organic carrots farmers market

Nothing gets me out of bed quicker on a weekend than the prospect of a farmers market. When I was on the West Coast I managed to tick off the Santa Monica & San Francisco Ferry markets to some success. The former was great as we were buying to cook a meal, the latter infinitely frustrating as I was about to drive down to Monterey so couldn’t buy anything. (Bar a scrummy noodle-y lunch from Out The Door,  the famous SF Vietnamese restaurant The Slanted Door’s takeout, which I ate on the steps of a nearby fountain.)

Today I made it to Red Bank NJ’s little farmers market, which made up for its size by the breadth of organic, properly local and super fresh produce on offer. GG and I both bought bags of vegetables which we carted home for lunch and supper today.

The 2009 market season runs until November 22nd. The market is open every Sunday from 9am-2pm.

ps I’m now hosting my blog photos on Flickr, hence the larger size. Annoyingly, they automatically crop the right hand side of the image to fit the Blogger template. So to see any photo properly, you can always click on an image to see it in its uncropped glory. BTW I don’t photoshop or enhance my pics in any way. What you see is what I shoot.

I love me a produce market! We've got a pretty good one in town, with local eggs and honey and reeeally good gozleme.

Suddenly so hungry…

Those carrots are crying out for a touch of cumin, lots of olive oil and a bit of roasting…
