Fresh From The Farmer's Market
* Thanks to A Veggie Venture for this great Farmer's Market icon! :o)
This morning we set out for one of our adventures and we passed a road side Farmer's Market where there were lots of yummy things, so would couldn't help but stop!
We got peaches, peas, purple potatoes, blueberries, honey and cucumbers. Alexis picked out everything but the peaches. Those were for me, though I'll share!
The blueberries, besides just for cereal and such, are for the 4th of July desert I'm making for tomorrow. More about that then! ;o)
The stand we stopped at had a pick them yourself option. I think we'll have to go back and do that soon! We didn't have time today though.
Alexis thought the purple potatoes were cool:
Now if she actually will eat them, we'll see about that! ;o) Strangely she's not much of a potato person, though Jamison and I both are.
Peas, honey and cucumbers:
I think we're going to make some risotto tonight and use the peas since Jamison is working late. As for the cucumbers, Alexis goes through about 2 of them a day! She loves them and so do I. And last but not least honey...We didn't really need more honey, but Alexis thought the bottle was cute and you can never have enough honey! We go through it fast around here!
The main reason for the stop was when I saw they had peaches:
There is nothing like a sweet, juicy peach picked right of the tree! They had a pick it yourself option for those too (and cherries as well)! I'm going to freeze some of them for use in cobbler or ice cream later and enjoy some of them fresh or in smoothies.
What a great find! We'll most definitely be going back soon! :o)

I was very pleased with the finds! The peas made an excellent risotto and the peaches are some of the juiciest I've had in years! I think I may be coming up with a blueberry/peach muffin recipe this weekend! :o)
