I got up early this morning and made my way over to my favorite farmers market. I had budgeted $32 in cash to spend. ($10 from my vanilla sales and $18 from returning something, and some quarters from my toll stash) I wasn't planning on spending all of it because whatever was left would go to groceries.
I got there early because I wanted to beat the crowds. I also wanted to be sure that I got the main things on my list.
My list was simple enough:
I headed to C&T Produce first.
Here's some big a$$ carrots and some english peas. This tent was booming. Lots of people getting greenhouse tomatoes. They looked so good. I didn't need any because I had one at home.
I bought $8.65 worth of produce from C&T.
-big white onion (so big I'm using it in 3 meals)
-3 white potatoes
I then headed over to my other favorite vendor, Ochoa Produce.
The carrots were right as you entered one side of the tent. They were just beautiful. I overheard some ladies talking about how brightly colored they were.
Elephant garlic. These had garlic flowers. They looked awesome. I took a picture but it came out blurry.
I bought $8.00 of produce at Ochoa.
-1 bunch of carrots
blue potatoes (though they look purple)
Total spent = $16.75
Leaving me with= $15.25
The rest I used on groceries. :)
After I got all my produce I walked around to the other vendors. I like walking around and taking it all in.
Once I got to my car, I took everything out of my tote bag and emptied everything into my farmers market box. The veggies always fit so nicely in the box and then I can see everything I got. :)
Lots of lovely produce....
Broccoli for dinner.....so fresh and I couldn't wait to cut it up.
Here's a blue potato. Doesn't it look purple?
Sugar snap peas
Here's everything. I got a nice haul.
I've already prepped 95% of the produce.
I made beef n' broccoli for dinner tonight. (more on that later) I also made a stir fry and I sauteed vegetables for the week.
The only things left to use are the potatoes (white and purple) and the green beans. :)
