Franklin Farmer's Market

This morning we woke up early to go to the Franklin Farmer's Market. It was INCREDIBLE-- even better than the one in Baltimore. It is a producers only market and most of the stuff was organic is well. Here is a photo of our spread. We bought so much stuff! I can't wait to experiment with it all. From left to right, this is what we purchased:

Flowers: lots of zinnias, some celosia (BRAIN!), sunflowers, other stuff I don't know
Cream, rainbow chard, blackberries, carrots, whole wheat sourdough bread, eggplant, squash blossoms, carrots, milk, fresh lavender, cantaloupe, sweet cream butter, green beans, arugala, and green leaf lettuce. We also got picked out the best watermelon I've had this summer, which is not pictured here.

Tonight I'm going to make squash blossom quesadillas for dinner. Check out my Flickr page later for more pictures from the market.

That looks great! We're loving our CSA, but it might be nice to have a good farmer's market as well. The one closeby is kind of lame.
