Farmers Market and Raw Food

by Susan on September 19, 2010

It is my favorite time of the year to go to the farmer’s market. Even though it was the perfect morning to sleep in a bit, it was also my favorite type of day to go to the farmer’s market. A good chill was in the air and the sky was overcast. I pulled one of my big, warm sweaters and headed over. The Minneapolis Farmer’s Market was my destination of choice this morning.

I know I have said it before, but I absolutely love the farmer’s market. So bustling with energy, wonderful smells, and interesting people. Perusing the isles, this morning, I left the camera at home. I was on a mission. Find veggies at great prices.

It is a wonderful time to be shopping the market. There are so many different fruits and vegetables available. Today’s haul included:

Late crop raspberries,carrots, and organic face cream…

Brussels sprouts…

white Beets…

lemons and a little sage…

rosemary and parsnips…

two huge daikon radishes…

some thyme…

a bunch of kale…

and finally, a bunch of bok choy.

Unbelievably I got all of this for under 25.00. That included the 10.00 for the face cream and the raspberries which were the second most expensive at 5.00. Most everything was between 1-2 dollars a bunch. Now I am off to the kitchen to start whipping up some wonderful raw food recipes!

You make it look so beautiful.
I saw your earlier tweet about heading down to the market – and thought for a microsecond of rushing off to join you. Then thought better of it

I hear from people sometimes that they think the farmers’ market is expensive and I think what?? There is so much value to be found there!

I also bought a daikon today and am not sure what I’m going to do with it.
