Athens Farmers Market

 I just got back from the Athens Farmers Market! It was lovely in every sense of the word and a highlight of my week. I brought home multi-colored cherry tomatoes, Swiss chard, figs, one red and one yellow bell pepper, a loaf of naturally leavened whole wheat bread, and some basil. I also talked to some gentlemen from the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences Cooperative Extension. They are master gardeners and had some great materials about gardening in this region. I can't wait to dig up my little veggie/herb patch! Today would be the perfect day for it (overcast and not so darn hot!), but alas, I have no tools. Must find some loaners . . .

What were your farmers market finds today?
