Our mid week market provided these yummy finds: Watermelon, peaches, nectarines (picked 30 minutes before we bought them) and plums, plus one cucumber. Much of this is already gone - hurry up Saturday :o)
We went to the market on Saturday and ate everything before I thought to get a picture, lol. We bought blueberries (these were gone almost before we got to the car, lol), squash, cucumbers, tomatoes, 8 ears of sweet corn, a jar of plum jam, a few peaches, a cantaloupe and some home baked pita bread. We spent less than $20 and although it was a little more than we would pay at the grocery store, the taste is so superior to what is available at the supermarket that it is worth a few cents more. Plus I love knowing that we are supporting the local farmers in our community. When we buy from the grocery store, mere pennies per dollar spent on food goes to the farmer. When we buy directly from the farmer, the whole dollar goes to the farmer.
