First Farmers Market

 The farmers market opened yesterday! It has been rained out the past couple weeks, but here it is!

So fun and festive...vendors happily greeting loyal fans, customers oohing and ah-ing over fresh breads, organic soaps, Amish farm eggs and pickles.

Despite the endless fog!

Not for the short of cash, though! Only the bedding flowers were a bargain!

These are for a crock by my back door...

I sidestepped all the gorgeous asparagus, the kale and swiss chard, the few tiny first baby strawberries---and made a beeline to the Italian market guys from Brooklyn.

Had to stock up!
Ravioli, and Sicilian artichoke hearts..

cheese..fresh mozzarella,, and its oh so yummy cousin scamorza, the aged dried version.....

Then roses...palest cream with a hint of pink, like a seashell...

  and with my few dollars left I got my pansies and marigolds.

Next week I'll be more prepared, with a LOT more cash in hand.

  1. I love Farmer's Markets. None to be found here. Last year in Paris, one went up over night across from our hotel, and was gone by the next afternoon -- the variety of items to be purchased was amazing.

    Very cool to find a message in a bottle. Except the x-rated one, of course. Always someone out there who has to take something innocent and turn it into something raunchy. :/

    Have a great weekend. Tammy

  2. I think fog should be outlawed during farmer's markets! How I envy you the Brooklyn goodies! I don't even think we have a good Italian market here! How I envy you.
