Farm Fresh and Local Produce 10/9/2010

Don’t know how I missed posting this one, but here’s another long lost post of the farmers market in October, 2010. This was right before I got sick, so unfortunately it was pretty much the last market I saw until mid-summer, 2011. Looking at this makes me inspired to make some cold weather dishes that […]

Farm Fresh and Local Produce 6/4/2011

When the farmers markets started up for the season, I unfortunately was still in the hospital being weaned off a ventilator and hopelessly weak (I couldn’t even sit up without toppling over). Going to the farmers market is the one thing that grounds me, no matter how frenetic the rest of my life is at […]

Farm Fresh and Local Produce 8/12/2009

It’s been almost a year of my life since I got sick. Six months of hospital beds and feeling like everything is a struggle.

San Francisco: Day 2, Part 1

To tell you the truth, the best (and the most restorative to the soul) part of my trip to San Francisco happened on Saturday morning. You all know how gung-ho I am about farmers markets, and here I was – visiting on one of the days that one of the country’s most famous farmers markets […]

Farm Fresh and Local Produce 7/10/2010

Farm Fresh and Local Produce 6/26/2010

I still wasn’t feeling 100% this past weekend, but I couldn’t resist the ritual of my Saturday morning farmers market trips, especially now since so many things are available. We started, as usual, bright and early at the North Market – Mrs. Rhoads had the first peaches of the year, and was also kind enough […]
