Hi guys! I have lots of pictures to share today!
Yesterday was the first day of the farmer’s market that is held in my current small town of Dekalb, IL. With Dekalb being so small I really struggle to get good produce out here and affordable, good organic food is almost impossible. So trying not to hold my breath is anticipation is understatement. I was really worried this wouldn’t go well….
But I totally didn’t need to!! Look at this awesome haul! *__* I’m in heaven!!
My boyfriend, Carlos and I live close to “downtown” so we walked over. This was the first siting, it seemed small but hopeful.
There was even a cute popcorn stand!
The first booth we happened on had flowers, lovely herbs, annd fruits and veggies! We tried to keep it cool as we saw all the awesome produce. It’s been a whole YEAR since we’ve seen stuff this fresh!
We swiped up some of these pretty peaches, in addition to zucchini and ah-mazing tomatoes.
Then we found a lovely bread booth that had bread freshly baked that morning! It was hard to pick just one loaf!
We’re totally picking out a pastry next week 😀
Next we got absolutely the most amazing asparagus, potatoes and an onion, buuut I forgot to get a picture of that booth… sorry! :S
Our last stall visit had by far the prettiest set up and also the most variety. We got super delicious corn, squash and a lemon from here.
Though we have to try the fruit next time too…
Look at those berries!
They had even had pears and honey!
When we got home I made homemade salsa ( ! ) I miss salsa, and turkey BLTs. It was a great lunch!
After lunch I finished up a new project I’ve been working on for my shop!
Toadstool cake toppers or terrarium figurines! Whadda ya think?
I’m pretty excited about them! I hope they will find loving homes oooorrr they can just stay with me 😀
Do you have a local farmer’s market you frequent or place you find fresh goodies?
