Last weekend I enjoyed brunch with my friend Wendi. While we were chatting about our men, her new car, my job, etc, she mentioned that Frisco (a town just a hop, skip, and a jump from where I live) has a weekly farmers market. I have never been to one, so I made a mental note to visit it. And that’s what I did yesterday!
The market was small, so I made a lap around when I first got there to check out all my options. My first purchase was a cupcake.
This big ol’ bad boy was only two bucks and delicious. (It was wedding cake with butter cream frosting.) Sadly, I left it in my car while I ran other errands because I wanted to save it for later. When later rolled around, the cupcake was melt city. Luckily it still tasted wonderful!
My next purchase was some local honey.
According to the vendor, they include all the local pollens, so the honey helps with your allergies. Interesting. Apparently it’s particularly good for kids under 12, but I don’t have any of those. I poured some of the honey on my peanut butter toast this morning. Yum!
Other purchases included peaches (so juicy!) and red potatoes (that I have yet to do anything with). It felt really nice to support local vendors. Plus, everything cost me less than $20 total. That’s a good deal in my book.
I spent the rest of my Saturday being incredibly tired. I don’t know why, but I was in major zombie mode. I fell asleep on the couch around 7. Geronimo woke me up a few hours later to take him out, and then I relocated to the bed and slept some more. Hey, it’s the weekend. It’s meant for catching up on sleep, right?
Do you believe what that guy said about the local honey helping your allergies? What should I do with those red potatoes I purchased? All I can think of is roast ’em.*
