So we woke up bright and early, pulled out some cash, and got there around 7, while the weather was still cool and before the crowd got too big. It was a beautiful, sunny morning, except a little windy. We strolled back and forth to all the tents a few times, scoping out the goods to find the best deals. Here are just a few of the wonderful sights:
So what did we come home with, you ask?
Head of lettuce - $2
Cinnamon roll for breakfast - $1.25
Bag of granola (yummy on yogurt) - $1.50
Ginormous English cucumber - $2
Slicing tomatoes - $1.50
Huge bundle of spinach - $1 (the deal of the day by far!)
Not bad for under $10! Plus, I feel good about doing our little part to support the local growers. I think we're going to make it a point to come back more regularly. Next time I'd like to get some flowers to add some color to our landscaping.
Is there a farmers market where you live? What are the goods you can't leave without?
