The joy of farmer’s markets


One of the best things about May is that the local farmer’s markets open back up and sell their fresh produce. I much prefer getting my fruits and veggies from local growers for a few reasons:

  1. it’s cheaper than at the supermarket,
  2. it’s fresher (usually),
  3. and you know the money is going directly to the farmers.

So, last week I tried one about ten minutes from my house that I hadn’t been to before and picked up, among other things, a Texas Colossal Onion. This thing is a beast—probably the size of three large onions combined. And though it was too big for any standard baggie, it was worth getting for the uniqueness alone. It doesn’t hurt that it tastes good, too. :)
