So yesterday we finally made it down to the farmers market downtown. It was a long awaited trip, and one that didn't disappoint!
I haven't been to any farmers markets here in Arizona, and although it isn't big by typical standards, it was fab! It had that arty, earthy feel to it that made me feel right at home. Everyone was friendly, and chatty, and the produce was amazing. There were also lots of artists selling their stuff, and had I not had a strict budget, I could have gone a bit mad. My favorite of all was this lady who is an artist and horticulturalist. She had an amazing portfolio of the gardens she has designed. Didn't get any pics of her stall unfortunately as the natives were getting restless, but I got lots more of others.
We didn't stay long, but this is what we came away with. I am planning a big dinner later to use some of this lovely stuff.
We also bought two zucchini plants,a cucumber plant, and a little basil plant so that we can have a bit more of a veggie patch than originally planned this summer. I am looking forward to planting them later!
