Farmers’ Market 07.31.10

What a beautiful day! This week I visited the South of the James farmers’ market with Kyle and my parents, who had made a special trip to Richmond just for my birthday. I think Mom and Dad were impressed with the size of our market and the variety of things offered there. We saw plenty of fresh fruits and veggies but I tried to hold back from buying too much because I still had some leftovers from last week.

Leftover produce:

  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 1 zucchini and 1.5 yellow squash
  • 3 or 4 potatoes
  • 1 handful of raspberries

Leftover prepared:

  • 1.5 loaves of zucchini bread
  • 4 cups of kale-potato-parmesan soup

I gifted my parents with one loaf of zucchini bread and threw the squash and zucchini in with some fresh pasta and tomatoes from today’s market.

Here is what I picked up at the market today:

Tomatoes, peaches, tomatillos, poblano peppers, and fresh black pepper linguine

Kyle is officially moving in this weekend so I think the size of my market purchases is about to increase. I am no longer alone in tackling the pile of fresh local produce every week! I have a feeling Kyle will do his part very well.
