Wednesday was not my day. Everywhere I went and everything I did simply did not work out, including my shopping. This is the first farmer’s market I tried after picking Cooper up from school – The Community Farmers Market at Health Park East off SR 70:
Yesterday, Ubermommy told me I could have taken a right at the light and seen signs for King Farm. Too bad because they were my favorite vendor at that market anyway, but at least now I know for next time or I can order ahead…more on that in a future post.
Here’s my attempt at Farmers Market Two - The Phillippi Farmhouse Market:
I’ve obviously been relying way too much on Jessica’s Organic Farm lately because I didn’t know they changed their hours.
I had planned to make a fresh tomato sauce for my Italian feast tonight. Oh well, Paul Newman to the rescue!
Paul Newman wasn’t the only star. I had oregano in the garden, an onion on the counter, and to solve my immediate problem of dinner that night – asparagus from Sweetbay. Not in season but also not on the Dirty Dozen list, asparagus is Number Seven on the the Clean Fifteen and onions are Number One. Those are two great non-organics in a pinch. Some days that’s the best I can do, and today is already looking up. I passed a Friday morning farmers market on my way to work. I can’t make it today, but I’ll try to get you a report next Friday.
