What is your favorite thing at the farmer's market?

Frank LOVES blueberries! We just bought a flat of 12 pints for $25 at the farmers market downtown.

You are not supposed to wash them but lay them on a flat baking sheet (with a small rim or they all fall off before you get them to the freezer!) and freeze them for about an hour.
Bag them up and keep in freezer for fresh berries all year.

To unfreeze them, Frank puts warm water in a glass measuring cup in the microwave for 1 minute. Then he tosses in a handful of berries and lets them sit while he puts cereal into his bowl, milk then adds the berries.  The water always turns purple so I let it cool and drink it with my fruit and yogurt.  He used to just toss it down the drain!  Ack!

Fresh berries every morning!

The best thing at the farmer's market though is the tiny tiny thin carrots. Like eating a stick of sugar! Yum!

This week the creole tomatoes were like sinking your teeth into a sweet ball of love!

glen: we go every week to the farmer's market and get a flat of either strawberries or blueberries to freeze during their seasons.


  1. Yum! We joined a farm co-op this year. Farmer's have had a bad start to the season with all the rain in Ohio this Spring so the baskets have been delayed. We get our first basket tomorrow. Can't wait to see what we get.

  2. I'll pass on the blueberries but those carrots and tomatoes sound wonderful.

  3. Love all the farmer markets in our neck of the woods. This past month I have had some of the best tasting strawberries ever!!

  4. all the produce makes me drool. Not much here yet for farmer's market. Its hard to grow anything in constant rain.


I love to hear from friends! Thanks for leaving a message!
