If you don't you totes should.  The produce is much, much better than what you would get at the store, and also a lot of stuff that you wouldn't otherwise find.  I forgot to take pictures of what I got this morning, but I want to make a thread to share what I've found and for others to mistakenly talk about the superiority of their own farmer's markets.

Today I got:
-Hunk of Tomme cheese from a Mennonite farm in Pennsylvania
-Smoked salmon with orange marmalade and mustard seed
-Smoked tofu
-A baguette from a local baker
-Another local bakery where I grabbed a bourbon pecan pie and a sampler of bite sized pies and truffles, and a gingerbread man so I could recreate Goya's Saturn.
-Spaghetti Squash
-Some pine cone bird feeders
-Amaretto Peach jam from the guy who I alos buy my spicy pickles from
-Pink lady apples

bourbon pecan pie

That sounds intriguing. Weird, but intriguing.

Speaking as a Southerner, having all kinds of bourbon + pecan flavoring for various desserts isn't all that weird, and is also usually super good. I'm pretty envious.

I got to the farmer's market as often as possible, it's a bit out of the way for me but the veggie choice is always preferable to the local grocery store.

Just got back this morning!





The haul today was:
-Pickled cherry peppers from my favorite pickle guy.  The man is a genius with canning, and I buy his spicy pickle chips every other week.  These cherry peppers are pickled with garlic, mustard seed, and bay leaf.  He also does jams, and I'm trying to get him to make a spicy pear jam and call it Pearil Jam. 
-Hot peach salsa from Rigg's Farm not a dozen miles away.  The Pink Lady apples, kohlrabi, and butter lettuce also came from them.

What are kohlrabi?

They're strange little cabbages that can be eaten raw or cooked the way you would cook potatoes.  I have never had one before so I'm looking for recommendations!

Also present are a kabocha and spaghetti squashes from another local farm that I picked up because squash is fucking fantastic this time of year.

The other cannister you see is filled with a savory Thai granola.  I shared some with a butcher at a nearby stand and he recommended pairing it with andouille sausage, but I'm also thinking of rubbing goat cheese around a roast shank of some good meat and rolling it in the oats.

And obviously I got two baguettes just in time.  They run out quick.
