Farmer’s Market Haul

Last Saturday I was in a huge snit (because I tripped over everything in my foyer: shoes, dogs, dog crates) and smashed my FACE into the door frame) so I sulked in bed all day and missed the farmer’s market, including my FAVORITE vendor, Bean Boy, who isn’t gong to be back until August 20th 🙁 This week I was determined not to waste the opportunity to grocery shop right outside my house (I hate going to the grocery store, remember?) so I took out cash on Friday night and hit the stalls bright and early Saturday morning.

July 23rd Farmer's Market Haul

clockwise from top left: cauliflower, broccoli, arugula, peaches, honey sticks (for Sym), raspberries, peaches (the first of the season), long English peas (I used these in the salad I made for lunch and they were SO GOOD I went back out and bought a huge bag of them!), cheese, rainier cherries, mint, heirloom tomatoes and whole wheat berry muffins.

One thing I’ve noticed this year is that the market by my house is becoming more of a “get here super early” event, definitely more so than in previous years. It’s on from 9am to 2pm, but a lot of stalls are running out of produce at on or even noon! I like to walk my dogs past the market at 8:30 BEFORE I go to shop so I can “pre-plan” what I’m going to buy, and yesterday there were people lining up at some of the stalls already! The early bird gets the tomatoes, I guess.
