North Adams Farmers Market

It turns out that the closest local grocery store (which is very, very close) does not carry some fundamental items in their teensy produce aisle. I also just learned that it's the most expensive chain in the area.

So, I went on a grocery store adventure this morning to the next town over. As I was nearing the store, I caught sight of the farmers market — this was perfect, since most of my list involved produce! I have no idea what the cost of my produce would have been if I bought it at the grocery store, but it certainly would have been more than the $13 I spent for the following items: onions, potatoes, tomatoes, jalapenos, green peppers, leeks, zucchini, squash, and...these super cool burgundy beans!

The farmers market in my own town doesn't open until noon on Saturdays. Who wants to food shop in the middle of a Saturday? Aren't farmers early to rise?!
