To Market To Market...With Out A Camera!

As I was driving to the market yesterday, it suddenly popped in to my groggy mind that I had forgotten my camera! And what a day to forget it, we had a political celebrity visiting the Beaverton Farmer's Market. Chelsea Clinton was there wandering the market, kissing babies and obliging shoppers with photos. I didn't see her carrying bags of produce, probably didn't have the chance to shop with all the attention!

As far as produce goes, there were more strawberries this week, three different kinds of radishes, baby bok choi, three varieties of new potatoes and more of the same from last week.

I had a fun visit from a friend who came to peruse the local produce. She got there bright and early and was one of the lucky few who got some strawberries. She remembered her camera and wrote a nice post about her trip to the market.

One of the perks that comes with working at the market is that you get to trade with other vendors. So, along with the produce from our booth, I brought home some local-fresh-picked-no-spray-asparagus (that was a mouthful!) and these nice baguette's to help round out the weeks menu.

Some other excitement on the food front: I spent some of our federal stimulus money and bought myself a nice gas grill!

We are still putting the thing together. I thought you could just walk out of the store with it and start cooking. I had no idea it came in a box with a hundred pieces and a huge instruction booklet. But once we get this baby together, I'm going to be a grilling fool this summer!

Oh, geez - THAT's why there were Hillary signs all over the place, and one lone Obama flyer-hander-outer.

We sure enjoyed out berries, thanks to you!
