Farmers Market Run

Look at all this wonderful produce from our tiny local Farmers' Market. Everything is organic, except the tomatoes (grown indoors without sprays).

This bounty includes:

  • a bunch of leeks

  • a bunch of green garlic

  • four onions

  • four oranges

  • eight lemons

  • four tomatoes

  • 1 lb English peas

  • 12 oz strawberries

  • 12 oz cleaned baby spinach

  • a bunch of baby turnips

  • a large bunch of carrots

  • Cost: Just under $20.00 (the tomatoes were the most expensive item at $3/lb) .

    Sure to be the best spent $20 this week!

    I felt so grateful for this, I just wanted to share.

    What a fabulous photo--and haul. But the best part of this post?

    "I felt so grateful for this, I just wanted to share."

    Besides being lovely, it makes me a teensy bit less jealous. : )

    I've been writing about our farmers market here in Phoenix too. Not only am I finding some great stuff, I am meeting the most wonderful people.

    Hi Farmgirl - I'm jealous of you finding green garlic all over the place - I could spend a lifetime chopping that stuff!

    Dave - it is really cool to get out there and talk to people about the food they're selling. Sure beats pushing a cart around aisles in a grocery store!

    Ivonne - I agree. You barely need to cook this food!
