A Trip to the Farmers’ Market

This past Saturday morning Patrick and I woke up extra early to drop my car off to the dealership to get my seat belt finally replaced after driving around for a week without a working seat belt.  (It recently locked up in the retracted position.  They didn’t have any rental cars available either so I had to wait for them to order and receive the part.  How dangerous, right!? Don’t worry, I submitted a report to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to try and get the part recalled!)

Anyway, we were out and about and passed by a farmers market (that I am honestly guilty of knowing it occurs every Saturday morning but I never make an effort to get there).  Well, I sure am glad I did because I picked up some beauties!  I’m so excited to cook with my new bounty of fresh produce bought straight from the source, and I didn’t have to wait in a checkout line to pay for them.  You can’t get much more fresh, healthy, and supportive of your local environment than this!

Is it me or is this bowl just gorgeous!?

Is it me or is this bowl just gorgeous!?  I love the idea of fresh food!

Just beautiful, right!  Okay, so let me give you the lowdown and prices:

Plum Tomatoes: $2.00 for all of them!

Organic Cucumber: $1.00

Bunch of Kale: $1.00

Sweet Onions: $1.00/pound

Red Onions: $1.50/pound

Spaghetti Squash: $4.00

Onion Bread: $3.50

The loaf of onion bread smelled amazing the whole way home!  In addition to tasting the onion loaf, I am most excited to use the spaghetti squash.  I’ve heard so much about it being a good way to substitute pasta so I cannot wait to try it!

I’ll definitely have some recipes posted soon with all of these goodies being put to use.  Stay tuned!
