Farmer's Market - Week 8

Here are the goods from this past Saturday. There is a little hand at the bottom of the shot trying to reach for that carrot shaped like a rabbits head. It didn't last two more minutes.



I have to admit that I came home that day quite disappointed. You see, I saw a huge box of Roma tomatoes that I wanted to buy to make my sauce with, but by the time I came back around to buy it - they were gone. The farmer said she had more at home which she would bring the next morning. I walked around and tried to buy tomatoes from some other farmers. No one would sell them to me in bulk - there are just not as many tomatoes this year and they can make more money selling in smaller quantities. I understand this.

I set my alarm so that I could arrive at the Market right before they opened at 8am Sunday morning. I even had a dream about the tomatoes - I didn't get them. I set out on my mission, parked my car with purpose, raced over to the already busy market, set eyes on the box of tomatoes that was for sale and handed over 25 dollars. Here is what I came home with on Sunday.



My roasted tomato sauce deserves its own post so I'll share that later.

Your farmers' market still beats ours all to pieces. I hope you share the recipe for your roasted tomato sauce.

Bermudaonion, I feel really lucky that we do have such a good one. I just wish it wasn't quite so crowded. I will share it later this week!

Tara said...
