Farmers' Market Goodies

This morning we visited the locally famous Carrboro Farmers' Market and came back with some colorful, tasty veggies and beautiful flowers.

We have only picked one of our heirloom tomatoes to date (I am letting it ripen in the window sill above the kitchen sink), so I wanted to stock up on the gorgeous varieties of tomatoes from the market in case our plants don't produce too well this year. I bought pink heirlooms, mini cherokee purple tomatoes, and sungolds.  Along with the tomatoes I decided to pick up some little orange sweet peppers and banana peppers.

The flowers were also home grown and look wonderful on my new farmhouse dining table.

Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. Beautiful flowers! I wish the farmers markets I go sold flowers.
    What will you be making with the tomatoes? I've got a few sitting on my window sill from my garden too.

    Hope you had a wonderful weekend!

  2. Hi Michelle! I love home-grown tomatoes too.....I made a "roasted tomato, olive, and bread" dish on Sunday that was very yummy. I also plan to make BLT's, tomato and mozzarella caprese salad and do some canning to make some salsa.
