On October 30, a group of 44 fourth graders from Town School for Boys visited the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market for a field trip. The thank-you letters they wrote have brought a lot of joy to us here in the CUESA office, and we thought we’d share a few of their notes and illustrations with our readers.

Dear Farmer’s,
I had a really good time at the farmers market. I thought that the smoked salmon and the information about bugs was good. I think being a farmer would be very, very hard. I hope that you bring in a very good harvest this fall and the rest of the year.
Sincerely,
 Sean

To our friends at the Farmers’ Market-
I liked visiting your market today. It was lots of fun. My favorite part was tasting and looking at the apples. I never knew how many types of apples there were! My favorite fruit was the blackberrys.

P.S. I liked the food!!!

Dear Farmers,
Thank you so so much for letting us come to the farmers market!! I really enjoyed the trip. All the fresh foods were such a treat for my taste buds!! My favorite foods were the apples, potatoes, peppers & more. I will defintly come again.
Sincerely,
 Abe

Dear farmers,
Your food was so good! Thank you for having us at the farmers market. I had a great time tasting your food. There was so many good fruits and vegetables. My favorite part was seeing and tasting new foods I never heard of. I hope we can go back to the farmers market again!
Sincerely,
 Aaron

Dear our friends at the farmers’ market,
Thank you for selling fresh food and organic goods. You are a nice bunch of people and very hard workers. I love going to the farmers market because there is so much food and goods. My favorite food there are the grapes. Also thank you for doing this I rather go to the farmers market than the grocery store. Thanks again.
Your customer,
 Henry

Dear Farmers,
I had a lot of fun at your market. There were a lot of things to look at. It is amazing that food can be so good, even when it’s being grown from under ground or from bushes. When I was smaller, I thought that fruit tasted really bad. But now that I’m older it’s a ton better.
Your friend Mattie
