But I did make it 2/3 of the time, and I loved every moment. Can’t wait for the market to reopen in the spring. 5 years ago
Missed another week due to an appointment this morning. Hope I can make it at least one more time before they close down. 5 years ago
The promise of fresh pears and brussels sprouts is not enough to inspire me to drive in the snow. Even in snow that isn’t sticking.
Skipped it. 22/33 5 years ago
- Brussels sprouts
- broccoli (although I think it was grown indoors or something because no one else has had broccoli in more than a month)
- more of the best apple cider ever, which I brought up to my family’s late Thanksgiving today and was a hit
- a nice hot bowl of lentil soup for lunch 5 years ago
I had to go to the farmer’s market alone this time. And it was pouring. But I did it, and got all the stuff we needed to have a dinner party on Sunday. I want to go to the Wednesday one this week too and find something to take up home for Thanksgiving. Not sure if that will work out though, I might have the boyfriend go on my behalf.

I got brussels sprouts, apples, squash and lunch. All organic. Boyfriend also got a sugar pumpkin so we can make a pie! 5 years ago
We had a lovely time at the farmer’s market yesterday. I got brussels sprouts (yay) and pears and fresh apple cider and some local honey which I’m going to force myself to eat in effort of reducing my hay-fever.
My favorite moment of the day was when I had to take a call from my mother and I was standing there in the big crowd of people only 1/2 listening to her with more of my attention on the boyfriend. He looked so cute are serious and so himself shopping for onions. 5 years ago
Apples and pears and potatoes and spinach and squashes. Beautiful morning. 18/28 5 years ago
Missed this weekend. Torential rains on Saturday and poor planning on Sunday.
On the plus side, my step-mom gave me a big bag of apples that she said were from a local fundraiser and so I can at least feel OK about the origins of my fruit for the week. Even if I have to get my veggies from the supermarket. 5 years ago
And I was able to make it today. I had to settle for the small market this weekend, but its better than none and so much less crowded. 16/25 5 years ago
I went today.
I got more veggies than I can imagine myself eating. I was all thrown off by not having boyfriend there with me. Usually we buy food for making a big dinner one night on the weekend, but he’s out of town, so I guess I’ll have to make a big dinner by myself. Oh boy. 5 years ago
Missed this weekend. I have very good excuses though! I went out of town at the last minute. Never the less, if I’d really tried I could have gotten to the Thursday market.
I didn’t go the weekend prior either since I on vacation. I’m not going to count that weekend against myself.
14/23- I’m still above 50% but just barely. Will not miss next weekend. 5 years ago
I was out of town. But I did just get some tomatoes from a co-worker’s garden. That counts, right? No, probably not. 14/21. 5 years ago
I made it to a weekday FM yesterday. I hope to still go to the big one on Saturday as well.
Plums and Green beans.

I have plans for both mornings this weekend, and i”m not able to leave the office in time for a weekday farmer’s market this week. I was (am) all bummed about it. And then last night the boyfriend showed up to our date with a bag of farmer’s market produce for me! Yay! Strawberries! 5 years ago
I’m really dissapointed in myself for missing the farmer’s market this weekend. I missed the good one on Saturday for a valid reason. But we just overslept and didn’t make it on Sunday when I really could have if we’d tried. 5 years ago
The first corn of the year is out. Horray!
Also nectarines. yum.

I’m realizing today how much I love the farmer’s market. I am sitting here daydreaming about all those veggies and the friendly people and the dogs and the food….
Its Wednesday and I’m out of produce already. I’m finding myself longing for the next trip to the FM. I think I might have to hit the Thursday market, since I’ll be kind of nearby it tomorrow evening. I just have no desire to eat foods from the supermarket any longer. I want my food FRESH! 5 years ago
I was in sensory overload at the FM this weekend.
So many smells, colors, sounds, people, choices….
Got Lots of fruits (Peaches!!) and veg and even some meats.
We ate 100% farmer’s market dinner on Saturday night and 75% farmer’s market dinner Sunday. 5 years ago
I went to the market yesterday instead of Saturday. Actually, I might go to both.
11/17 weeks so far this year. When do I call this done? 5 years ago
Got lots of wonderful foods this week.
I seemed to have been too focused on getting all the perfect stuff for Sunday’s BBQ and neglected to get produce for the rest of the week.
- cherry tomatoes
- small onions
- green pepper 5 years ago
Summer is here and it is showing! There was so much to choose from. And we got there early so they weren’t sold out of berries. Actually there were so many berries that it probably wouldn’t have been an issue!
We got a 1/2 flat for blueberries and raspberries! Also got broccoli and zuchinni and yellow tomatoes and a delicious lunch. Boyfriend got pork chops, garlic, spinich and bell peppers. We ate a 100% farmers market dinner that night: grilled pork chops and huge salads. Delicious. Best pork chops ever!
I just signed up a pledge to buy 1 lb of localy grown food a week. Should be no problem as long as I make it to the market. Hell, I can do this in berries alone!
