Farmers Market Haul 10/17/15

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 Mini Loaf of Sweet Potato Bread with Raisins and Nuts (on sale for $2.00) from Donna’s Desserts

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.
