Farmer's Market

Saturday after I went to the gym I got the bf to go with my to the local farmer's market. I had never been so I wanted to see what it was all about. I was super excited about seeing all the local veggies, fruits, meat, etc. Once we got there I was in veggie heaven. Everything looked so fresh and delicious so I got my wallet out and began purchasing. Here are some of the great finds!

Corn (white and yellow)
hot sauce
string beans

The salsa and hot sauce were made by a local and when I say local I mean it. He literally lives 3 house down from my apt and he makes it from home. Both were so very tasty.

I love any kind of fresh flowers. I got these 13 for $1. Aren't they beauties?

When I got home I right away started stringing the beans so I could take them to the cookout I was going to later.

I used to love stringing beans when I was a kid. I guess things haven't changed.
Motor was very jealous of all my finds because she wasn't getting any attention so she decided she would just sit on all my bags from the day. Gotta love her, look at that face she if giving me :)

Now I didn't get this at the farmer's market but I wanted to share it. I love popcorn but of course gave it up when I changed my eating habits. But when I was shopping the other day I found this. For the whole bag it only has 260 calories. (it's a pretty big bag)
I definitely will make the Farmer's Market a thing I do every Saturday. It prepares me for the week and I love that I get to support local farmer's.
