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.
