Judy at The Road to Here came up with this wonderful Farmer's Market Challenge. Pop over to her site to see the other participants farmer's markets.
Austin has several Farmer's Market locations. This one is in a high-school football stadium parking lot. The market opens at 9 AM on Saturday and closes at 1 PM.
There are quite a few cars at 10 AM on this Saturday morning.
This is kind of cool as you walk into the market: a rock climbing wall. When I took the photo, the climbers are girls not over 10 or 11.
A variety of vendors and wares are represented.
This vendor appears to be the youngest in the family business. :D
Not sure I want to eat buffalo but may get some jerky the next time. I am not very adventurous when it comes to trying something different to eat.
Fresh mushrooms .... YUM! Nothing was on the upcoming week's menu requiring mushrooms but know where to go when there is.
If I ever lose that 20 pounds, I'll be getting one of these original fabric designs by its vendor.
I am waiting on some canteloup to ripen in my own garden.
These are all natural cleaning agents.
My dad loved boiled okra, ugh. The vendor told me people would eat slimy, boiled okra because it helped with arthritis. Short of it being the fountain of youth, I'll pass.
What are these plants? Anyone know? Plant frogs are placed in a hole drilled in the rock, water is added, and the plant is stuck on the frog.
I like red so when I see it, a photo is taken.
A lot of people raise goats in Central Texas. Handcrafted goat-milk soap is divine.
I bought these tomatoes and may I tell you how good the tomato, provolone, and onion on whole wheat bread were?
I picked up a few cucumbers. Still waiting on some cucumbers to appear on the plants in my garden. Wonder if it is too late?
Aren't these strange looking?
How about some hibiscus iced tea?
Not to brag too much, but Central Texas has the tastiest peach you've ever put in your mouth.
They are addicting.
Don't remember his name, but isn't he beautiful?
Adios, my friends. (Not my vehicle but, well, it is red.)
Until next time, Gob bless.
