Farmer’s Market

July 17, 2010

I stopped by one of my local farmer’s markets  a few days ago in hopes of buying some really great lettuce, and fresh green peas and spinach and zucchini.  Creamie and I came prepared with stroller and water and reusable shopping bags and sunscreen and snacks and everything.   I was really hoping to find something kind of like this.

But I was disappointed.  This particular Farmers Market was mostly markety stuff (hair accessories, baby paraphernalia, jewelry and scented candles) and not much farmer.  Which is fine if you are looking for hair accessories or baby paraphernalia or jewelry or scented candles.  But it’s not so great when you want baby spinach and fresh picked brocolli.  Although I did find some local raw honey at one stand which is unbelievably delicious.  And there were some Spanish foreign exchange students who were selling zucchini and squash and beets.  They were so excited for me to buy something, well it was probably more a matter of being excited for anyone to buy something.  I bought a few zucchini’s and some beets, but mostly because I felt sorry for them.  The students, not the vegetables.   Here’s hoping that next week’s not quite as local, but probably better, farmers market will have a few more veggies.  And more farmers.  I am craving fresh produce.  I hope your weekend is turning out delicious!

    so… we may or may not have zucchini and squash (and soon- green beans and tomatoes and carrots and onions) coming out of our eyeballs right now, with no sign of slowing anytime soon. want some?

    We have had the same problem. We can’t find a good farmers market to save our life.

    Yeah, if it wasn’t the farmers market down my way, don’t bother trying it either, yet… the produce really doesn’t show up until at least august, it seems like. Just overpriced crafts that you can make cuter, cheaper. :/

    so i’m going to have to totally agree with you on this… when we still lived in st. george we went to the “farmer’s market” one saturday morning and i was disappointed. hardly any fresh fruits and veggies and way too many cutsie little crafty thingies. don’t get me wrong – i LOOOOOOVE cutsie crafty thingies as much as the next girl, but i was looking for produce- not aprons or hair bows
