Loving the Farmers Market

July 049

I may not have an operational kitchen to fully enjoy the various goods from our local farmers market, but I am really enjoying dropping by our local market most weekends to see what the newest offerings are.

Living in an agricultural community has a few downsides (like the fact that our neighborhood elementary school had to have new top soil laid down because the dirt is contaminated with so many pesticides from previous farming), but one major upside is the plethora of fresh produce available. Whether it’s corn and zucchini, blueberries, cantaloupe or peaches, our farmers market has it, and if you can’t wait until Sunday, you can stop by any of our various fruit stands dotted around town.

Aren’t these peppers gorgeous? I was so inspired to make homeade salsa, hopefully before summer is over, I’ll be chopping and dicing away.

Which, by the way, the island is in. Aaron ordered a kitchen aid mixer stand for the island and I am thrilled! Aaron got most of the electrical finished last night and I helped him start laying the hardy-backer for the tile floor. Hopefully by this weekend, tile and appliances will be in.

    That’s what I am going to miss about Yakima….all that fresh produce. I doubt I can walk down the hill and pick cherries, apples and pears right off the tree like I can now!
