Farmers Market 11/1/12

Back at the market this week. I didn’t go last week because I felt like I had just enough produce to get through another week. It was a creative stretch but I think we fared okay. I’m not sure if the expense evens out over the weeks or not but I definitely spent more than…

Farmers Market 10/18/12

The fruit I picked up today kind of strikes me. It just doesn’t seem right that I can buy peaches, watermelon, and grapes straight from the farmers market. California growing seasons never cease to amaze, nor the sheer access I have to so many different fruits and veggies because of my geographical location. I mean…

Farmers Market 10/4/12

No more raspberries at the market this week. Kind of wish I would have bought two flats last week rather than one. But I did get a great price on strawberries! Six bucks for half flat of organic/incredibly still sweet strawberries! Half of the flat has already been cleaned and chopped into small pieces and…

Farmers Market 9/13/12

Back to our regularly scheduled program today! After any time away, even if it is just two weeks, it is really fascinating to see how the season is moving along. Grapes are every where in the market now. Cherry tomatoes are gone, but the price of heirlooms are starting to come down. The big fruit…

Farmers Market 8/2/12

It felt good to get back to the market today. After one too many runs to Safeway around and between travel days, I am reminded once again why I love and appreciate everything I buy at the farmers market. Big box grocers simply cannot compare to what farmers markets offer. I went for a little…

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 3/1/12

Despite being rainy and foggy as I made my trek to the market this morning, I think I made out pretty well. I found some Okinawan sweet potatoes! I knew I was overdue to purchase something “new to me” at the market, but really? I was sold upon seeing their beautiful purple flesh. There is…

Farmers Market 1/26/12

I went a little overboard on January’s bountiful fruit. Satsumas Blood Oranges Tangerines Pink Lady Apples Pippin Apples Lemons Red Grapes Green Onions Carrots Napa Cabbage Russet Potatoes Garnet Yams Broccoli Cauliflower Tomatoes Butternut Squash
