Farmers Market Friends

This morning, I woke up to the coos and chatter of an almost five month old (such a sweetheart!). I fed him, grabbed some coffee, and we headed over to the Travelers Rest Farmers Market (a local favorite) to check out the various booths, food trucks, and live music. We met our friends Rachel and Lucy, and enjoyed walking around before heading over to the shade of the outdoor amphitheater to eat our Circa Doughnuts! Today’s flavors were Lavender Lemon and Early Grey with Charred Grapefruit. The grapefruit was our favorite! 

I also picked up some artisan Gouda cheese made from local raw milk, melons, and a cute little succulent for an upcoming birthday gift for someone. Rachel found some cute handmade earrings, fresh lettuce, and some fresh pastas and sauce for a quick meal later this week. 

I am finally starting to work on menu plans again, and I was looking forward to at least one more watermelon-feta salad this season. They were sold out of watermelon at the store this week, so I was excited to find this mammoth watermelon at the market–super sweet and only $5, plus it makes a great baby footrest.  If you haven’t checked it out, the TR Farmers Market is off of Highway 25, just outside of downtown TR, and open Saturdays 9 AM to 1 PM. For the perfect morning, bring some cash (not all vendors take card) and a cooler to fill with Farmers Market finds, then jump on over to the Swamp Rabbit Trail for a morning walk! Have a great weekend!
