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 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 9/20/12

It was a nice surprise to find organic raspberries for $1 a basket! Hence, the flat! I don’t have an immediate use for them so most are going to be frozen to use for baking down the road. Om nom nom. Valencia oranges Yellow peaches Nectarines Raspberries! Nothing terribly exciting in the veggie department. Didn’t…

Farmers Market 8/23/12

One too many days late, but I did make it to the market last Thursday and was able to take some photos but time hasn’t allowed me to get the post up till now… Monday, the following week. This week I intended to buy a honeydew melon but only found ginormous melons. Like way too…

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….

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…

Farmers Market 3/8/12

Aside from the artichokes and citrus I didn’t have much of a plan for the market today. I think I came out with a pretty good variety this week. I noticed a few new items this week, specifically guava and taro root, that I chickened out in purchasing. But thats what a google search and…

Farmers Market 2/23/12

Thursday was such a bright and abundant day at the market. I truly do think it was due to the sun shining. The highlight was finding these awesome rustic/gnarly carrots and a purple cauliflower. I’m already thinking the cauliflower is going to be used for a soup that is heavily laden with goat cheese despite…
