It's that time of year! Farmer's Market is back!

This is my haul from the market kale, cilantro, two chickens-one whole and one cut up, buffalo patties and some soap samples from a new vender. I've been using them in the shower and they're yummy!
There was a basket filled with Easter treats for kids of all ages!

This is the bag Richey gave me for my birthday. Die cut recycled billboard!  It expands and folds flat. It holds up to 35 pounds. Perfect for a trip to the farmer's market, don't you think?  It is a kiwi green which doesn't show up here too well.

While we got to go to the market all winter, the selection was eggs, meat and poultry for the most part. Last Saturday was a taste of things to come as some of the "regulars" were back.
This is Ivor and crew. They had greens and I'm watching for their watermelon radishes. Yum.

It started raining while we were there, but it didn't damped our excitement for the FM. Claire was back with beautiful plants. I've gotten lettuce and these great new wave petunias. I absolutely love the color of them!

Ah, Spring.....

OMG, I enlarged the photo of Ivor and crew and almost fainted from the beauty of the blossoms behind them. Incredible.

The bag from Richey is great. You'll be filling that up every week. Did you do breakfast after the market, like last year?

When was your birthday?

Yes, we go to breakfast almost every Saturday at Sweet and Savory until they start making omelets at the market and then it's about 50/50.
Everything is blossoming here all at the same time. It is pretty spectacular. The dogwood and redbuds are usually not the same time.
Birthday was in Feb. Richey decided to wait until I came to visit to give me presents!

Nice. Looking forward to all your farmer's market posts this year. Well we're no where that close to seeing all those blossoms on trees. Still pretty chilly when we wake up in the mornings.

I'm so excited to be heading back to the farmers' market every week. Looks like you'll be eating really well this week with all of that chicken and kale.
