Farmers Market Fresh

Blueberries, Blackberries, Potatoes and more. 
Where to go and What do choose OH MY!!!! 

Today I decided to go visit the Farmers Market that we have close to where I live. I have been to a farmers market before, but not in my new town. I was very excited about going, because all of the fruits and vegetables are fresh and usually just picked or pulled out of the ground a couple of days before they sell them. This way, you know they are fresh! Here is what our farmers market looks like.

It starts at 8 a.m., but you HAVE to get their early if you want to get the good stuff. I got there around 7:40 so I could go see a friend that helped throw my wedding shower 2 years ago. I have not seen her in forever. I waited in her line for fresh blueberries.

After I waited for the blueberries, I went to find some fresh bread, but they were all out. That is one of the main reasons I went there. I was a little upset until I saw the fresh blackberries, squash, cucumber, potatoes. Oh me oh my!!!! I wanted some of everything. I got all of the above mentioned as well as some fresh shelled pinto beans, tomatoes and snap peas. I am so excited to cook some of it I can hardly wait!

Here is my collection. I got a pound of blueberries and gave half of them to my brother as well as some blackberries.                                                                                                                              ***************************

 Brian and I also went to Chuck E Cheese the other day. You may not believe this, but I have never been to chuck E Cheese. I was really excited to go with my family there and to play with my nieces. I do not have a lot of pictures from it because my camera was dying, but I was able to get a few.
 We decided to play a little ski ball. I was not very good my first time, but I got my better.
We also played basketball, motion simulator,  shooting games and so much more. We got some pizza and we won over 100 tickets, which will not get you very much at all!!
We also got this neat picture sketch taken. I got one with my oldest niece too. It was a lot of fun.

Question: Have you ever been to Chuck E Cheese? Did you revert back to being a kid?
Brian and I definitely went back to being a kid! It was fabulous. Kind of like being in Disney World again!
Question: Have you ever been to a Farmers Market? If so, what is your favorite thing to buy?
Blueberries and Blackberries are my all time favorite!

Aww sad day that the bread was gone already. :( But at least you came out with some fabulous fruits and veggies! :) We've only been to the Farmer's Market once and we enjoyed it, but it's just so far away that it makes it difficult to go frequently. We need to be better about it though since we really do want to support our local farmers!
