Yesterday I decided to celebrate my renewed ability to walk and tolerate the sun by going to both farmer's markets! The County farmer's market has one-third the vendors, but is very low key and not so crowded. Shoppers there tend to SHOP, as opposed to CHAT. The City farmer's market is very, very crowded and they have live music. The vendors are diverse, as are the items for sale. People wander and socialize, tripping over kids. There was an actual line, ten deep, to get to the corn guy. Seriously, I doubt his corn was locally grown. But, whatever.
Clockwise from top: burpless cucumber, 75 cents; Strawberry-Rhubarb pie, $5; beets & greens, $2; baby eggplants, $1.75; patty pan squash, $2; rainbow chard, $3; new potatoes, $1.75. We also bought a pound of ground beef (not pictured), $3.
Some of the veggies went into a scrumptious beef stir-fry last night. Unfortunately, my larger burner decided to quit, so had to cook on the smaller front burner. Am I going to have to buy a new stove? YIKES!
We hope you had a Fun & Floofy Fourth! xxoo Patty & Bhu
