Farmer’s Market Bounty

September 5, 2012 by Meg G.

Today is the kind of day that makes you want to stay in bed, or on the couch, or just generally stay inside all day. I woke up to gloomy skies and hard rains and thought to myself – “Well, there goes a nice walk to the Farmer’s Market!” Luckily, the rain eased up around 10:30am, so I dusted off these beauties and hit the pavement…

Here in Worcester, we’re lucky enough to live just a five minute walk from a Farmer’s Market that happens three days a week. Unfortunately, it only runs during the day on weekdays, so once I transition back out of unemployment (soon, please!) it will be less convenient. In the meantime, however, it’s a nice diversion from the otherwise less exciting task of job-searching.

So…off I went with one of our new, pretty produce bags, courtesy of our friend Linds! Mother Made is a program of the Episcopal Community Services of Maryland and they make reusable produce and shopping bags in Baltimore City. The program hires low-income mothers/women and teaches them job training skills and promotes their financial independence. Right. Up. Our. Alley.

So what goodies came home in this little bag? Some freshly rained-upon local produce, including, an onion, two tomatoes, a red pepper, green pepper, peach, yellow squash, eggplant, and some honey (for my morning coffee addiction routine).

Off to menu plan for tonight’s Farmer’s Market meal!

Sitting with words and images from @brianandreas this morning, noticing themes of knowing and not-knowing, and choosing joy...
.
"When you quit defending the stuff you think you know, there's a lot more room to simply be there fully with all the things you don't. (Which is pretty much all of it.)" .
.
"#1: say yes to things that bring you joy. #2 say no to things that don't. #3 if you're tempted to say maybe, say no." Serious fun: eating some delicious raspberry dark chocolate dairy-free ice cream on a homemade waffle cone from cookbook author and non-processed sweets specialist, @christine.chitnis at our favorite community kitchen shop, @stockpvd Excited to try some of Christine's treats in our own kitchen!
