Beets from the Farmers Market! Sooooo good.
Aren't these gorgeous? Everything about them screams earthy perfection. Dirt covered and all.
Enough about the beets. We made it to the NC Farmers Market this weekend for the first time in, well, forever. I don't know why I avoid the Farmers Market in the colder months, seems easier to just order the CSA box. But as soon as warmer weather arrives, this is definitely one of my favorite destinations. So much to choose from, so much eye candy!
We filled our bags to the brim. Spring onions, tomatoes, broccoli, strawberries, peas...
Check out these potatoes...
They made us giggle (Farmer's Market humor).
We wandered over to the flowers. John and I apparently have different methods in choosing our spring plants. I was all set to pick out bunches of beauties to plant in our yard and garden and display on our front porch. John suggested we make a plan first. Sigh. (Although it means we will be back this weekend!)
Rounded the trip out with a visit to the pork farmer. That's him... the actual farmer. (We picked up a package of fresh bratwurst, which I proceeded to make, Wisconsin style, and they were fabulous.)
All in all, a great visit. Looking forward to our return this weekend.
Do you have a local Farmer's Markets? Any favorite must haves during your visits?
