Farmer's Marker tomorrow-shopping list!
Posted Friday, September 2, 2011 at 11:50 AM
We have a wonderful farmers market on Saturday mornings. The harvest in this area is about 2-3 weeks behind because of the chilly June we had so we've still got some fruit and berries available..or at least we did last week! I am making my shopping list based on what was there last week but will of course have to be flexible!
-Cherry tomatoes (found a great recipe for lightly cooked pasta sauce in the paper last week)
-beets with greens
-cauliflower...last week the only one left was $10!! I said *no thanks*!! Will get there earlier tomorrow to get a better pick
-big bag of salad greens
-peaches...may still be there. Last week was the last week for apricots, but they thought peaches would still be in
-lentils (These are locally grown, not *organic* as that is hard to do for legumes or wheat)
-wheatberries (Just tried these this summer and really like salads with them. Now to find some *wintery* or *autumn-y* lol recipes!)
I wound up spending about $40 last week. Well worth it for local produce. I did get so much a couple of weeks ago I couldnt carry it all! They have little red wagons you can use to transport your goods!
Anyone else going to a farmers market for your kickstart food? What's your shopping list? What are you hoping for soon? We'll have apples coming in Sept as well as winter squash.
