Saturday at the Farmer's Market

Hi everyone!  Happy Seasonal Sunday, hosted by The Tablescaper.  I'm joining the party late, but better late than not at all.

I really appreciate those of you who still check my blog for updates; I haven't done a post since June 1st.  I didn't expect to be away so long, but I've had to take some time to get things back in order around here.  The kitchen re-model is essentially done, except for those last little finishing touches that we need to do ourselves.  It actually ended up taking four months (felt like four-ev-er).  I'm hoping to show the final reveal before too much longer.

Yesterday we went to the Piedmont Triad Farmer's Market, just outside of Greensboro, NC.

 I've always loved going to the Farmer's Market on Saturdays in the summer, and for the first part of our married life, I went quite regularly.  When our son was so busy in middle school and high school, I got out of the habit of going.  We have lots of small Farmer's Markets all around our area, but this one has a pretty large selection.

This is a great time of year to go, because lots of good produce is coming in.  It was crowded and so hot, but I was glad to be there.   We came home with lots of goodies.

Irish Cobbler potatoes -- $3.00

Peaches from the North Carolina sandhills -- $5.00

"Pink" German Johnson tomatoes -- $2.00

Big bouquet of fresh flowers -- $6.00, and 18 ears of Silver King corn (not shown) -- $9.00.  Delicious food for our family -- Priceless.  :)

Are you enjoying the summer harvest at your house?  I hope you're staying cool wherever you may be; our weather forecast is in the 90's for the next ten days.  We've had triple digits in our area all weekend.  Ugh.

Thanks so much for visiting me and especially to those of you who've been faithfully following my blog.  I'll definitely be posting, and visiting all of you, more regularly now.

  1. I love farmers' markets. This looks like a fabulous one, too. I took a ride to NJ yesterday and stopped at a small stand I enjoy. Still hot and humid here, too. xo

  2. I was there on thursday and also got some great produce..

    we are so lucky to have such a great place close by.

    so hot this weekend, I stayed home.

    those peaches look devine. I can almost smell them.

  3. Your kitchen looks great and the vegetables and flowers are especially nice. Great selection at your Farmers Market. Glad you are back. I'm not exactly regular either. What's my excuse?

    Have a happy and safe July4th. My daughter and family are coming and I am so excited.

  4. I love farmers market too. And I think I have to start going to farmers market this week too. Your kitchen is beautiful! Happy 4th of July!


  5. Your flowers are gorgeous! We used to go to Greensboro all the time to the big Doll Market. I still love dolls but I don't buy as many now. I have a room full! Nice mosaics!

  6. Ohhh the glimpse of your kitchen is so tantalizing. Fresh produce cannot be beat. We're not getting anything like this yet in our Farmers' Markets. Soon I hope! I so want a ripe tomato.

  7. Nothing says summer like farm fresh fruit and veggies.

  8. Wow..that looks like a wonderful place for great local produce....the flowers are wonderful!!....Outside of Greensboro?...would that be east or west of Greensboro?

    1. It's west of Greensboro, Shirley, at I-40 and Sandy Ridge Road. Hope you can check it out sometime. My MIL says the Farmer's Market in Raleigh is fantastic; that one might be closer to you. :)

  9. Those fresh tomatoes - I'm just imagining a tomato sandwich!

  10. Hi Denise~ We have a tiny county Farmers Market that we go to every Saturday morning! We always look forward to fresh heirloom tomatoes this time of year and I can't resist bringing home a bouquet of flowers! I know you're glad your kitchen remodel is done~ what a job that throws your whole household into chaos! Stay cool~ we have been chased indoors to escape the heat!

  11. Yay! Glad to see you back. I've been AWOL for a week myself and have no wonderful kitchen to show for it.

    I love your produce, but I admit that it was the backdrop of your kitchen that really drew me in. I really LOVE it.

    Love farmers markets too. I've recently started stopping a little produce stand a few miles from home.

  12. The local farmers markets are the best place to get local and fresh. Your new kitchen looks wonderful. I'm sure it was worth the wait. Valerie

  13. You did get a lot of goodies. They look delicious in that beautiful kitchen of yours.

  14. Woohoo.. you are back!!! What a lovely haul you got from the market.. I can't wait till you reveal the rest of your kitchen. I am sure it will be awesome! Have a happy fourth. be blessed, xo marlis

  15. Fresh cut flowers, fresh produce, it does not get much better than this, for summer picking and Farmer's Market finds. Happy July 4~

  16. Those flowers are so beautiful. I just love going to the farmers market each week. Fresh produce is the best. I also love to visit other farmers markets when I am not at home. It's fun to see what other areas have to offer. Love the new kitchen.
