We've been missing all the fresh vegetables that are available from gardens this time of year, and while Whole Foods has some good options, I don't always like paying the prices. So, I looked up a local Farmer's Market. According to the website, "Open year round, the Market hosts more than 15 local farmers and producers in the winter and more than 40 the rest of the year. Vendors offer fresh locally grown fruits and vegetables, cheeses, meats, baked goods, plants, and wine. "
Better yet, the market was less than 2 miles from our apartment. So, we braved the humidity, and went to the Farmer's Market this morning. The choices were amazing! Every booth had something different. We got the ingredients for Ratatouille, some bacon to go with the fresh green beans, homemade hummus, beets and some yummy looking bread. Now that we've seen the selection, I'll definitely be planning to shop there often. The homemade pastas, breads and local meats all looked like great options. Along with the flowers, soaps, and handmade dog treats, there was lots of stuff for people to eat like crepes, gelato, soup and crabcakes.
