Another good Saturday at the Farmers Market

Well. It’s supposed to soar up into the mid-80’s today, but right now it’s cold – in the mid-50’s. And the market is just close enough to the river to always have a good wind. It was a quick run through today, just lettuces and strawberries and eggs. Lots of strawberries, as I plan to make strawberry ice cream and strawberry sauce for good-bye party for the graduate assistants who are ending their time with us this week. Oh – and my once-a month treat of a chocolate croissant. I did get some regular loose leaf lettuce, but I also got a couple of the little Tom Thumb lettuces. They’re so cute!

One is enough for a salad. I was hoping for peonies, but the vendor says they have just budded…maybe in a week or two. That also tells me its been a cool spring – they are very late! But the strawberries will keep me happy for a while
