Woohoo - Farmers Market Saturday!

The Farmers Market was lovely today - more musicians than usual, lower prices than during the summer, and a perfect blend of summer and autumn produce! There were lots of berries and lots of pumpkins! I spent all of the $21 I had on me, and came away with a big bag of yummies :)

Here's one of the vendors where I had planned to get chard, but they were out of it by the time I came back. The only downside to walking through the whole market before buying anything!

Roasting peppers!

I bought a few heirloom tomatoes and some corn here

So pretty!

You know it's organic when you find critters!

I bought some chanterelles and nettles here


Here's the goods!
1 giant zucchini
4 heirloom tomatoes
4 multicolored beets
2 ears of corn
1 lb. of seedless grapes
3 bell peppers
1/6 lb. of chanterelles
a big bag of nettles
1 loaf of Dave's Killer Bread - Nuts and Grains
1 chocolate panini

Cookie just had to investigate - kittens are so curious!

This loot is officially Cookie approved!

P.S. I've never even tasted let alone cooked with nettles... it was a total impulse buy! There's a recipe for nettle potato soup with the bag, but do any of you have favorite recipes or ways to prepare them? Thanks!!!

ms. Cookie is the cutest! gotta love a curious kitty who like veggies! i laughed when you said "you know it's organic when you find critters" - i find them all the time, especially in my broccoli - gross!

I don't even know what nettles are! I feel kinda stupid! I should know that...

I love how there's a cat right there next to your grocery.
