VeganMoFo: Produce



"Farmers Market Produce"




I haven't posted a food shopping trip in months and months. I find it fun to see what other people have purchased so I don't know why I stopped.

Today I went to the "farmers market" with my sister after lunch today. I put "quotes" around farmers market because it isn't really one. It calls itself one but the produce does not come from any proper farm that would sell at a real farmers market. It's basically a produce store with cheap fruits and veggies and a few canned sorta goods. Its great for when I need to bring down the amount of money I spend on food. I got the above haul for $50. If I went to my usual Whole Foods and bought all of that it would be close to $200.




What you see and can't see in the pics: lemons, garlic, peppers (red and jalapeno), plantains!!, broccoli, leeks, string beans, radishes, asparagus, brussels sprouts, parsley, onions, red onions, zucchini, cantaloupe, yukon gold potatoes, garlic chili sauce, walnuts, cashews, rigatoni. Possibly more. I just realized that I forgot to buy bananas for Reno. Oh well.



My bouquet of parsley. I actually find it very pretty and wouldn't mind displaying some parsley in my kitchen all the time. That lovely bunch will probably be made into a delicious pesto in a day or two.

I also plan to make the Bean and Leek Cassoulet (sp?) w. Biscuits from V'con. Maybe a pot pie. Pumpkin Baked Ziti for a pot luck, Rice and Beans w. Plaintain Chips and some kick ass stir fries among other things. It will be a delicious and fun comfort cooking week.

i really love seeing what other people purchase at the store. it's one of my favs! yay! i see that chili garlic sauce in there! mmmmmmmmm! and i really love the bouquet of parsely. maybe i should start doing that once we run out of parsely in the garden - 'cause whenever i buy parsely i always forget about it in the fridge and then it goes bad. sadface!

what a haul for $50 bucks! i wish we had a cheap produce store... are they year-round? the only crappy thing about my farmers market is that it's over in november and they really only have potatoes and beans right now anyway.

It is year round because it's an actual store that just refers to itself as a farmers market.

Our good and real farmers market only has a few weeks left and I'm sad. I haven't been in weeks and it looks like I won't be going the next 3 weeks either. My saturdays are jammed packed with stuff to do.

What a great deal! And the parsely does look pretty on display...
