The remaining weeks of shopping at the Saturday morning farmers markets are getting fewer. We really try and make it every week at this point in the year, knowing that the long stretch of no outdoor markets is just ahead. This past week, we took photos of what we bought (including the Dahlias, shown above, $4.) as an inspiration and reminder to squeeze in a visit before they close up shop for 2007. Here's what we brought home...
DELICIOUS French Breakfast Radishes, $2
Red Hen Baguette, which we ate for lunch when we got home, spread with butter and the radishes above, thinly sliced
Mini pumpkins, 2 for $1, just for fun
A few bunches of basil, for pesto and bruschetta
SCRUMPTIOUS Yellow Tomatoes, for the bruschetta mentioned above and sandwiches all week, $3
And, finally, another small bunch of flowers that we don't know the name of, $4 (and they are lasting really well by the way!)
All of the above was purchased last Saturday at the Farmers Market in the Lincoln Park High parking lot. We also recommend and enjoy the Green City Market. For more Chicago Farmers Market locations and info, check here.
