Farmer’s Market & WIAW

We hit up the Farmer’s Market today…such a perfect day to be outside AND we just got back from PEI to an empty fridge. It wasn’t a hard choice to get some of our fruit and veggies at the Market and then a few extras we needed from the grocery store.

Kentville’s (Nova Scotia) outdoor Farmer’s Market:

Don’t forget to check out Jenn at Peas and Crayons plus all the other WIAW posts. Lots of great eats!

With both girls home (Lilly’s on vacation) we packed up and went together:

Yum! Local food!

What I bought and ate last Wednesday:

Pesto beef pasta with local garlic and cheese ($7.50)

If I could, I would buy this every week.

Amazing pasta - from the Pasta Guy!

Do you go to your local Farmer’s Market each week/month?

We do almost every week!

Any foods you MUST buy each week?

Blueberries at the moment.

What’s your favourite in-season food right now?

Blueberries and Corn on the Cob!

Cheers, Piper.

  1. Haven’t been to the Kentville market but we did do the one in Halifax and also one in Moncton when we did our Maritimes tour in 2008. I love Farmer’s Markets and we do visit our favorite local ones every couple of weeks, too. Blueberries are fabulous this year!

    • I love the Halifax market…it’s grown so much since it moved to Pier 21. Wolfville (NS) has a great market too. The only other one I’ve been to is Charottetown, PEI market – it’s really nice too.
