This week’s basket from Milk and Honey Organics was packed with beautiful, organic produce! The basket included MacIntosh Apples, Red Pears, Bananas, Scallions, Parsley, Chard, Mixed Baby Greens, Snow Peas, Roma Tomatoes, Yams, Broccoli, and Cauliflower. Check out some recipe ideas for this week’s basket on the M&H’s Blog, “The Beehive Buzz.”
On top of that, I stopped by the Rutherford Road Farmers’ Market on the way home from work and picked up the rest of this week’s groceries. If you haven’t shopped here, you have to give it a try. It’s open all year round, Mondays through Saturdays! You can even purchase raw milk here! And just behind the milk and cheese cooler are some flaps you can walk through into a large refrigerated room with eggs and tons of produce. It’s so much fun to shop here!
All Local Products: fresh eggs ($3/20), all-natural cheeses (~$6 each), Happy Cow butter ($7.99), raw milk ($3.50), all-natural ground beef ($3) and pork sausage ($3.50), local honey ($10), veggies (onions, shallots, red potatoes, baby carrots, and radishes), cilantro, garlic, ginger, and two squash from the “bargain table” (gently bruised for 50¢/lb.). All of the farmers’ market finds, including the pumpkins and gourd below (~$10), totaled $71.53!
As a side note, I used the Instagram app on my iPhone to take all of these pictures. If you have an iPhone and haven’t used this app, it’s free and definitely worth checking out!
