Farm Fresh Diary: October 9, 2010

I'm a little late on my farmers' market post this week. But I have a good reason...kinda. Well, not really; the weekend just got away from me. Evan and I had a wedding to go to on Sunday, which meant that I spent all weekend shopping for something that would appropriate for a dubstep wedding. The wedding was really nice and we looked pretty good if I do say so myself (sorry, no pictures).

The market was lovely as well. I went early, picked up some new veggies, and splurged for some goodies (like the flowers pictured above!).

Let's take a peak into my grocery bag.

Lettuce from Happy Boy Farms (my custom mix of sweet lettuce greens, bitter greens, baby spinach, and baby arugula).

A purple cauliflower--I discovered this variety of cauliflower last fall when I stopped into Andronicos in search of Melba toast. As I had never been in Andronico's before I took a few minutes to tour the store and I spied a row of orange, purple, and white cauliflower. I had never seen purple or orange cauliflower before--and I was veerry tempted to pick one up--but I opted for a couple of sugar pie pumpkins instead. One can't be
too daring in one day, after all.

Potato rosemary bread from Panorama (of course) and summer squash, strawberries, rosemary, and thyme.
