This week's farmers market haul

I made the trip to the farmers market solo for the first time today. Since the whole family is in various states of sickness right now we decided that Nicole would stay home with the babes while I took care of our weekly produce shopping. Of course this meant that I was going to take the xtracycle! (even if it's all of 4 blocks away)

Today's farmers market haul included:
  • Organic Celery
  • Organic heirloom tomatoes
  • Organic purple basil (OMG smells so good!)
  • Organic butter, romaine and Lola Roza (sp?) lettuces
  • Organic white nectarines and yellow peaches
  • 5 ears of sweet white corn in the husk
  • 2 heads of broccoli
  • 2 heads of organic garlic
  • 5 medium "lipstick" bell peppers
  • 11 oz each of tamari almonds and chili con limon almonds
  • a large bunch of flowers
This farmers market is amazing and I can't think of any other single thing that has improved our quality of living in this neighborhood. We're so thankful.

On the way home I picked up a double mocha for Nicole which she was quite exctied about!


  1. Way to go, Bill! My girls love riding on the Xtracycle, ask to go somewhere everyday. I like the set up you have. What an inspiration! I'll post a link on my blog too, if that's okay with you, and look forward to reading about your adventures. Happy and safe riding!

  2. Way to go, Bill! This is awesome and encouraging to see another carfree with kids effort. I've linked you to my blog too, so we'll spread tons of word! Happy, safe riding!
