Saturday at the Market

Last Saturday we climbed out of the sleeper and jogged over to Friendly's for breakfast, whereupon Hoss suggested that we go to the farmer's market afterwards. Genius, that man!

I love ag markets. Syracuse is blessed with a large one, with as many as 400 vendors on summer Saturdays. It's a wonderful way to spend weekend mornings, year round.

The weather was perfect - sunny, warm, and breezy:

All of New York's best fruits and veggies were on display. The tables were loaded with pumpkins, squash, cabbage, apples, tomatoes, peppers, onions, potatoes - everything imaginable:

It was hard to pass by the cider donut stand without buying a few, but we managed it somehow. I bought a two pound roll of fresh butter that is simply to die for:

Big, juicy tomatoes for a buck a quart!

Huge seven pound cauliflowers - I bought two for two dollars each (so good with the butter!):

We also picked up a three foot stalk of brussels sprouts, two bunches of broccoli, two pounds of free range ground pork, grass fed short ribs, and a quart of naturally fermented homemade sauerkraut.

I could live there. Or in Wegman's.
