Farmer’s Market Deals

We have this huge farmer’s market about 10 minutes away. It’s not what you’d traditionally think of when you hear the words “Farmer’s Market.” Instead, it’s more of a huge warehouse with all kinds of produce, a big meat counter, a big fish counter, a lot of cheese, dairy products and some other packaged goods. They also make their own breads and muffins and have a large beer and wine selection.

  1. Those ARE great deals! I adore jicama – super refreshing!

  2. I’ve never really had jicama before. Is it hard to cut?
