Field Trip to the Public Market

Yesterday I took a trip to…

It was an absolutely beautiful day.

I strolled down produce filled lanes.

Admiring the bright colors.

Celebrating the low prices.

Comparing vendors.

Smiling because it seems like spring is finally here to stay.

Don’t you just want to lay down in this beautiful bed of herbs?

Oh no? That’s just me? Pshh, whatever.

I got really excited when I saw this:

Too bad I don’t have a need for sparkly scrunchies or drill bits. They had an abundance of those.

After picking up my produce, I checked out the shops and cafes surrounding the market.

Next time I come hungry.

Lots of character.

Unfortunately, most of the shops were closed. Like this one.

Don’t you worry. I’ll be back for the big show on Saturday to feed the cheese monster.

My other inner demon (“the bread beast”) caught a waft of fresh baked goods and led me to this lil’ beaut’.

“Ahhhhh!” (Angels singing)

I. Love. Fresh. Bread.

I’ll take one of each, please.

It was at this point that I decided it was time to go before I got out of control. (Next time I must bring a friend to hold my drooling-self back from the poor store clerks.)

My prizes:

All of this for only $5.50!!!

Later that day…

A BLT with the tomatoes I bought, plus some cantaloupe and kale chips on the side. (The Tempeh bacon was EXCELLENT, by the way!)

I topped my kale chips off with a little Nutritional Yeast. It’s a great source of B Vitamins for all you vegetarians out there. Plus, it tastes like CHEESE! (Oh my god, I need help.)

And for dinner…

Salmon burgers on the buns I purchased, a side of roasted summer squash tossed in a little Wegman’s Basting Oil, corn topped with parmesan cheese and Cholula Sauce, and cantaloupe.


Everything was so fresh, juicy, and full of flavor. I love buying local.

I encourage all of you to check out your hometown farmer’s market!
