Another trip to the market

This week, all of Austin is celebrating EAT LOCAL Week. Of course, we joined that train a few weeks ago as the local farms have a lot to offer and our local farmer's market is the best in the city. We came away from the market with a lot of bounty - apple butter, a basket of cameo apples, meyer's lemons, basket of sweet potatoes, basket of red & white onions, basket of tomatoes, red leaf lettuce, bibb lettuce, sweet italian peppers and bell peppers. We also listened to live folk music and admired the lovely orchids. Enjoy the pics!

Beautiful Orchids

Live music - 3 folk singers

Broccoli, cauliflower, peppers, beans

Bibb lettuce among other lettuces

Meyer's Lemons - now in season. Hmm.. Lemon Meringue pie!

Mini sweet potatoes

This is probably the last time we'll see fresh tomatoes

Texas Cameo Apples - great for baking!
