The Farmers’ Market

farmers_market

I went to the Farmers’ Market this morning.  I try to go every Saturday to see what produce they have that I’m not growing.  I picked up a 1/2 lb of organic blueberries.  That’s about it for this week.  There was lots of other stuff I enjoyed browsing.  Though I have to question whether all that packaging is really necessary?!  I have an aversion to plastic and I wish it was used a lot less! 

There is one booth that sells homemade skin creams, lip balm and soap.  Really nice stuff!  A few weeks ago I bought a jar of her cream and have been really enjoying it.  It’s lightly scented with jasmine and vanilla.  Hubby sneezes at most scented products but things naturally scented he seems okay with.  It’s nice cream but I’d like to learn to make some for myself next time.  The ingredients are simple enough.  Maybe this winter… the jar I bought should last a while.

I’m still plugging away at butchering my chickens.  I got 8 done on Thursday with my son’s help.  Today I did another 5 by myself.  My son was helping his dad with another project.   I noticed farm raised chickens were going for $2.69/lb at the Farmers’ Market.
