We woke up really early morning to hit the farmers market, hoping to beat the rain. No suck luck, though, as the rain really started coming down. We ducked into the North Market just long enough to escape the worst of it, then returned back outside.
I saw the first of local asparagus, and my how beautiful it is. I picked up a bunch, but am not quite sure what I’m making with it quite yet.
There were an overwhelming amount of dip mixes, salsa in jars ad the like (last year I remember it being many more farmers), but one new addition I was happy to see was Meadow Maid and their many varieties of cheese.
Over to Clintonville, and it became a mad dash through the market to just get a couple of items before the rain came down again. I didn’t get any of these, but loved the color of the spring braising greens from Elizabeth Telling Farms.
Over at Sweet Thing, we got lured in by their samples and ended up getting a jar of their blueberry habanero jam. Yum.
We had enough harvested here at home that we didn’t need any green onions, but the bunches I saw were especially perky and fresh. How may ways do I love green onions? Later on I’ll let you all know.
Next week Worthington opens, so it’s back to my 3 market Saturday morning habit. Where did you go today and what did you pick up?
