How freakin lucky am i?
To have a full on farmers market going on just blocks away from my office every Thursday? Its literally so close that I can run over, do a full week's vegetable shopping, and be back at my desk in under 30 minutes. Weekend markets really tick me off. They're overpriced, loud, and full of women using their strollers as crowd battering rams (Thats your child in there. Seriously.). The Thursday market is practically empty though; the only actual lines are for the prepared lunch type items. Its great to be the only freak who wants a head of cauliflower at 1:15pm on a weekday. And the onions!!! Yellow, red, white, leeks, green, and then varieties of onions I didn't even know existed like sprouted sweet onions in red and green.
Today I ran over and got a few heads of garlic, a bunch of carrots, a zucchini, 3 bell peppers and 4 onions. I spent $4.70. Awesome.
