Josh and I rolled out of bed early for once this Saturday and hit up the Franklin Farmers Market. It was kind of an exploratory mission to see if we could stick in our current grocery budget and still support local farmers (did we ever).
This is definitely going to be our new Saturday tradition. Even though I love love LOVE sleeping in on Saturdays, it’s worth it. We loved getting to talk to the farmers, and even got tips on how to best take care of some of the herbs we already have. Also? We got to eat this, the greatest biscuit of all time:
It was a biscuit with the most tender piece of spicy fried chicken I’ve ever eaten, honey drizzle, and homemade pickles.
Pretty sure Josh and I were both dancing as we inhaled it. This will be our new Saturday breakfast, I can tell. It came from a brand new food truck called Biscuit Love, and holy moly, worth every penny.
We also got herbs, spinach, colorful cauliflower, local honey, fresh peas (I tracked down and grabbed the very last bunch), garlic scapes, eggs, pork chops, radishes, and squash. Whew. Here’s our haul:
Oh, and we ate fresh strawberry glazed donuts.
Yeah, I’d say it was a success.
Anyone else a big fan of their local farmers market?
We love our farmers!
