Farmers Mkt Goodies

These are some of my good buys from my Saturday morning trip to the Farmers Market. I LOVE LOVE LOVE going, just being there makes me happy! It was a HOT and Humid morning with lots of people buzzing around. It felt like summer should and coming home with these delicious, fresh foods made a great start to my weekend.
  • Blueberries
    • In whole grain pancakes
    • In greek yogurt
    • Just to snack on
    • In Oatmeal
    • In a fresh fruit salad (with those peaches)
    • Warmed up with some Agave in a pan on the stove and served over something cold and sweet
    • Freeze them in baggies to use later (we'll eat these up in no time)P
  • Pickled Beets
    • The lady that sells these is a sweet older lady who has been working on the farm and canning for decades. Next time I go I will get a picture with her. I love seeing her and ALWAYS buy beets and more from her. 
    • Eat 'em right out of the jar
    • Mix in a cold bean salad 
    • Slice on your favorite salad
  • Sweet Peppers
  • Zucchini
  • Carrots
  • Swiss Chard
    • This wonderful green leafy vegetable is a super green leafy veggie. I'll post some ways to use swiss chard later. Like spinach, this super nutrient packed veggie is not to be ignored.
  • Fresh Yellow and Green Beans
 Then there's The Pickle Guy (order online too)!!! The owner wasn't there when I went but on my next visit I'll get a picture with him!

 Muffalata and crunchy, garlic pickles! Yummy treats!
