A Trip to the Market...


I do most of my produce shopping at Cuevas Produce. I got all of this beautiful produce for 7 dollars... I would have paid more than that just for the pineapple and the strawberries at the local grocery. I always go to Cuevas first to see what they have and then I head over to do the rest of my shopping at the grocery. I'll write more about Cuevas at a later date... it is a wonderful small business with a lot of local history and tons of fascinating urban legends surrounding it.
On Tuesdays from 3 -6 we have a farmer's market. Some days after I pick up my oldest from school we will stop by to pick up something fresh and delicious from the local farmers. I bought some wonderful spicy greens last time I stopped by... and of course the girls picked out some pumpkins for Halloween on another visit.


We took a field trip to Central Market in Austin recently. We decided that we would take a photo of my little one here in front of the pumpkins instead of paying an arm and a leg to visit the pumpkin patch... They had an incredible selection of gourds, winter squash and pumpkins on display.






Central Market also has a whole host of other cool things to see. Fresh baked breads... a huge coffee and tea selection... cheeses and olives... you name it and they probably sell it.


And of course who can forget the figs...
Cheers!

  1. Hi Jenn, Thanks for visiting my blog. There are great free programs online. The easiest one, for me is at http://www.picnik.com. They have a collage area and that is where I've made my headers. I didn't have photoshop and wanted to do this too. My daughter, who's almost 13, told me about picnik. Anyways, after you've got the pictures together you click done and then you can do some cool stuff with it. Borders, Writing, etc. I get most of my images from photobucket.com and the vintage graphic fairy. http://graphicsfairy.blogspot.com/

  3. Looks like a great market. Here in Colorado everything is seasonal and I really miss the Farmer's Market that used to come to our community. Enjoy!
