Just getting home from errands and the opening of the St. Paul Farmers’ Market. I am finally energized about the arrival of spring (despite the cool rain falling this morning). The downtown market is now open Saturday 6 AM-1 PM and Sunday 8 AM-1 PM until mid November and filled with good things. Getting here in the first few weeks is my favorite. All winter long there is honey, meats and eggs as well as pasta, salsa and other preserves for sale. Slowly as the summer market gains speed, new arrivals appear: bedding plants, greens, and onions. I have to drop in just to make sure I don’t miss a grand entrance!
And here’s the treasures that made it home in my market bag:
Sunrise dried pasta and three trout filets from Brook Park Fish Farm. I have a plan for these later in the weekend!
