Default Farmer's market visit

We went to this huge farmer's market in a city south of where we live. There are a lot of junk stalls, various ethnic clothing/other stuff, spice/tea stalls, plus a fresh fish stall, heritage pig/cow/goat cooperative stall that has gorgeous meat, lots of fruit/vege purveyors, restaurants, pretty much anything you could want. There are close to 400.vendors.

We came home with:
The salts are himalayan pink salt and black truffled sea salt. I nearly died and went to heaven when he opened the bag of the truffled salt.

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

Never explain yourself. Your friends don't need it and your enemies won't believe it anyway.

Oxtail and pork tenderloin from a Berkshire pig.

Multicolored carrots with tops, baby eggplants and some kind of tomatoes we've never seen before.

Red spring onions actually and yellow and, in real life, nearly black tipped oyster mushrooms.

the tomatoes look to be an assortment of heirloom globes - Black Cherokee, et al.


I keep badgering our local butchers to carry Berkshire/(old breeds) - there is a farm about 30 miles west that raises them but they only sell wholesale - I need a whole hog like I need a hole . . .

They are only 2 to 2-1/2 inch in diameter at most though, maybe black cherry?

I've bought those different coloured cherry tomatoes before at the supermarket.
Mine had yellow, orange, red and a dark purple.
They came in a domed bowl that was difficult to open, they were pricey too.

You're very lucky med to have those delicious, fresh things so readily available.

You should have seen what you would call the exotics. They actually had ripe star fruit, which is a rare find in the grocery even for us, golden yellow with very, very little to no green, jackfruits, longan berries, cactus app!es, guava, sapote, rambutan, etc, etc.

We are well into our growing season here so there were lots of veges actually grown here this time. Once it gets hot again, we'll be getting the leafy greens, lettuce, tomatoes, etc from up north because it gets too hot here for them come April or so.

Farmer's markets are the best! Nothing compared to a supermarket. I always find fresh products and meat tastes awesome. Congragulations on the truffled salt, it's pretty rare find.
