More Farmer's Market Finds
I've been having a great time scoping out the local farmers markets, and so far, Sanford is still my favorite. I found the Wednesday market in DeLand to be too big and too far to go for too little local produce, and while I did find a great local vendor at Lake Eola, I'm not sure I'd make that drive every week.
Here's what I got on my last trip to the Sanford market - two huge heads of broccoli, a large head of romaine, a huge head of red leaf lettuce, a bunch of plum tomatoes and more turnips (with greens) than would fit in the fridge - all for $12. The farm that has the greens mentioned that everything had been cut the day before, and I love the idea of the food being so fresh and it lasts incredibly well. On my first trip there, I had chard that lasted close to two weeks!
