Farmers Market Bounty...

This year, with our move, I didn't plant any vegetables.  Usually, I plant at least a few tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers and squash.  We have missed those home grown veggies, but have had the wonderful consolation of living very close to a fantastic State Farmers Market.  In other places we have lived there have been local Farmers Markets that are open once, or twice a week, but we are lucky to have access 6 days a week.  Not only do they have a great selection of locally grown produce, there are also great organic cheeses, meats and  several stalls with plants.  I really love the Pee Dee State Farmers Market

This was my haul for toady's trip: okra, tomatoes, peaches, red potatoes, green beans and a huge cantalope. Tomorrow I will slow cook the green beans and potatoes (southern style with a "side of meat"), fry some chicken, fry up  that yummy okra, slice up the cantelope and tomatoes and add home made buttermilk biscuits and follow that with fresh peach cobbler (nothing has calories or cholesterol on Sundays, right?).  Now that is what I call Southern Sunday Dinner!

May I please invite myself to dinner? :) I would love all of that. We are having a mostly veggie dinner tonight too. Our counter is looking like yours (from our garden) only with different veggies. Love summer meals. Lucky you with your nice Farmer's Market.

I love a good Farmer's Market. What time is Sunday dinner? If I leave now... :-) It sounds delicious. My kind of Southern cookin'. xoxo

It's great that you are so close to a farmer's market that is open all week. Your meal for Sunday sounds scrumptious. If I get in the car now, I should be there just in time to eat!

Your veggies look great, I wish I lived closer to a farmer's market. And yes, Sunday dinner sounds delish! Enjoy!
