My Produce Bounty for the Week

My Produce Bounty for the Week

I’ve discovered the most wonderful roadside fruit and vegetable stand. They’re a one-stop-shop farmers’ market; the local farmers deliver their produce to their stand every day, so there’s a huge variety of vegetables and fruits (as well as dates and nuts) to choose from. Their prices are very low because their overhead is low—directly from the local farmers to the roadside stand keep the prices low, and the freshness high. When I first discovered them, I’d often stop by later in the day and they’d be sold out of most of their produce (clearly, I’m not the only one who’s discovered their low prices and high quality produce!). Now, I go there at least once or twice a week, and I always go early so I get what I want.

Any guesses as to how much I paid for all these fruits and veggies? Here is a list of what I got today:

1 large bunch of broccoli
Half flat of strawberries
10 pickling cucumbers (my absolute favorite)
5 Italian round zucchinis
2 mangos
1 pineapple
3 large onions (with green stems attached)
1 pound cherry tomatoes
1 pound string beans
5 _large_ Haas avocados
1 large bunch kale
2 large bunches of radishes
8 oz. dates
