Farmers Market 2/14/13

Not much to report from the market today. Didn’t really get much of a game plan for the next week so I stocked up on some staples and few items that are workable. Been using a lot more kale so I decided to buy 2 bunches instead of 1 for the week. We’ll see how…

Farmers Market 2/7/13

No messing around this week. Writing and posting this post on the actual day I went to the market. Pretty much standard stuff this week. Still have a fair amount of citrus from last week so I didn’t need to buy any. Though I did notice that the prices are starting to creep up. Most…

Farmers Market 1/31/13

While I continue to get caught up on things here is the farmers market haul from last week. I went light on veggies simply because I didn’t get a chance to plan meals for the week. Which is sometimes good because it forces me to get a bit creative use up everything. I found some…

Pretty minimal farmers market run today. Almost didn’t go but am glad I did. Kale Green onions Carrots Avocado Pomello Cara cara oranges Blood oranges Pink lady apples Lemons And one item I couldn’t resist… a bag of very rip persimmons for $1. Not sure what I will do with them but I will have…

Farmers Market 4/26/12

Farmers Market 4/19/12

With Will being out of town this week the fridge still has a fair amount of veggies that need to be used up so I only picked up a few things this morning. Was completely surprised to find romanesco today! Looking forward to doing something fun with this fractal patterned/fibonacci numbered broccoli/cauliflower beauty. That was…

Farmers Market 4/5/12

A day late, I know! But I did get back to the market yesterday after being gone for nearly two weeks. It really did feel like I overbought but I didn’t. Instead I ended up splurging on 3 “new to me” items. Making up for the last couple of weeks? Maybe. Satsumas Guava (possibly green…

Farmers Market 3/15/12

I managed to forge the wet and foggy weather this morning and made it to the market. Had a small haul of veggies today because of our trip to Tennessee and North Carolina next week. Most of the veggies I picked up today are for some vegetable stock for a winter minestrone soup (in addition…
