Farmers Market 2/18/12

Wasn’t able to make it to the Thursday morning market but instead went this morning. I am definitely blessed to live in a very small proximity to quite a few farmers markets that are open year round. While I was at the same location as the thursday morning market, it truly was a different market. Much smaller and a different set of farms/vendors. I was also surprised to not see too many people there right after it opened. I still made out pretty good and got everything on my list.

  • Carrots
  • Red potatoes
  • Green beans
  • Spinach
  • Curly Kale
  • Tomatoes

I was happily surprised to find the green beans. There are several recipes I need them for this week and was expecting to have to run to New Leaf to get them. One less trip averted.

  • Pomelos
  • Navel oranges
  • GrannySmith apples

The farm I’ve like to buy citrus from wasn’t there today so I restrained myself to not buy too much. The apples are for a couple of recipes and the others for breakfast/snacks.

I was happy to find someone selling honey! Will has been wanting me to buy some local artisan honey. Mission accomplished. There were several different kinds; wildflower, boysenberry, eucalyptus, and sage. They all had a very unique flavor. I chose sage for it’s subtle and softness.
