Wee! I do love our Farmers Market and I thought I’d show you what I picked up. I did some delicious damage and I freely admit accidentally tickling by standers as I walked by trying to get my wallet back into my purse. Oops. For Food:
I found these cool white patypan squash that have a destiny to be stuffed with mushrooms, bacon and tomatoes.
One GORGEOUS deeply purple eggplant
An assortment of multicolored cherry tomatoes. When it comes to tomatoes I feel the weirder looking the better tasting. As well as my firm belief that purple is the best flavor of all. Gimme those antioxidants and phytochemicals.
Some BEAUTIFUL donut peaches. I’d love to get my hands on some figs to make vegan ‘donuts.’
In the back there is a strange minty green colored melon. I have no idea what kind it is. I just had to have it from sheer strangeness.
I also got a lovely rosemary plant. Which upon further reflection…..I’m not entirely sure where in my tiny apartment it is going to live….but at least I had an extra pot. Rosemary is one of my favorite herbs and apricot rosemary one of my favorite flavor combinations. Perhaps I will try peach and rosemary with the donut peaches. Yum.
I picked up a few things from Sumptous Soaps. These have been a favorite of mine and I love seeing the new things.
First I got a Huckleberry Shampoo Bar, which I’m hoping will help cleanse my dry colored hair without stripping it’s oils or leaving it too greasy. The ingredients are Saponified coconut, palm, olive, castor and jojoba oils, shea butter, red 33, huckleberry fragrance, silk.
I also got some Lavender Ultimate Moisturizer. I love these moisturizers they are really intensely hydrating. This one included shea butter, jojoba oil and lavender essential oil.
Lastly I got a Refresh Body Spray which can be used as a deodorant. I’m all into natural deodorants and can tell you now I’ve stopped using conventional antiperspirants that I actually almost don’t even need anything it’s so mild. This includes water, polysorbate, grapefruit, lavendin, clary sage, tea tree and litsea oils.
This is the potenially the most exciting purchase of the day. OMG guys it tastes SOOOOO GOOD!
Six-Mushroom WHITE TRUFFLE (truuuuufffffffflllllleeeess….yaaaaas) Balsamic Vinagarette.
Not to mention it is also Non GMO and Gluten Free. Get on my salad. Get on my steak. Get in my mouth. Yum.
I also found this cute booth that sold these pretty patterned no breakage hair ties. I’m sure we’ve all seen these by now but it was $5 for 6 ties which is pretty good compared to other prices. Plus they’re all in my favorite colors. I thing the pineapple may be my favorite. It’s no secret that I love peacock feathers. I have many decorating my apartment and these were freshly shed by the birdy owner for 6 for $5. Pretty: )
I was far too excited to use my Balsamic Vinaigrette so I whipped up a salad with the cherry tomatoes and some pistachio sheep cheese. Omnomnomnomnom.
