Farmers Market 2/21/13

Nothing too exciting to report this week. Once again I didn’t make time to plan anything for next week so I just kind of went with the usual. No fruit this week due to an abundance of bananas and strawberries… it kind of feels incredibly wrong buying strawberries at this time of year but dang…

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…

Farmers Market 1/24/13

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 1/17/13

Another week of January is gone and another trip to the market is done. I probably shouldn’t have bought more fruit as I think I still have enough to get through another week. But I want to experiment more this year with all the citrus. Specifically blood oranges. They may not be as sweet as…

Farmers Market 1/3/13 & 1/10/13

The start of the new year is now past. Everyone is seemingly falling back into the routine of life, myself included. December was nuts. I didn’t make it to a single farmers market in the month of December. Part of me enjoyed the break from having to be at a set place at a set…

Farmers Market 11/8/12

What bright crisp morning at the market today. After a nice little heat wave we are cooling back down to autumn weather. The seasonal change of the market is finally taking place. Apples, pears, and grapes are the front runners in fruit. Along with a heavy showing of persimmons and pomegranates. Noticed several vendors with…

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 10/11/12

Going to be short and to the point today as I should be making dinner right now instead of doing a blog post. Been a busy day but still managed to get to the market. Sorry the pics are so bad… I was in a rush and was too lazy to change lenses… the 35…

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…
