, a pen, a calculator and a metal box for cash. Nobody there. I look around outside, found nobody.
Then I read a note on the notebook, from the last person who was there. I understood what I had to do but I still found it hard to believe. It took me like 10 minutes more to proceed with my purchase.
I grabbed the products I wanted. Wrote the list of my items with their prices and the total amount. It was $19.50. I opened the box, put a $20 bill, grabbed my 50 cents change and closed again.
I think some farmers are avoiding contact with other people because the virus. I told my mother in law about it, we will go back and buy more next week. I must give all the support I can to a farmer who trust in people that much. Maybe they have a hidden camera but I don't think so.
The experience and the products I bought had the same taste, the taste of the America we almost forgot.

Don't forget to leave a card or name and phone number, those good people often have needs or wants that you may be able to fill.
Working hands always need help, and you might have a skill or contact that could make a world of difference.
