Finally! My first real trip to the market. Technically it’s my second, but I was going out of town after the first trip so I wasn’t able to buy as much produce as I would have liked. This week, however, I had no such constraints and I happily spent every penny of my market budget. Now I just get to figure out what to do with all of it! But that probably won’t happen until tomorrow.
This is a very green week! I picked up cucumbers, zucchini, green beans, teensy spring onions, and some Bermuda onions which are apparently a sweet variety. Art was also lured by the call of blueberries, so we picked up a pint of gorgeous bluebs.
Tomatoes are starting to come to the market and you all know how their siren call affects me. The gorgeous red tomatoes are “seconds” but they look perfect to me. I also picked up a bunch of yellow tomatoes, Yukon gold potatoes, two heads of broccoli, two club size zucchini which will be nice for the grill, and three little loaves of cinnamon bread made by the ever awesome Sue Herbert. I think that gazpacho might be in my future.
It was a nice day at the market and I’m happy that I’m in town for the next month. Next week the market is having a big 4th of July bash which should be fun times! Life is good and local produce helps it to be even more so.
