Know what I love?
(besides chocolate, crack oranges, reality tv, black capri yoga pants, cookies, green tea, IKEA, New Seasons, and the 86 million other things I constantly declare love for. I’m a loving person)
My farmers market.
It sells things like these crazy mushrooms
I wrote about it a few months back. And at that point, it was a decent hike.
Now, it’s a nice little walk. Somewhere around a third of a mile from our house.
Wanna know what’s extra cool?? It’s year round. Every other week for the winter (starting after Thanksgiving). But still, year round. Pretty great.
We had fun this week because there were so many random things
These crazy things looked like they’re related to cauliflower.
And speaking of cauliflower….
Purple! We totally got some. How could you resist?
I was a little bummed, because I saw on the market’s website that there would be chickpeas, and was all ready to spend way too much to get some.
But when we got there (an hour after the market had opened) they were already sold out. 😦
The woman told me that they’ll have the chickpeas again next week, and that the type they sell are smaller than normal ones.
Chickpeas + tiny food + farmers market = so many things I love.
That same farm was selling these crazy squash by the slice
Which is pretty fantastic-you don’t have to commit to 20 pounds of squash that way.
Do you do farmers markets?
I totally shop them for amusing things (see, all the pictures above)… Because I can’t really afford them for all my food. I want the stuff I splurge on to be either amazing (see the peach sellers in the summer), or unique.
