farmers markets

I was happy to discover 2 local farmers markets near our new home, and I made sure to check both of them out this week.

Tuesday, the market was held on a cool old-timey street that had an antique store packed with goodies and an art gallery next door. There were even live musicians creating a fun atmosphere while you browsed the fabulous local produce. I picked up some beans (they're fuzzy like peaches), a lemon cucumber, a couple peaches, and a variety of tomatoes.

Yesterday's market was set in a park and had a larger variety of both produce and vendors. I sampled an apricot (though I forget what kind), some yummy homemade bread, honey butter, and raspberry preserves. We walked away with a cross-bred melon that smelled soooo good and an expensive yet beautiful mini peach pie. Of course, we picked up a carton of vanilla ice cream on the way home.

purple peppers

I can't wait to try it all!


  1. I love farmers' markets! Those look fun!

  2. What did the purple pepper taste like? None of us here had ever seen one. (Vera, Amy and I)

  3. I didn't purchase any peppers because we already had a few at home. I'll let you know when I do though. =)

  4. Great pictures! I love the roosters.
