Herkamp Park
FARMERS MARKET


First trip to the farmers market for this year
Was very happy to see a good number of vendors in the park
Fredericksburg isn't big so we don't have a huge market

We spoke to a lot of farmers,
Who got us very excited about CSA's and whats to come


***
Wild morels
Goats milk and meat
homemade butter
wild ginger and may apples
kiwi jam
Pumpkin butter
home canned tomatoes
free range chickens
fresh flowers
figs
***

We got there fresh out of bed and quite hungry
So sat in the park and indulged in the bakers mixed fruit coffee cake
Just heavenly...

Exchanged jaunty accusations of exchanging groundhogs
Back and forth between gardens...

***
And got quite a haul;
Crusty sourdough bread
Wild ramps
Strawberries
fresh little bantam eggs
Pumpkin butter
Asparagus
Poke salad
Chive and garlic cheese
Grass fed ground beef
Local bacon
Fantastic fruit coffee cake
***




I'm a happy girl...
