To Market, To Market

There is a little neighborhood farmers market which is open the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month.   On the 2nd  Saturday, there are produce vendors along with craft, bakery, and miscellaneous vendors which include vintage bicycles, jewelry, etc.   The 4th Saturday is just farmers, growers and artisan foods.  Their produce is local and organic.

So I took my friend Karen to check it out because I have been telling her how wonderful it is.  If you are in the Dallas area, here is their website  http://www.whiterocklocalmarket.com/   They are located near White Rock Lake at the Greenspot.  This is Karen checking out a jewelry booth, www.nekedesigns.com .  She bought a really pretty ring.

This weekend was the produce plus craft vendors, so there was lots to see… jewelry, homemade soaps, honey, cheese, coffee, breads,  not to mention lots of produce.

Here’s my loot..

sweet, organic blueberries picked the day before.  I decided to freeze them.

gorgeous tomatoes.  I bought four and gave two to my mom.

purple hull peas

Awesome cheese made in Granbury Texas.  I have been eating on this all week.

Beautiful handmade soaps.  I always buy these soaps.  I wish I had smellavision so you could fully appreciate how good they smell.  We had these in the back of the car and they perfumed the car all day.

The top soap was rosemary and fig.

My favorite coffee, Oak Cliff Coffee Roasters.  Roasted the day before, yum.  here is their website http://www.oakcliffcoffee.com/index_files/Page535.htm

After the farmer’s market, we headed to Oak Cliff to check out a plant nursery I had read about called  Repotted.  Isn’t that the best name?

It turned out to be an amazing find.  Such a cute shop in what was once a gas station.  Not to mention they were having a 25% off sale.  heh heh.

Here is my loot from Repotted.

An orange Esperanza.  I had only seen the yellow ones.

Lemon Verbena!!!!!!!!  I have been looking for Lemon Verbena all Spring and Summer at every nursery (about six-seven different ones) and was unable to find it until now.  I was soooo excited!

Crotons.  thinking ahead to Fall.  These were a great price.  I should have gotten 2 more.

 I also bought some seed packets, which I will show you later.   They also carry  Seeds of Change packets.   I already had seeds similar to what they had, so I didn’t purchase any.  But, I am glad to know they have  them.

Repotted also has an amazing assortment of organic treatments, soils, amendments, etc.  I will definitely be going back!

Is this not the cutest potting shed!  I so wish I had room for one. sigh.

Such a fun day!  Thanks, Karen.  I’m ready to go again!
