With my Saturday mornings no longer being occupied by my job, we’ve been able to enjoy some real treats from the local farmers’ market. The farmers’ market season runs from June through September in a beautiful park about 25 minutes from home. Living in a rural area, the size of the market is small, but I’m a believer in quality over quantity. Not only is it nice to peruse around with the family and enjoy the park, there is always a live band in the small pavilion for entertainment.
Here is a shot of the goodies we brought home this week:
This week we brought home a Chevre spread and Feta goat cheese from a local farmer, lots of tomatoes, habaneros, jalapenos, garlic, and figs. We also grabbed some home made chicken tamales for dinner and pastries from a local coffee shop vendor for breakfast. Not only was everything delicious we were able to support local families and spend less than our favorite grocery store charges.
