I haven't been to a farm in quite awhile and there's really no excuse because we have MANY. We are surrounded by farming country and Southern Arizonans have a strong yearning for things organic.
Cute little market, not a lot of vendors as the 100 degree heat factors into it.
Got to see Amtrak on a morning run...
And a couple of freighters...
Bought some herbed goat cheese which was made from Wednesday's goat milk ~ yummy!
Also picked up a new basil plant and peppermint plant...
Next stop was the farmer's market at Plaza Palomino...
Sadly, there were few vendors compared to their normal draw as the center is undergoing renovation.
I managed to snag a loaf of ciabatta from Barrio Bread ~ addicting!!
On Sunday, Kiki joined me and we traveled up the Avenue to St. Phillip's Plaza for their Sunday market.
By far, this was the best ~ HUGE with everything from organic eggs to organic meats and everything in between...soaps, lotions, potions, beans, lentils, breads, cheeses, veggies, gluten, vegan, you name it!
We had a lovely morning and while I had purchased my goat cheese yesterday, I found a few things I just couldn't resist ~
|organic delights ~ heirloom tomatoes, japanese eggplant, and avocado|
|lentil blend soup and a kalamata olive loaf for my sweet man|
|hydroponic oak leaf lettuce|
I want to share one more thing with you, dear friends....my sweet, dear heart Debbie celebrated her birthday on August 21st. Since I was still coming around from the vertigo, we celebrated her special day last Friday.
A very special luncheon at....
located in the historic Hotel Congress, downtown Tucson....

And I'm wishing all of you a most lovely end-of-the-month week, as well. I'll be thinking of you and sending you blessings!
