Farmer's Market Report - Sept 13th



A nice farmer's market trip today - didn't pick up too much, though because I've got plenty on hand right now, but did get:
  • A huge head of Bok choy
  • Some muscadine grapes- I'll buy these every week until they are gone.
  • Soap from the soap lady and her stain stick, which is comes highly recommended.
  • And a large jar of local honey

While we were there, we (my Dear Neighbor and I) watched a weaving demonstration. Each week the farmer's market organizers bring in local craftsmen to exhibit their work. They also have various local chefs who come give cooking demonstrations and often live music. So, although a damp day, it was a nice one!

How was your farmer's market this week? Submit your post below (a direct link to your post, not your main page). Don't forget, to add a mention and a link back to the Farmer's Market Report in your post. And if this is your first time, be sure to read the guidelines.

I just found you via a comment you left on Tara's Books and Cooks blog. I love the idea of promoting Farmer's Markets everywhere. I have a garden, but I supplement it with weekly or every other week visits to the Farmer's Market. Hope I did the link thing right. I went back to my post of a few days ago, and added your blog address and the photo.

I found your site on Nan's this morning. I have a garden and go to Farmer's Market about every other week. Cooking for one but love the different varities that I find at the market. Love your site and recipes.

Hi: Thanks for stopping by! I am excited to try the eggplant. I'm thinking some sort of pairing with the heirloom tomatoes. I'll follow up and let you know.

Hi! Thanks for the comment and heads-up about this site. I submitted my Alberta farmers' market link; I hope I did it right.

Hello Kerry, & thanks for visiting my blog. We had some awesome little carrots, orange & yellow both, at our Farmer's Market. I also got grape tomatoes (yellow!), anaheim chilies, cucumbers, beets, pattypan squash, raspberries, blueberries, and peaches. Yum!

Thanks for the invite! I'm glad there's others who may have gotten confused about muskmelons and cantaloupes. I'll try to come back and post reports more often!

Thanks for the invite to link to your site. I love the blog and I'm still trying to read through it all.

I thoroughly enjoyed my first trip to our local farmer's market and plan on making it there more often!

Oh, I like this idea. I'll have to do it next weekend (we hit the market on Sundays here).

This is such a cool idea. I will totally participate in this event next time around. I need to read the guidelines so I know I follow all of the rules. I'm going to subscribe to your feed right now so I don't miss the chance!

Thanks for letting me know.

Hi! Thanks for stopping by to let me know about your site. I love farmers' markets, too - we've got a lot of them in Cincinnati, so summer weekend produce shopping is a blast!
