Market Day!

This weekend the Coldspring Market was outdoors. So many more vendors! There was wine, an herbalist who had tinctures and honey and maple syrup,and there were a few plant people.
I had $100 dollars to spend, and I spent $160... I must remember that if it is a meat week I have to have more than usual. At least until we can go berry picking for canning. The majority of our money went to strawberries this week, and I literally bought ALL the strawberries that the seller had, so I don't mind paying full price for the flat.

$75 to Madura Farms
1 flat of strawberries- 8 quarts
1 lb mushrooms
1/2 lb of spinach
4 tomatoes
$5.50 to All You Knead
oat loaf
$20 to Full Moon Farms
2 lbs chop meat
1 lb stew meat
$60 to the winery (on debit card)
4 bottles of wine
we will eat: flat iron steak (from last meat day) with rice and asparagus (from last week)
scallops over spinach salad
chili and french fries
tortellini and salad
Friday we leave on a camping trip so we'll not get to the market this week.
It was a canning weekend- how could it not be with 8 quarts of strawberries sitting on the table? Stay tuned to see what we did with those!

Umm, sounds like you need to bring extra money when it's a WINE week, not a meat week - that's where your extra money went!

true but what i meant was that i spent the majority of the money on berries, thus not having lots left over for meat- most of the stalls at our market take only cash. the wine people are smart and take cards!
