The modern holiday was first celebrated in the U.S. in 1907, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother. She then began a campaign to make “Mother’s Day” a recognized holiday in the US, and she was successful in 1914. The holiday was adopted by other countries and it’s now celebrated all over the world.
This Mother’s Day you can do all your gift shopping at the Market! There are beautiful flowers, and hanging baskets to please the eye. If she has a green thumb, garden and bedding plants are available. Maybe some artisan chocolates or aromatic soaps and balms made with honey would delight her. Of course you can always buy fresh produce, grass-fed meats, artisan cheeses and breads, and prepare a delicious meal you can all share. And don’t forget to pick up some hand-made ice cream for dessert!
