Farmer’s Market

Tonight we went to our local farmer’s market!

We got almond butter, eggs, onions, dried pasilla peppers, tomatoes, some squash, and a cucumber! I also bought two beautiful honey-scented candles from a local candlemaker. I’m going to give the candles to my brother and his wife as a housewarming gift (hopefully along with some knitted house items, if I have time); they are in the process of buying a house!

We’ve decided to temporarily put our veggie-box subscription (from a local farm which has a vegetable delivery service) on hold for the summer. It’s partly for economic reasons (as an orchestral musician, I don’t get many gigs during the summers), and partly because the Farmer’s Market is so convenient during the summer. I feel so excited to have such a great local source for fresh produce!! Plus, going to the Farmer’s Market is just so much fun– they have a band playing each week, and it’s a fun, festive atmosphere. I love summers!
