This morning I woke up at 6:30am and the first thought that popped into my head was Farmer's market is open today!!! Then I went back to sleep for another hour, because c'mon it's Saturday, there's no way I'm getting myself out of bed at 6:30. I was out the door by 9am though, enjoying a brisk walk in brisk weather. It was lovely to be back amongst the stalls, eyeing produce and prices, running back and forth to see which stall had better looking veggies or fruits. Since it's not quite yet spring weather, the vegetables were mostly leeks and chards and kales and lettuces. So I will still have to go to Whole Foods later to diversify. P.S. I went to lab directly afterward and ate an apple so there were originally 3 apples. P.P.S. After eating my apple I realized why I stopped buying apples while the markets were closed. Grocery store apples just do not compare.
3 fuji apples and 3 red d'anjou pears: $6.10
Asian salad mix and a bunch of kale: $5
Venison pate: $5
