Farmer's Market Goodies

Farmer's Market season is almost over so I made sure to get down there this morning--plus I owed a vendor for a jar of honey he gave me on trust last week when I ran out of cash!

Today's haul:

•another, bigger jar of honey
•bag of Golden Delicious apples picked this morning and still nice and crisp
•the season's last okra, for frying
•beautiful large nameless winter squash from the Vietnamese lady I love

Support your local growers!

I agree that Farmers' Markets can be wonderful sources of fresh produce. When I lived in the Midwest, I could load up my trunk with fresh, colorful produce for about $20.

However! We moved to the Southwest. The Farmers' Market here is trendy ... organic ... spendy. For example, fresh spinach is $2 for a QUARTER POUND. Yes, $8/lb.

I feel taken-advantage-of paying those prices. Add in the incovenience, and I studiously avoid our local Farmer's Market.
