I knew I wouldn’t let too many weekends pass before I went back to this place. This time, I went a little later than normal and it was obvious that I missed out! No blueberries were left. I was really sad about that.
Anyway, I did see some really good looking produce that I wish I could have brought home. But, I had to prioritize. I tried to get things that I use to try new recipes and foods that I know taste so much better when grown locally and picked hours or a couple of days before selling.
ANd yes, I’m a photo geek. I just enjoyed the bright colors for pictures.
I brought home a few things.
- peaches from Chilton County, Alabama—said to rival the great Georgia peach 😉
- tomatoes from a few miles away
- baby eggplant
- red pepper
- butternut squash—so much better local grown.
- honey-not pictured
- apple pie—not pictured because it was devoured before I got a camera close to it.
No trip to Birmingham is complete without a hop over to Whole Foods.
Granola, unsweetened cranberries, can soup, fresh parm, quinoa
yogurt, Amazing Grass, bee pollen, bowl of chicken tortilla soup and chicken salad plate. I had those for lunch. I could have eaten my weight in chicken salad and grapes. I love their homeade soups too. I can’t wait for fall when they have cider and soup!
