Weekend Farmer's Market Finds
A few weeks ago, I was delighted to find a pastured chicken farmer at the Farmer's Market. I placed an order with her that day and we were able to pick up our first chickens this past Saturday. These were game hens (under 2 lbs each). We will be picking up heritage fryers next weekend. I cannot wait! This week at the market we also found sweet corn, plums, blackberries, blueberries, cherry tomatoes, spring mix lettuce, swiss chard, a purple bell pepper (it has a nice spicy taste), two dozen eggs and (I couldn't help it) a sunflower bouquet.
Between the market we attended this weekend and another in a nearby town, we now have access to farmer's markets on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday. Ahhhhh . . . summer :)
