Today at the Wednesday Farmers Market

With the sun out and chill in the air, it was a wonderful day to be at the market.  I arrived early, around 9 am, to avoid the crowds, though there still was a number of folks with the same idea in mind.

As always, there was a wide variety of produce to choose from and marvel.  Just recently though, the spring crops have begun to appear.  Spring onions, baby broccoli, english peas, strawberries, pea vines, snap peas, asparagus, and many others.

I first headed to Coleman family farm, for their wonderful selection of fresh herbs and unusual greens, where I stocked up on Persian mint, Greek oregano, broccoli spigarello, and green garlic.

Next stop was at Greg’s (Rocky Canyon), for some grass-fed ground beef, ham hocks , and two dozen beautiful delicious eggs.  His wife dries apple rings, bags them, and sells them for a dollar.  I grabbed a couple for the kid’s lunches.

I also bought some pea vines, torpedo onions(similar to spring onions), Italian flowering broccoli, and chard. With my last dollar spent, I will have to wait until Saturday for strawberries.
