Saturday at the Market

The Baker and The Dalmatian kindly stopped at the farmers' market 
very early this morning.

I heard, by the grapevine (grape tomato vine?) that our 
favorite farmer would have a few tomatoes today.

They came home with these!  

Along with crisp little cucumbers
and young squash.

I envy those of you who live in areas with
lush and long growing vegetables.

Here in the midwest, 
we are just beginning to enjoy 
Mother Nature's gifts.

Have a great weekend!!


  1. I can't think of a better morning than picking up few things at the framers market. I know you are going to put something together that will be delicious.

    Have a great weekend.


  2. Lovely gifts indeed!! My garden is producing oodles of plump tomatoes, in 5 different varieties. My neighbor was eager to tend my garden for me while we are away this week so she could enjoy the veggies!!!
    I am sitting here in bed with my coffee, looking at our beloved Big Bear Lake. Listening to my little grands feeding the ducks outside with their happy giggles. Life is sweet!!

  3. Love those little pitty pan squash. You've got the makings of a tasty veg dish!

  4. Enjoy the goodies! I see the squirrels ate my two ripening tomatoes and the rabbits ate all of my string bean plants... ugh. Gotta find a Farmer's Market myself:@)

  5. ooh I love those squash...I must go get me some... and I love the golden tomatoes too... full of summer sunshine!

  6. Yum, I can feel those exploading in my mouth and taste the goodness. Looks like you have a good start to dinner.

  7. Ohh the squash looks I crave for some :). You should also disclose how you ate those lovely vegetables? A stew>?

  8. I agree with Velva, now work your magic like you always do with your beautiful ingredients!

  9. Bonnie,

    Looks like you had a good time at the market and came back with some luscious goodies. Those little squash are too cute.
    Our tomatoes are still green on the vine. Maybe next week....


  10. i would be popping those little beauties like grapes. and those cucumbers looks so tender, i like them just eaten to with a little salt

  11. I love those little golden patty pans! :)

  12. Love those pattypans:) I stopped at my DSIL's garden:) I think fresh veggies ..are just as pretty as fresh a different way~

  13. I didn't go to the farmer's market today. It is the first Saturday I've missed when in town. I just couldn't get out and about early. I have a few tomatoes and cucumbers left from last week. Bonnie

  14. Oh...we do have tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, green beans, peppers, eggplant, cabbage, watercress ... and we have the loquats, oranges, figs, pears, apples, strawberries, raspberries, peaches, sloes, plums, grapes, blackberries ....(I had to go to Google translator...because there were some names I did not now.

    Have a blessed Sunday

  15. You really scored big at the market. No tomatoes here yet, but we have a few tiny, tiny ones on our vine.

    Happy weekend,

  16. It looks like the Baker had a great day at the market. When we left there were no local tomatoes yet, but other crops were coming in with a vengeance. have a wonderful weekend, Bonnie. Blessings...Mary

  17. I can't wait for tomatoes to show up in our farmers' market but, because of the cool, wet spring it is still a few weeks away.

  18. I love summer's bounty of fresh fruit and vegetables! I have been enjoying peaches, cherries, corn on the cob and zucchini1

  19. At my favorite farmers' market, the vendors weren't even coming to market in the heat wave last week. Can't wait to see what I can find on my next visit! I feel badly for the farmers with this long drought.

  20. those young squash are so cute and I could think of so many things to make with them! I am jealous of your market run I don't get to go as often as i want with 2 young kids


I always enjoy hearing from you, my blogging friends.
