I love a good farmers market. Today though, I got to enjoy a farmers market in the sun, by myself with $20 in my pocket. It was total BLISS!
The market started with everyone lined up to get in. They opened the gate and we all started heading towards the different stalls that interested us. The first one that caught my eye was the jam! This lady makes over 400 different types of jam! Wow! She was so sweet and let me try her raspberry chocolate jam. It was delicious.
I went to the farmers market hungry so I was so exited to get some local biscotti from Biscottie Di Notte. I had to choose between almond, chocolate & espresso and cranberry. I chose almond biscotti then headed over to the Qualicum Roasters to get some coffee. I also drooled over Oh Happy Cake’s cakes and treats. Doesn’t their Chocolate Sauerkraut cake look fabulous?
There was so much fresh produce as well! I bought a tomato and made mozzarella and tomato with basil and olive oil for a snack later at home. There were also a lot of local crafts. There were t-shirts and baby clothes, pot scrubbers, pillows, wall hangings, dog toys and lots lots more! My favorite was a pillow that said “When’s Savasna?” (Savasna is a pose in yoga that you do at the end where you lay on the mat on your back and don’t move, relax your body and relax your mind.)
Man, sometimes I feel like that, don’t you?
