Saturday morning, I woke up with a sore throat, headache, slight fever, and just feeling blah. :( I believe it's a head cold. I got up and got ready to go because I had to meet some coworkers at the mall for an event we had to do. I left a little early so I could hit up the downtown farmers market to get some farm fresh veggies. It was a cloudy, rain any minute kinda morning so it wasn't busy at all at the time I got there. I haven't been to this market in some time. The layout is a little different b/c they closed off a section of the main street which lets the vendors spread out. I love the new look. So much better to walk around and not trample upon anyone or trample upon strollers.
I walked to my favorite vendor first and loaded up my tote bag with a ton of farm fresh goodies. I spent a total of $12.15 on my debit card. :)
I then walked around to each vendor to see what they had. This farmer had some really cute packaging and lots of beautiful colors! I like that this farm is all organically grown. It's Blenheim Organic Farms.
I loved this. It's a salsa kit. Everything you need to make some fresh homemade salsa. I was temped to buy a kit but decided not to.
These sunflowers made me smile. :)
I walked back towards my car and found a vendor that had celery and broccoli. I had $5 cash in my wallet. The celery was $2 for the whole stalk and the broccoli was $2 per pound. My total for the celery and broccoli came to $4! My total produce amount came to $16.15 for all my farm fresh veggies for the week!
I then went to the mall and took my veggies inside with me. I didn't want to leave them in the hot car.
Here's everything I got.
1 butternut squash (my new obsession)
3 huge green peppers
2 huge carrots
1 white onion
2 yellow onions
2 large zucchini
2 small zucchini
2 small squash
2 broccoli bundles
$16.15 well spent! :)
