Farmer’s Market Saturday

Farmer’s Market Saturday

Isabella’s first gingerbread man. He didn’t put up much of a fight.

Saturday morning we went to the farmer’s market for the first time this season. We didn’t buy much because I went grocery shopping yesterday and forgot that I should hold off on purchasing produce.

But we got a carton of lovely ripe strawberries which Bella immediately dove into. And a loaf of ciabatta for dinner. We also tried out a new Indian restaurant that had a stand with a small selection of dishes. The chicken tikka masala was the best I’ve had, it came with a samosa, some naan and a chickpea dish which were also excellent. Add a side of Thai fresh rolls with greens, mango and avocado, and it was a lovely picnic lunch.

Then after we got home I sampled a log of the new cardamom orange flavor goat cheese from our favorite cheese vendor. As the maker had promised, it made a lovely accompaniment to the zucchini lemon muffins I made yesterday. (I wish I could recall who posted the recipe for the lemon zucchini muffins, they are delicious and I’d love to write a thank you note. I’d thought it was Karen Edmisten, but when I went to her blog I couldn’t find the post so if must have been someone else.)

I sure will miss this market when we move.
