Farmers Market 5/10/12

I think the season has officially changed at the market. It totally felt like a new market! There were more vendors, stone fruits were showing up… the likes of peaches, apricots, cherries, green plums. Several more vendors had tomatoes. Summer squash is starting to make an appearance. The price of strawberries has dropped several dollars. And I found jalapeños! No greens this time around because Olivia asked me to start harvesting out of her garden. I am more than happy to help.

  • Green beans
  • Tomatoes
  • Green garlic
  • Okinawan sweet potatoes
  • Young summer squash/Patty pan squash
  • Red garlic
  • Jalapeños
  • Yellow onions

  • Cara cara oranges
  • Lemons
  • Cosmetically challenged apricots

I quite love the cosmetically challenged fruits. Not only do they make for great photographs (not in this case) but they are usually a fraction of the cost. In this case they were only .88 cents a pound verses the $2.50 a pound for the full grown pretty ones. Though because they are the first of the season they are not very sweet. Oh well, not much of a loss when I only purchased half a pound.
