I went to the farmers market bright and early this morning so I could get my produce for the week. I love just walking around and seeing all the fresh veggies, plants and flowers.
I had $20 cash to spend and I left with $2.50. :)
Strawberries, sugar snap peas, baby potatoes, zukes and squash.
I'm so glad more and more produce is coming in each and every weekend.
I got 2 of these last weekend and they were awesome. I only got 1 basket today. And I already used them up for dinner tonight. :)
Regular squash and zukes.
I leave a nice sturdy produce box in my car for my goodies b/c it's easier to travel home with them spread out in the box. When not in use the box fits perfectly behind my seat with my market tote bag.
Here's everything I got.
5 red potaotes
sugar snap peas
1 greenhouse tomato
Farm Fresh and locally grown.
Last week, I saw the radishes and knew I wanted to get some this weekend to try. I tried one raw earlier and they have a kick to them. I sliced some up and cooked it in dinner tonight. The are good cooked with other veggies.
I was delighted to see freshly picked sugar snap peas!! :)
Marigolds.....I couldn't leave them behind so I got this plant.
This past week, I signed up for a farmers market challenge. It's a pledge that you will spend at least $10 per week at a local farmers market. If you are in Virginia you can pledge too. Why buy from a local farmers market? It helps our farmers and it's food you feel good about eating. Buy local! :)
