Winter Farmer's Market

FMproduce.jpg

I went to the Farmer's Market this morning to see what could be had in Santa Barbara in the depths of winter. The market was a bit more empty and the selection definitely sparse compared to the rest of the year. The fall produce is on the way out, though I did still see some peppers and a few butternut squash. And the spring produce is not ready yet, though there were a few sightings of strawberries and sugar snap peas. Also, there was less in the way of certified organic produce than I am used to seeing.

But as you can see from the photo above, I did manage to find enough to fill my basket. And the whole lot only cost about $18. Most of it was from certified organic growers, though the tangerines and the potatoes were merely pesticide free and the Brussels sprouts were conventionally grown. Here is the itemized list:

4 Pink Lady apples
6 Pixie tangerines
2 tomatoes
1 small bunch of Italian parsley
1 small bunch arugula
1 bunch of green onions
2 small heads of broccoli
1 small bag of mixed lettuce greens
3 small russet potatoes
1 bag of Brussels sprouts

Krista - this reminds me, I forgot to tell you that my CSA is doing a winter share this year. We're on break right now but start again next week. Lots of salad greens, micro greens, beets, carrots and radishes - the carrots are actually the best I've had in a long time.
