I ♥ the Farmer’s Market

Pin It

Don’t you just love it when you’re going through some laundry or some old purses and you find money you completely forgot you had? That happened to me this weekend, and I knew exactly how to spend this minor windfall: save myself from a pathetically paltry bare bones week and hit the farmer’s market under the freeway on 8th & W.

It was in the cards that I should head there this weekend. It’s not often that we get a Sunday off from choir, so between the unexpected day off and the gorgeous, warm weather, and an extra $25 in my hands, it was next to impossible for me to stay home. As usual, I scored big once I got there and did my preliminary rounds:

  • Swiss chard
  • Spinach
  • Tomatoes on the vine
  • Cherries
  • Strawberries
  • Mushrooms
  • Green onions
  • Thai basil
  • The hugest beet I have EVER seen
  • Chives
  • Sweet potatoes
  • Red onions
  • Apricots

I’ve probably forgotten a couple of items, but let’s just say that this unofficial Farmer’s Market edition of the $25 Shopping Cart was a true success! As always, everything was so beautiful I didn’t know where to turn & look. Here are some of my favorite shots from this Sunday. Enjoy!
