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. =)


  1. That's what I thought too! Woulda got ourselves some melons for $1 each, but I was too late. A man just bought off the rest that was in the box right before me. Otherwise it's gonna be super melon smoothie week over here. lol
