For $2.50 at Farmers' Market...
That's what I got for $2.50 at the Farmer's Market this past weekend. Ten picking cucumbers, four yellow onions, and three bell peppers (green, purple, and light yellow). I've never seen a purple one before. I'm excited to try it out. Hopefully tomorrow.
I've never been to a farmers' market before this year, and my first experience was way more expensive than I thought it'd be. Then, my friend who pens Little Corner of Mine, asked me if I wanted to join her visiting a local farmers' market a few weeks ago. During my first trip there, I came out with pickling cucumbers, squashes, and carrots. In fact, we both came out with similar produce. She couldn't make it this weekend, so I went with hubby. Again, I came home with another big bag of goodies. More picking cucumbers this trip. I've already sliced em all up and pickled em in a couple jars. Now I can't wait for breakfast tomorrow morning with tri-colored bell pepper omelette.
Anyone had good or bad experiences at their local farmer's market? I'm a newbie and if anyone has any good tips or things to look out for at the market, please do share, I would love to know. =)
