I’m headed to the farmer’s market tomorrow and I’m hoping to find a few things.
Side note: must remember cash (small bills…the farmers hate making change!), and my market tote.

I want flowers. I love fresh flowers and sometimes you can find pretty bouquets and great prices. I would love some tulips or maybe some daffodils. Really anything to put on my kitchen counter in one of my Fiestaware vases will do.
I want asparagus. Tyler doesn’t love this veggie, but I sure do! And I want to bring some home for dinner this week. I love it roasted with some garlic and lemon juice.
I would love to find some beets. I haven’t had any beets since last year when I got some in my CSA box (which I’m doing again this year!) and I would love to roast some again soon.
I would also love to find some fresh herbs, though it may be a little early in the season for that. I’m not sure. I would love some chives or rosemary….but anything fresh would be nice. I’m so tired of dried herbs. I’m glad winter is gone and growing season is here!
And lastly, I want to find something new to try. That’s my favorite part of going to the farmer’s market. I love to find something new, ask the farmer what to do with it…and come home and try it. I’ve tried purple potatoes, snake beans (not really a fan of those), purple cauliflower, baby eggplant, some different peppers, banana jam….and I wonder what I will find next.
So I hope to fill you in on my bounty next week!
What are you doing this weekend? Any fun plans?
