Went to the Chapel Hill Farmer’s Market today. This market is smaller and I don’t know everyone as much, but there is cheese I can afford- made out of goat’s milk. I’ve had some kind of allergy stuff going on this week, so trying to go cow’s milk free for a little while and see if that was the culprit. I got 3 types of goat’s milk cheeses: a cherve, a gouda w/ caraway seeds, and one called “sweet ash” which is kind of like a brie. I am hoping that life will not have to be completely without cheese for me because that would be really sad.
So anyways, here’s what I got:
3 types of goat’s milk cheese: $15
Mixed cherry tomatoes and “fairy tale” eggplants: $6
Best looking peaches of the season: $4
Leeks and onion: $4.85
Grand Total: $29.85
Freebies this week (from the lovely Susie Murdoch) 2 cantaloupes, 1 honeydew (which I salvaged and froze for smoothies), some figs (that I dried in the dehydrator) and some oat groats/steel cut oats (gonna see if they will sprout…). I would have taken their picture, but out electric was out for about 10 hours the day I brought them home and then they had to be dealt with straight away.
Did not get to get any canning tomatoes at the little markets this week- so I’m gonna head out to Raleigh early tonight in hopes of getting some to do tomorrow and Monday on my days off.
