Farmers Market.

There is most likely one in your area, try and find it!
Most of the farmers markets are; local, organic, fresh, friendly and much more affordable than your supermarket.
Here are some pictures from this Saturday morning. ( I did not take pictures of the fresh shrimp or grouper)
Peppers Galore

Great variety

Sprouts anyone?

Look at these Bokchoy

Red leaf lettuce etc

Dinner; lamb chops with grilled veggies and salad

Fresh produce, supporting CSA, eating local raised Grass Fed beef.
What a great country.

So, just to make sure I understand this correctly; This stuff is all organic? and the people selling it are the actual farmers?

Hi Naomi,
80% is organic, and yes the people selling it are the actual farmers.
Others for example, the "seafood stand" is operated by a seafood store locally and the owners 2 daughters work the stand Sat. morning.
Oh and talk about friendly....
I left one bag of lettuce and swiss chard at a stand, and one of the guys from the stand walked around to find me and give me my bag ;-)

Quite different from our dutch markets... Though they are great too.
