Sage is checking out my new bag, the raspberry chipotle cheese, and a bar of "dirt" soap (made with brewed coffee and coffee grounds.
From May until October, there is a farmer's market held on our street about a block down from our house. I have been so excited for this season as there are more young vendors with a large variety of goodies.
After Chase was out of school, the three of us wandered down to the market despite the extremely chilly for May temperatures. Chase visited the Amish family first (his favorite stop) and picked up a fresh cinnamon roll (it was huge and looked absolutely delicious). We opted not to pick up any plants this time around (last week Chase brought home dill and a marigold from a local non-profit) because I have no place to store anymore plants indoors! (especially since I have three felines who think that plants are for their snacking)
I did, however, pick up the bag pictured above after falling in love with it last week. It's pretty deep and has pockets on the inside. These bags are made by a little old lady out of recycled materials. I love it. I originally thought of it being another knitting bag, but I think it would be great for when I go out and want a light weight shopping bag.
We also picked up the cheese from a vendor that was a bit rude. Steve says we probably won't purchase anymore from them since she had a bit of an attitude with Chase. Finally we grabbed two more bars of soap (Chase wanted a bar of oatmeal, milk and honey last week -- I gave in to him this week). Last week I picked up a bar of beer soap and have been enjoying it so I could not resist purchasing another bar.
So far this season has been excellent. I look forward to when the weather is warmer and more farm fresh items are featured.
