Hooray for the Farmer's Market

Hooray, our local farmer's market is open again! It's within walking distance and we took Beaker there this past weekend. The only catch is that dogs aren't allowed, so we took turns going in.

You can see the abundance of wonderful food in California. We bought strawberries, boysenberries, apricots, pluots, peaches, artichokes, eggplant, onions, zucchini, and cherries.

We also bought a cherimoya, which is a custard apple. This one is locally grown and we are excited to see how it compares to the ones we had in Peru! This one is a lot smaller! Click here for that post.

We also bought some eggs from Your Family Farm where a family raises 250 chickens and pastures them. They had great photos of the farm and the chickens and I was happy to pay the price. Check out our past post on Full Belly Farm eggs here. You can see we have a new philosophy on quality eggs and why we will pay more than a few bucks for them.

Too bad that you couldn't take in your pup. In Sioux Falls, the much, much smaller farmer's market is just in a parking lot so you don't get the variety, but at least it can be a family outing...
