Sunday Shopping at the Farmers Market and Nature's Basket
Posted Nov 21 2010 12:00am
The kind folks at The Farmer's Market tempted me there today for a visit with promises of organic avocados...I've been meaning to get them forever, but cant seem to find them anywhere. So, off I went to Wind Chimes Playschool, Bandra, to buy 2 kilos worth. Avocado season is over, said the farmers at the market. So I was a bit annoyed having travelled more than 30 kilometers just for the avocados! Determined not to let this little setback ruin my Sunday, here's what else I bought at the farmers market, and just ahead of the road at Nature's Basket. All organic and locally sourced produce at the farmers market - Can't wait to dig into my carrot salad with tahini dressing and sunflower seeds!!!
Gotta say, I LOVE Nature's Basket!!! Feel like a kid in candyland. - Liquorice, olives, sunflower seeds (been searching for ages since I finished my last pack from California), peppers, and a wild card - Korean, not Japanese Miso. Now that I have it, I'll look for recipes to build around the ingredients I have - Like this miso soup recipe .
Sunflower seeds, green and black olives, jalepeno peppers, Korean miso, liquorice candy
Very excited about the miso!!!
They even handed me a leaflet of recipes to make with my asparagus
Organic carrots are butt ugly! ;)
Dont they look oh so pretty?
