One of the things I most missed while living at our previous place, was the lack of Farmer's Market in the area.
I dreamed about the fresh eggs, the delicious produce and the ability to get raw milk. Now I know there is a lot of controversy about the raw milk, some say it's dangerous and it could be bad for you, others can't help but talk about the benefits and how much healthier it is to drink.
I'm one of those, I truly believe that it's healthier for you, and the taste is nothing like you've ever had.
Luckily for us, one of the things we can look forward to now is the Farmer's Market that runs every.single.Saturday from May to October. That made me so happy you just have no idea.
We've been here almost 3 weeks so this morning I decided it was time to head on up there and see what they had.
Oh goodness, let me quickly tell you that aside from the Farmer's Market part, they also have a flea market where anyone can set up free of charge to sell their goods. I mean, really, a flea market AND a farmer's market, I don't know about you but I can't think of a better way to spend my weekend morning.
This is my haul, and I could have left with a lot more but it was the first time there and I was so overwhelmed by all the goodness around me that I decided to just start small.
First thing that caught my eye, a table run by a very sweet farm family who were selling.......raw cow's milk and raw goat's milk. NO WAY!
I grabbed a gallon of the raw cow's milk for $5. I can't get over how delicious this milk is, it's so creamy, so lovely, it's hard to describe.
My Nicholas who is the milk lover in the family has been guzzling it down, he says it's best thing he's ever had.
I plan on making butter in the morning, as well as some cheese. Just look at that delicious cream at the top already.
They were also selling this yummy cheese, it's SO SO good.
Also grabbed two dozen fresh eggs for $4. That is a steal.
Something really neat I found out the other day, is that there are quite a few Mennonite around the area. When we lived here in the past I would always see the families up at Walmart shopping for groceries, but I never thought anything about it.
When I was up at Walmart last week I saw them again and after doing a little research, and also thanks to my friend Anna on facebook, I found out that there are quite a few of them in Grandview. Guess I'll be scouting that area more LOL
Anyway, all this just to tell you that I came across a table with a very sweet Mennonite lady selling produce, and bought this bag of beans from her. Plan to return and get more of her stuff next week.
Something else that caught my eye were these organic gorgeous sweet corn on the cob, grabbed a baker's dozen for $4. Not bad at all.
Nothing makes me happier than buying fresh produce straight from the farms and I'm thrilled to know that I have it available just down the road.
