Yes, its true. The downtown farmer's market, normally located on 104 Street, is usually only open from the May long weekend through the first half of October as its an outdoor marketplace. However, thanks to Sharon over at Only Here for the Food, I learned recently that they've opened up the market at City Hall on Saturdays through the spring. Mommikins and I were very excited to be able to wander the albeit slightly smaller venue and see what tempted us. We didn't come away with a lot but we're still happy. Mom picked up a honeysuckle toy for the kittehs to play with. It was barely out of the bag when Nero jumped on it!
|What do you mean, you only bought ONE?|
We also split a bag of fresh beets and a bag of fresh parsnips; we then treated ourselves to a sample bag of delicious cookies from Confetti Sweets. I don't remember seeing them before at the 104 street location but we to be fair we didn't visit a lot last summer. When we got home, I opened the bag and the first cookie on top was a cranberry oatmeal. OMG. If you find your self in the downtown market this summer, I INSIST you try one of their cookies!
|What is there to say, they're soft and delicious!|
