Default Local Farmer's Market! Awesome!

Yesterday at work my mom e-mailed me an article she found in our local paper about a new farmer's market that was opening in town. We went this morning. It was small but I was still able to buy some home grown fresh produce! I spent a grand total of $10 and bought some local honey, lots of squash, and four peppers. We stuffed the peppers for dinner and they were delicious! I can't wait to go back next Saturday and get more. As the season goes on I am sure there will be a greater variety of veggies there. This will be really great!

The one in our area started small but now is wonderful. You can get everything from fruit to grass fed beef.

I am looking forward to what they will have next week when I go.

Today for lunch I took the squash and peeled it and sauteed it in a pan with garlic and onion powder, a touch of salt, and some cracked black pepper. I diced up half of a chicken breast and cooked it as well. Then I put that in a container, topped it with some spaghetti sauce and a little grated parmesan cheese. I can't wait to try it at lunch time! It smelled fantastic while cooking!

I really hope the pepper lady has more when I go back! Those were awesome!

I love produce stands! I used to love asparagus when I was little but for some reason grew to hate it as I got older. Now I've been eating it again for the first time in years, roasted with olive oil and sea salt. I love how crispy the buds get in the oven

farmers markets make my heart pitter patter! My DF and I are hoping to put somethings in it next year ( we grow a moderate garden and he does a lot of wood work and whatnot) But anyway.. I go there before grocery shopping every saturday. I don't know, but I just feel healthy and better cooking local, more natural food! YUMMY!

Farmer's markets are the best and I am fortunate that there are 3 of them that I know about in my city.

I go to a farmers market regularly. However being in the city I find it is quite expensive compared to when I go to markets in small towns or from roadside stands.
This being said it is worth paying more. I would rather buy organic steak from a farmer that can tell me about the meat/cow and so forth. I just eat steak less often. Some things are more then fairly priced in season as well.

I love my local farmer's market, & I can't wait for it to open back up in June. I love stocking up on blueberries and strawberries, as well as goat milk soap. We have hundreds of vendors so I can always find good stuff.

I'm quite excited to hit up a farmer's market this spring. Now that I am living in a small town they have them in my area.
