Farmer’s Market Finds: 5/9/2013

9 May

I haven’t made it to the Farmer’s Market in a long time!  It does run year round here, but I just haven’t found the time to make it.  Today, I finally made it back and also picked up some things from a friend’s farm as well.  She is going to be at the Community Market on Saturday, but I’m not able to make it then, so I met her today.

So, I’ll start with the items from Christie, from Basicfarm7.

Food from Basicfarm7I got 1 dozen fresh eggs, onions, feta cheese, and mozzarella.  I had almost half the feta crumbled on a salad for lunch (I LOVE feta!).  I chopped up a red onion and some of the greens to add to my stuffed shells filling that we had for dinner tonight.  I also grated one bag of the mozzarella for the filling and over the top of the stuffed shells as well.  The rest of the mozzarella, another onion, and an egg will go into making a Sausage & Potato Pie.  So excited as it’s been a while since I made it.

Then, later in the day, I headed to the Farmer’s Market.  Not much, but it was nice to walk around and see what was available.

The maple syrup is pure maple syrup brought in from New York.  It looks really good, and I can’t wait to try it out on pancakes and waffles.  Then, I also got 2 books written by Suzanne M. Malpass.  She has written four books that are true stories about animals and have happy endings. Plus, they have wonderful illustrations.  A Lab’s Tale is for us to keep, and Colorado, The Flying Horse is for my friend’s daughter who loves horses.  Suzanne was there today and signed these books for me. To find out more about Suzanne and her books, you can visit Straddlebooks.com.  She will be selling them at a festival in St. David, AZ, this weekend, and then is headed back north for the summer. You can also find her books online, but if you buy them in person, she will sign them as well, which is neat.  My older daughter read A Lab’s Tale for her nightly reading log for school, and she really enjoyed the story.

Hopefully, I will get to check out the Farmer’s Market more in the weeks to come, instead of going months in between!
