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...
