Sept 29 - Photo a Day - Errand

Saturday Morning at Kanata Farmers' Market
If only all errands were so much fun! Our closest Farmers' Market is tiny... maybe 15 booths, but we're getting to know some of the dear, friendly sellers, and truly love supporting local, non-chemical (if not yet certified organic) merchants.

Here's our usual haul:
  • A mound of tomatoes
  • Herbed (or not) goat cheese
  • Free-range eggs
  • Sourdough and/or whole-grain and seed bread
And then there are the ocassionals:
  • green, yellow, and red peppers
  • green and yellow string beans
  • cauliflower (often made into "rice" or pizza crusts)
  • brussel sprouts
  • apples (honeycrisp again today... oh my!)
  • berries
  • and cilantro salsa (the recipe I tried--somewhat successfully--to copy this year.)

We put off the rest of our errands until tomorrow so we could enjoy this gorgeous weather (it looks grey, but there's actually a bright blue sky with just a few puffy clouds outside) and join some friends for a bike ride. Sooo... we're off, and you get a taste of my favourite errand of all!

P.S. This turned out to be a pretty fitting post for the night of the Harvest Moon! Hope you enjoy it.
