Farmers Market Sweep!

The other night we decided to visit a local farmer's market and make dinner with the things we found there.
It was lovely and warm and smelled of ten different things. Warm Naan, roasting rosemary chicken, and home-grown corn on the cob .....

His pumpkin flatbread was delicious.

We bought an asiago cheese baguette along with his organic Artichoke and Walnut Cheese spread. Absolutely divine.

Beautiful orchids - someday I'll find out how to keep these alive for more than two days. Until then, I'm keeping my grubby little hands off them.

One great thing about living in such a temperate climate is that you can get most fruits and veggies all year long. Like strawberries. Or artichokes (I could live off of those...).

It was an excellent experiment, try it! Go on! Find you local farmers market and dig in!

(See my strategy? Insert pictures to keep the paragraphs apart! Genius! Can't last forever! Am still trying to figure it out!)

Love to see the Cambrian market sign (and read the words too hahaha) and little O. You make me laugh talking about "his" bread and "his" this and "his" that. tee hee

I would kill for strawberries to taste good all year long! Our farmers markets are all on Sundays here. Bummer.

I debated last night with Bridge and Caleb about that sign. "I can't put this pic up!" I was saying, "Look what it says!". But they both said no one would notice. I didn't believe them, but hey! I enjoyed it. :) I love when people forget to proofread....

Well, so what did you make for dinner with your findings?
Love those farmers markets.

oh, and if you figure out how to put spaces between your paragraphs, please pass that knowledge over my way.

Wonderful idea ... how was the dinner?

Minor details! :) Sorry, we bought the rosemary chicken, the bread and Artichoke dip, and corn on the cob that we grilled. Which, bytheway, is the best way to eat corn on the cob. We also bought a few jumbo artichokes and ate them for dinner the next day. :) Mmm.....I'm getting hungry again.
