I love the farmer’s market for all it’s color, fresh air, community, flowers and produce. But more than that I believe in buying local, and knowing who grows your food. This is zero waste, sustainable eating at its lowest carbon foot print.
We bought that box of heirloom tomato “seconds” above for $25; we cut them up and froze them for the winter. We also bought 48 ears of corn to make Sweet Corn Chowder to freeze. We also made the Ultra Ratatouille I posted the other day, and froze a lot of that.
The still life arrangements on our picnic table, together with the back seat of the our car on a rainy Saturday morning, show what we bought from the farmer’s market. There is love and beauty in every bite.
Enjoy the vibrance of our farmer’s market scene in these photos, and I recommend frequenting the one nearest you!
