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
- Tomatoes on the vine
- Green onions
- Thai basil
- The hugest beet I have EVER seen
- Sweet potatoes
- Red onions
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!
