This will be my last farmer’s market post of the year. While there is one more Saturday market before Christmas – I won’t be able to attend because of a previous engagement. The Edenton Farmer’s Market will start back up in January with an indoor market on the second and fourth Saturdays of January, February, and March. I’m going to try to be a vendor at least once a month to help continue to showcase my brand (and with plans to create something deliciously edible soon).
I did super good, spending wise, at the market this time. I spent $39.48, slightly under my $40 goal.
So here is what I purchased from the farmer’s market:
- Hot Italian Sausage – Will be used in spaghetti soon
- 2 mini loaves of banana/pineapple/walnut bread
- 3 bars of soap from a vendor that supported me in return
- a handmade winter hat ornament (only $1!!)
- 4 pack of oreo truffles
- 3 rabbit ears for the dogs
- Package of English walnuts
- More garlic!!
- Beets (I’m think Chioggia because of how they looked when I cut into them – see below)
- Baby bok choy
- Mustard Greens
I also volunteered in the kitchen the Cupola House on Saturday evening, making sure the wassail and cookies remained stock for the guests who wondered in while on the Edenton Candlelight Tour. The Cupola House is one of my favorite houses (I swear I saw a ghost in it when I was in elementary school) and the reason why I started studying herbs (they have a huge herb garden in the back). Even though I met some wonderful people, the major perk was being able to bring home a bag of cookies and a gallon of wassail!
Last but not least – I finally have a photo from Alaska for y’all.
