Urban Farm Visit

February 15th, 2013 at 05:21 pm

Bought some nice little "food splurges" from an urban farm in my area today:
Big bunch of golden beets ($3)
Huge bunch of broccoli florets ($5)
Half-dozen free range eggs ($3)
1-lb Longhorn hamburger ($8)

Total spend: $19

The hamburger is from a place less than an hour away. The veggies and eggs are produced on-site.

The prices are on the high side, but the food is delicious! DH had one of the eggs this evening and we both had some of the broccoli, and it is so fresh & much more flavorful than what we get at the supermarket. Tomorrow we will have oven-roasted beets. (The hamburger is in the freezer for later.)

I am NOT a Locavore. The whole "shop local" movement is just not my cup of tea. But I'm happy to support a small farmer once in awhile, and I enjoy learning about what is grown in my area. And of course we enjoy fresh local food products for the YUM factor.

Well, that was my weekend splurge. Do you have any planned?

    I think it is great that you are willing to support your local farmers like that, and I believe that it does lead to better food in general -- as well as some insurance that you are getting the freshest stuff available! Sounds delicious.
