Today was the first day in all of 2011 that I had the chance to visit my favorite farmer’s market under the freeway at 8th & X.  Between the inclement weather, lack of funds, and my health issues earlier this year, it just wasn’t possible for me to experience the splendor of this amazing display of local & regional produce.

But as they say, good things come to those who wait, and I was pleasantly rewarded with the fruits (and vegetables) of today’s visit.  From the first stalks of rhubarb to rows & rows of bright green asparagus bunches, the best of early spring was on full display.  Since everything was so lovely and I’ve been sorely lacking in fresh produce lately, I decided to take advantage of the five $5 bills I had in my wallet to do this month’s $25 Shopping Cart.  But not without taking a few photos first (as many as my camera’s low batteries would allow, that is!  Gotta remember to recharge next time…).

Here are just a few of the reasons why I <3 the farmer’s market so much.  Don’t forget to check back tomorrow evening this week for the full write-up on this season’s farmer’s market edition of the $25 Shopping Cart.  Enjoy!
