Buy natural food at a farmers market

Posted Dec 18 2008 7:17pm
I like to purchase locally grown flowers that haven't been grown with pesticides.

I like to purchase locally grown flowers that haven' t been grown with pesticides.

Today I went to the farmers market. I love going to farmers markets. You get to visit with the farmers and see your friends and it is a pleasant walk for me.

Here is what I purchased.

  1.  Pretty flowers….no pesticides.
  2. Cheese, tenderloin beef tips, and sausage from a the same farmer
  3. Cookies and a caramel roll
  4. Beets, the farmer said I could cook the greens and gave me suggestions for the roots (beets). I have never liked beets that much, but I will try the greens and use the roots to add color to salads. She also suggested cooking them with vinegar, sugar and cornstarch.
  5. Swiss chard, we used to grow this when I was a kid and we ate it steamed every night; picked fresh from our own backyard garden.
  6. Eggs. I am actually going to let them sit a bit because I want to make potato salad and they peel better when they are old(er).

I am sorry I have posted as much lately. I am very busy. I have been trying to get other things done and I am using a timer when I am online…it went off two minutes ago.

Do any of you shop at farmers markets? Do you have some within walking distance…or an easy drive? What is your favorite thing to puchase at a farmers market?

PS. I lost two pounds last time I weighted in…better not eat another cookie today.
