I hit the Farmers Market with 20 bucks!! See what treasures I found:)
I went to our local farmers market this morning since I had to be up SO early (9) hehe to be at the post office.
Iv been wanting to go all year and this is the first morning I have actually gone! I am sooo BAD! So here are the treasures I found with my 20 bucks:)
3 Eggplants to
go with my measly 1 that I grew in my garden. Can you say Eggplant Parmesan?;) The lady said they had trouble with eggplant too this year so that makes me feel better:)
4 garlic heads I am going to break apart and plant in my garden so I can have fresh garlic next year:) I was so excited to see them! Seems I have missed the ideal planting time so there aren't any in the seed stores.
A jar of chow chow (pickled vegetable straight from the garden) mmmm I've been wanting some soooo bad! This one has cabbage, onions and peppers I think. He said its a little spicy:)
Some homemade cereal candy with PECANS!! mmmm Can't wait to dig into that one!!
A HUGE loaf of pumpkin bread made with fresh, from the garden, pumpkin. It smelled so
awesome on the way home I ate a slice for breakfast:) it was deli-sh!!
Pint of Local honey....he didn't have any comb:( But he did have the cutest little bees
wax candles in all different shapes. I loved the little pine cones! I almost got some lip-balm but I ran out of moolah..it was only 2 bucks. Should have got some change from the truck...darn it!!
And last but not least a Viola for the garden:) I planted a whole bunch from seed but none have blooms yet so I got this little guy. He is so cute! Purple and orange!! My fav colors:)
It was really great... I am thinking of bringing my jewelry there one morning in november....maybe sell a few things. Its really small but your guaranteed to have good conversation and way too many REALLY awesome things to eat:)
