First of all, it's a lot bigger than it was when I was a kid, when it was just a row of eight-ten farms selling fruit and vegetables. Now I'd say that only half of the sellers had fruits and vegetables. There were bakers. There was one stand that made fresh crepes, right next to another that sold shave ice. An Indian man sold Naan and jars of prepackaged Indian spices - that was quite different. But my favorite was the guy selling frozen Chinese dim sum. Dim sum! At the farmers' market! How random, but also awesome. I bought a bag of pork buns and another of shrimp dumplings.
Naturally, there was a guy selling kettle korn. (There's always a guy selling kettle korn.) I had to buy a bag of it. That stuff is just addictive, so light and crunchy and salty-sweet.
There were golden raspberries, which I've never seen before. They taste more or less like 'normal' red raspberries. I wonder where they came from.
I think by the end of the trip, we spent nearly $40. About half of that was for my Mom, but still. I had expected to spend less than ten dollars just getting some snacks to nibble on. Oops. Food is expensive.
