Hats and jackets were the order of the day on Saturday. The damp and cold did not deter the shoppers (or the vendors) at the farmers market.
We laugh in the face of cold and rain when there are things like peonies and beets to be had. Not just any beets. We are talking red, purple, and golden beets. A beet trifecta.
I might have gone overboard this week. I brought home kale, chard, golden beets, green leaf lettuce, strawberries, and the sweetest head of broccoli you've ever seen in your life.
As soon as I put it all away I poured a cup of coffee, got out my vegetable bible, and the planning began. This is one of my favorite things about the farmers market. Thinking of new ways to incorporate fresh local produce into our eating habits.
I have no idea if it's really "healthier" to eat locally grown foods, but in my mind it is.
