We made it over to the St. Paul Farmer’s Market this weekend along with nearly every other person who lives in the Twin Cities. It was so crowded, we could barely get our little tiny stroller through the crowds. (We had considereing bringing the backpack carrier, but figured it wouldn’t be THAT crowded. It was.) Maybe it was all of the wagons being dragged through the crowd, really? You need that huge wagon for a three aisle wide market? I love seeing the community support our local farmers, but it’s frustrating when we’re trying to actually buy some groceries!
Anyway, enough ranting. We loaded up on fresh and local rhubarb, asparagus, broccoli, eggs and chicken. I can’t wait to try to make the asparagus we had in New York, and to make some rhubarb muffins. If you have a recipe I should try please let me know, I’m having a hard time finding a reliable one online.
If you’ve never been to the St. Paul Farmer’s Market you really should go. All the vendors and products are local. And there is so much more than just produce! There’s Bison, Cave-aged cheese, Handmade Soap, Fresh Egg Rolls, Plants, Herbs, Handmade Sweaters, Bags, Fresh Bread, I could go on. Just make sure you don’t bring your big, huge wagon.
