First Visit to the Farmers Market

Thursday, March 27, 2014

OK, so I've been here almost 5 years and have never visited the local farmers market. emoticon

Better late than never. Kale, turnips, beets and fresh eggs and I got some surprises like the turnip tops. They are edible and quite nutritious from what I read. Free food basically. Likewise with the beet tops. Super cut them off to save space, plus they get in the way. But the farmers have no use for them and so they come with it. Nice.

I set out to eat more purple food about 9 months ago but haven't been as successful as I'd like to be. But with the addition of beets, I think I may have found the magic. Beets are just wonderful. My new discovery.

Now they've got a regular customer out of me.

    Woubbie is right for me too, she is close! We get eggs and garlic scapes in May if we are lucky some hydroponic greens. We have a winter market here but it is meat and eggs and stuff I don't eat (homemde canned and baked goods). I get my meat from a vendor that delivers and my eggs from my chiropractor/friend who I KNOW raises them the best way possible and that is reflected in the taste! They are the best I will have. I firmly believe that. I have had many other farm/organic eggs too, they are also WAYY better than store eggs. But I wait for her to supply me if I can since nothing else compares for me. I am truly an egg SNOB now!! LOL

    We have quite a few more weeks to go around here. First week of May, maybe, and all we'll get is garlic scapes.
