I went shopping at the farmer’s market yesterday–one of my favorite things to do–and brought home these beautiful fresh fruits and vegetables. I’m going to be eating good this week.

I plan to make stuffed green peppers with these beauties.

And a batch of eggplant Parmesan with these babies.

I also picked up some cherry pie filling, cherry jam, blackberry jam, and some enormous fresh blackberries. I’ll throw some sugar over the blackberries plus a tablespoon or two of blackberry jam for extra goodness, spoon them over biscuits or sponge cake, and top them with whipped cream. If you haven’t tried blackberry shortcake, give it a try. It’s a real treat.

I also picked up some pulled pork, sausages and peppers, homemade banana bread,  blueberry muffins, fresh eggs in a rainbow of colors, and hand-made soap. You can’t find goodies like this in the grocery store. If you have a farmer’s market in your area and haven’t given it a try yet, what are you waiting for?

  1. Mmm. Farmer’s market food is always good! I remember the horses love Farmer’s Market carrots the best since they are so sweet! They love the tops of the carrots just as much.
