A Trip to the St. Paul Farmer's Market

Saint Paul Farmers' Market $23 bucks! That's what I spent for a baguette, red potatoes, yukon gold potatoes, peas, beets, Chinese spinach, broccoli, and fresh honey. Try getting that at the grocery store!

It was my first trip to a Farmer's Market and the one in downtown St. Paul did not disappoint. It was busy and you definitely knew what was in season. Nearly all the vegetable stands had potatoes, tomatoes, peas, broccoli, cauliflower, and beets. Almost everything there was picked that morning. You could tell the potatoes were fresh, as they're paper-thin skins were peeling. Obviously they were freshly dug up. And can you believe one bunch of beets was just one dollar?

I'll be going back and I can't wait for peppers, corn and melons to start showing up.
