I went to the farmers market yesterday and got a pretty wide assortment of food. I got plenty of vegetables: broccoli, kale, a small cabbage, sugar snap peas, a bag of salad mix, a couple beautiful small heads of broccoli romanesco (pictured below) and a head of garlic.
I also got a bagful of tangerines, a pound of butter, a dozen eggs, a jar of marmalime (marmalade made with limes), some bee pollen and a case of wine. It's amazing what you can get at the farmers market these days. Some days I buy grass fed beef, homemade sausage or cornish game hens. Other times I pick up olive oil, walnut oil, fruit juices, nuts or bread.
Of course I love buying my vegetables and fruit from the farmers market, but I find that picking up these other extras really enhances my cooking and supports the farmers and food producers.
What do you buy at your farmers market?
