Murray Farmer's Market

On Saturday we went to the opening weekend of the Murray's Farmers Market. I've always wanted to go downtown, but this one is just right down the street at Murray Park. This is the first time I've ever been to a Farmer's Market, but I've heard great things about them so I dragged Ryan along. We had our cash in hand and really enjoyed seeing all the different food and booths. We bought onion, cucumber, peppers, bread, raspberries, and corn. All the food is delicious! We bought asiago and jalapeƱo bread and orange cranberry. They are made out of mashed potatoes and are so healthy, not processed. It's been hard not to eat all of it. We brought some down with us to share with Toni and Evan and they liked it too. I needed some more veggies so we stopped by the Sunflower Farmer's market on the way home. Have you ever been there? It's near our house and it reminds me of Winco, though a lot smaller. They have lots of healthy, great organic food and a bulk foods section too. When we got home we washed all the berries and froze them. They will be so delicious in my morning protein shakes! Do you go to Farmer's Markets? What are your thoughts?

I LOVE farmer markets!! Here on the island that is basically ALL they have here! I want to continue ALWAYS going to the farmers market! I go to the market every Sat. morning and have all the fruits and veggies for the week! I come home and soak them in vinegar water (to clean them off), cut them up for the week or just freeze whatever I need too! I just LOVE LOVE LOVE the farmers market! Everyone needs to experience it at least once!

Oh my gosh, I LOVE Farmer's Market's too!!! They are awesome. I love this season for that very reason! The one downtown is incredible - definitely hit that one up sometime for sure! I love it all! Those raspberries look yummy! I got some great bread like that at the SoJo farmer's market once, it's good stuff! I like buying organic, healthy, Utah grown stuff - totally the way to go!

Love, love, love it! I can't believe this was your first time. It's great to support local farmers and eat fresh.

We went to a local farm here in CT and did pick-your-own berries. They are so delicious fresh from the vine! Those breads sound YUMMY!
