Market Days

The market days have arrived! Saturdays, Sundays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays all feature Farmer's Markets within about 5 miles of our home, or sometimes, even within walking distance. This season of bounty makes me laugh with delight. Today the boys went out on the town, grocery shopping and hitting up the Farmer's Market. They returned with all kinds of fun groceries (including yummy chocolates from Trader Joe's) but I was most enthusiastic about all their spoils from the farmer's market. Goodies included a bouquet for Mom (so thoughtful, don't you think?), fresh asparagus, pickled asparagus, lettuce, spinach, a flat of the first strawberries of the season (soon to be turned into strawberry shortcake in order to celebrate the series finale of Lost, set to premiere in less than 3 hours, people!). and a trio of heirloom tomato plants. Isn't it all so pretty?
In keeping with the market theme, I loved this great "bouquet" idea, courtesy of Design*Sponge. Such a unique way to highlight market veggies...
And they even include a how-to:
Happy Spring! Hope your markets and veggies are brightening your days.
