Thanks for the reminder. I need to get back to the Farmer's market here. Earlier in the season, their selections were a bit skimpy.

Hi, All!

I haven't hit the farmer's market yet -- just back in town a few days -- but I did hit Trader Joe's twice, late last week.

Persian cucumbers, unwaxed. Organic grapes. Lemons, limes, oranges. Hmmm...I bought a bunch more.

I also picked up my first produce co-op share of the season. I had to stop while I was traveling.

I would have loved to go to Stonyfield Yogurt plant. They have such good yogurt.

All I did was go to my local farmer's market and pick up some fun things to eat.

Hi All:

I just wanted to share my little adventure this weekend. My husband and I used our state agriculture listing of area farmstands to find some new places for fresh produce.

In the process, we met some awesome people who keep those farms running, bought some amazing fruits and vegetables and saw some gorgeous areas that are a little off the beaten path (that's saying something here in NH, where two feet from the main road is off the beaten path! lol)

We even found a place where you can pick your own vegetables from their small patches! Such a treat to have right-off-the-vine cucumbers and tomatoes for my salad. We also picked blueberries, rhubarb and fresh herbs at that farm.

At the next stop, we bought such a variety of vegetables that the woman commented that she thought we had some of everything they carry! It's tough to resist the beautiful bounty when it's set before me. At that stop we bought beets, squash, onions, garlic, corn, swiss chard and the first apples of the season.

We also found a stand nearby who sells free-range chicken eggs and fresh peaches. They had a few Chinese eggplant I snatched up, too.

Then, we saw signs pointing us to Stonyfield Farm Yogurt, so we decided to find out where my absolutely favorite plain yogurt is made. The plant is closed to touring because of expansion construction, but we were able to see a neat video of how it all started and had yummy samples of some of the products I don't usually buy. I was able to purchase the large container of plain yogurt for a lot less than I pay in the store and found a reasonably-priced aluminum water bottle (dying for one, but hated to pay $20!) so I can now eliminate drinking from plastic.

All of this glorious, organic, fresh food cost a fraction of what it would in the grocery store - that is if you could even find it! And, we feel great supporting our local farmers who work so hard to provide these whole foods for their communities.

So, last night I put together a sort of ratatouille with my array of vegetables and herbs, added some chick peas and served it over brown rice pasta. Nothing has ever tasted as delicious! emoticon

I hope you can find some neat places like this near you. Your government web site may be a good place to start.

Healthy eating!
Cat
