I love Farmer's Markets. Ed and I went to Naples a couple of weekends ago to visit his Uncle Jack. When trying to decide what to do on Saturday morning, I was looking through the weekend events in the newspapers. I saw that Naples has 3 big Farmer's Markets. I had to go. I was determined to get some fresh fruit anf veggies to bring home.
We headed out at 7am and boy was I happy at what I found. I came home with a huge head of cauliflower, 5 big green tomatoes, 4 yellow peppers, 8 pablano peppers, 2 big eggplants, 2 cantalopes and a huge bunch of raddishes for a grand total of $7.00.
That much in the grocery store would have cost me nearly $20 (or maybe even more). The stuff was fresh anf beautiful.
Of course being a Gatherite, I had my camera with me. Here are some pics of the Farmer's Markets.
