Mister and I headed out early to the market. A local restaurant is a HUGE supporter of farmers and the local food movement. They host a weekly market in the spring and summer. In winter they have a market one Saturday a month. Farmers head into town to sell winter fare which surprisingly is many: honey, beef, pork, poultry, lamb, mushrooms (!), cold frame or greenhouse greens, preserves, bread, pasta, etc. We walked away with quite a haul. Here are some of the highlights.
Eggs from Buff Orpington and Wyandotte
Yellow oyster mushrooms grown by Ozark Forest Mushrooms
I wish you could smell these beautiful gems - earthy rich possibilities!
Locally raised Cornish hens - mmmm! These littles will be going into the claypot soon.
Right now I'm making whole wheat buns for dinner tomorrow and researching when to start my seeds! That is a daunting task first time out. Ack! When do I do some of these? I'm back to hitting the books for research.
