Farmer’s Market Finds: 7/25/2013

25 Jul

We had another fun week at the Farmer’s Market!  This week, we went after Katie’s basketball camp with some friends, and then saw more friends there!  It was a busy week there again, lots of people.  Here is what all we got this week:

Farmer's Market Finds: 7/25/2013Leeks, lots of leeks again…my husband came along this week too, and he wanted more leeks for Potato Leek Soup.  It’s actually not too hard to make and I really like it too, so that makes meal planning easy for this week!  All those leeks he got for $2.50.

Asiago Bread from Gabe the Bread Man.  Haven’t gotten his bread in a while, but it’s so fresh and delicious, and no preservatives.  It was hard to pick just one, but I chose the Asiago this week, and hopefully will get to try another one next week.  Really nice guy too, he donates a lot of bread to local food banks as well.  He has quite a variety of breads, now including a gluten-free sandwich bread.  I haven’t tried it yet though.  This loaf of bread as $6.

Blueberry and Chocolate Mochi Cakes from Hana’s Japanese Bakery.  We had gotten her cookies previously, and they were really good, so we got her mochi cakes to try today.  These are gluten-free.  I tried a small piece of the chocolate one, it was really moist and tasty.  These were $3, so $6 total.

3 lb bag of organic apples from English Apple Orchard.  I can’t remember the variety and the bag isn’t marked, but they are good!  This bag was $5.

5 honey sticks, various flavors from Simmons Honey Ranchito.  Great deal at only $1 for all 5!

Lunch was at J’s Kitchen food truck.  What is in the box is the only leftovers.  We got 2 of her Veggie Spring Roll meals, which includes 6 spring rolls and a side of fried rice.  Delicious!  We also got 2 16 oz bottles for water, and paid $11.

After lunch, we stopped at Big Woody’s food truck to get shaved ice (no picture).  Katie got the pink cotton candy flavor, Sophia got the blue bubble gum flavor.  Great treat for a hot day!  The small is plenty big and $2.50 each, so it was $5 for both.  My husband got his lunch here today, he had their Big Woody’s Cuban, which he loved.  All beef hot dog with ham, pork, Swiss cheese, mustard, and pickle on a Cuban roll.  I don’t remember how much it cost, but he says it’s well worth the money!


The Sierra Vista Farmer’s Market is held every Thursday from 10am – 2pm at Veteran’s Memorial Park.  To learn more, you can visit their website here or their Facebook page.  Every week they publish a newsletter with upcoming events and vendors they are expecting at the market that week.
