Farm Fresh Diary: October 30, 2010

Just a quick post about the farmers' market today. I wasn't really feeling up to the market this morning--and I almost just stayed in bed--but I decided to go. And good thing too, because I bought some tasty, tasty apples...among other things.

A lovely bunch of carrots (I'm definitely going to roast these), thyme, cilantro, parsley, and pink lady apples. I LOVE pink lady apples! I had one with my reaper bun for breakfast, and it was delicious!

Speaking of reaper buns, I got my pastries from the same vendor that I bought the pretzels from last week. I still don't know what the bakery is called, but I decided to branch out a bit more and try something new. I had seen these reaper buns before, but was too shy to ask about them. And even though I wasn't really in the mood for the market this morning, I decided to be daring. Funny how that works...

Anyways, I got a reaper bun (its the one on the right) and an almond danish. The reaper bun was super good...especially the caramelized sugar on the bottom.


  1. which bakery made the reaper bun? had one today and loved it but didn't know which bakery!!

  2. I don't know! But I'll find out and let you know.

  3. These pastries are from OctoberFeast Bakery in Berkeley. They also make breads and tasty Bavarian style pretzels.
