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 :)

You really are blessed with great Farmer's Markets in your area! Ours just opened last weekend and I couldn't make it because I was sick. I am looking forward to going this week though and am hoping to find some ripe stone fruit.

P.S. By strawberries are almost ready to start picking. Yay!

That was my strawberries, not by strawberries. I shouldn't type after taking NyQuil. ;-)
