I haven’t been to my local farmer’s market hardly any this year. The one in Elizabeth City isn’t as good as the one in Edenton (in my opinion) and I haven’t been in Edenton much on Saturday mornings. I think this may have been my 3rd time going to the outdoor market? Anyway, I took $40 with me and came home with $.15. Not too bad.
Here is what I bought from the Edenton Farmer’s Market for $40.
- 1 Pint of Apple Cider ($2.00)
- 1 Bag of Snow Balls (aka Mexican Wedding Cookies) ($3.50) from Donna’s Desserts
- 1 Mini Loaf of Banana Pineapple Nut Bread ($2.50) from Donna’s Desserts
- 1 Mini Loaf of Sweet Potato Bread with Raisins and Nuts (on sale for $2.00) from Donna’s Desserts
- 1.02 lb. of Grass Fed Ground Beef ($6.60/lb. + tax = $7.85) from White Oak Hill Farms
- 2 Pumpkins (The Cinderella was $5, the other was $3)
- 1 Container of Blue Potatoes ($3.50)
- 2 Acorn Squash ($1.50/lb.)
- 1 Spaghetti Squash ($1.50/lb.)
- 2 Zucchini Squash ($1.50/lb.)
- 2 Red Onions ($1.50/lb.) – My per pound items ended up costing $10.50 altogether.
Almost as soon as I got home, I had a neighbor call me. With the temperatures dropping, she had went out into the garden to pick the remainder of her Summer produce. She asked if I wanted any green bell peppers. I’m not a fan of green bell peppers but my mom is and had been pouting because her plants did poorly this year, so I said yes. That’s one neat thing about living next to neighbors who gardens – you can share and trade. I had given her a bag of grapes picked from our vines a few weeks ago.
