Shopping Trip: Farmers' Market 4/18/10

Since we're trying to eat from our pantry and freezer this month, we're only picking up fresh produce and milk and/or juice as needed.  I totally fell in love with the Dekalb Farmers' Market when a couple of my friends and I went a few weeks ago.  I decided my husband had to go with me to see why I love it.  After our visit today, he totally understands why.  I'm just a little foodie at heart and he's not, but he sees why I loved the place so much.  Just take a look at the picture below.  The colors are amazing and the prices aren't too shabby either!

Romaine Lettuce head $.79
Red Leaf Lettuce head $.99
Green Grapes $.99/lb = $5.19
Apples $.99/lb = $1.98

So glad you love this place!! It IS awesome. My parents started us going there 30 years ago -- my Dad goes every Friday. Next time, try eating at the cafeteria; they have very interesting food (try the Samosas!!). A couple of weeks ago, Jack and I couldn't leave the seafood dept. without 3 LIVE crawfish (1 for him, 1 for me, and 1 for my friend Sophia); Jack thought they were very fine "lobsters". Corey
