This morning I ventured to the Farmer's Market.
It was packed.
Which made my locavore heart pitter patter.
Here are the goodies I came home with:
See that gross looking tomato? The farmer said that the 'bad looking' ones actually taste the best. He told me to compare a 'bad one' and a 'good one' and report back next week.
And I shall.
This is our neighbor's homemade baklava. She lives 3 houses down and has a booth of homemade goodies at the Farmer's Market. It is amazing. And only $1.25.
Total, I spent $9.25 for everything.
2 candy onions
1 green pepper
1 heavenly slice of baklava
I went to SuperTarget later and priced the same items.
I saved $1.50 overall.
And none of my produce has pesticides, herbicides, etc.
And I put money right into the Farmer's pockets.
I love the Farmer's Market.
