I got out the the local, big farmer's market this past weekend for the first time this summer. It is about a 25 minute drive from my house, but it is worth it. It will be even more worth it next month when everything is in season.
I like shopping for produce at the Farmer's Market because it is fresh from the farm. Some veggies still even have dirt on them. There is a huge variety and a sense of helping the local farmer.
I started the day off with some fuel- PB on toast and some coffee to go!
Summer tunes are essential to the drive.
I got to the market around 8am. Still a little drowsy.
The market wasn't too busy at this time. It was nice and easy to maneuver.
I was done all my shopping by...
The loot includes:
-a dozen free range, vegetarian diet eggs
-3 Zucchini/summer squash/courgettes (call them what you will!)
-a bunch of Asparagus
-a bunch of Kale
I can't wait until there are plenty of string beans, tomatoes, beets, cucumbers, melons, etc. August is a great month for the farms and gardens.
What is your favorite summer fruit/veggie?
