Our city has a new farmer's market. I've driven by it for a couple months now and heard from my brother-in-law how great the samples are and so this past Friday Jenna and I went to see what it was all about.
It was pretty small, but since we were on a time crunch it wasn't a problem. We first tried a bunch of samples...kettle corn, tamales, coffee, and humus. Then we walked down the next row and there were beautiful fruits and veggies...and some more samples--Yum!
I love all of the "mutts" of the fruit world found at the market.
I got to try this one called the aprium. It is a mix between an apricot and a plum. It was really good.
I also tried some cherries which were incredible. They changed my perspective on cherries altogether. Previously I wouldn't touch a cherry, but instead I bought a bucket of them! Of course I didn't even take a picture of any of the berries since I was too busy sampling, but they were great. The strawberries were so sweet and beautiful. I was rather annoyed that I had some small, not as tasty ones in my fridge at home...next week.
Now for the veggies...
...they were amazing looking as well! I was tempted to get some bisteck tomatoes, but again I had a bunch of tomatoes at home already.
This celery was out of control ... I think it was on steroids!
There wasn't a ton to see, but the quality of the selection there was really great. I'll be excited to go back next week and get some fresh fruits and veggies as I won't be stocking up my fridge on Thursday this week. Lesson learned.
