Holiday Farmer's Market

This was only the second year for the holiday farmer's market. It was in a smaller location this year and I really hope they move it back to the original location next year. Everything was so crowded and even with The Good Daughter in her umbrella stroller, it was hard pushing her through the crowd and carrying all my bags.

It was also bittersweet for me since the HFM was the last thing TGD and I did with my mother-in-law before she passed away last November.

But I did walk away with a good amount of food.

I walked away with salad greens, organic beef jerky and beef sticks, cabbage sprouts, 'taters, cheddar blue cheese, heirloom tomatoes, carrots, radishes, cauliflower, and french bread rolls.

I ended up making roasted cabbage sprouts and crisped buttered 'taters. Everything else went into a salad.

Since the HFM is just before Thanksgiving, maybe next year I will buy a turkey and have a local feast.

I do feel very lucky we have year round farmer's markets. I feel like I crave produce more in the winter when it's harder to find.
