Detox Drink + acoupla shots of the Buffalo, MN Farmer's Market

Detox Drink
It's Saturday and the Buffalo, MN Farmer's Market sent me an 8:00 AM text alerting me that they are open for business! So, I'm about to drink up this Detox Drink and head on down to the market for some locally grown goodness. I'm taking along my camera because I want you to see my beautiful market. Check it out!

Detox Drink
Now, go support your local Farmer's Market by grabbing the ingredients for this Detox Drink. You'll probably be able to find kale, carrots, celery, honey and herbs at your market, but you'll need a grocery store for the lemons, limes, ginger and cherry juice. All the ingredients are thrown into the blender, whirred up for a minute or two with some ice and then you pour into a glass. As you drink this, you kind of chew on the mixture to wake-up digestion and get more pep in your step! Enjoy!

Tell me… What have you picked up at the Farmer's Market this season?
