Today at the Greensboro Farmers' Curb Market

Today is Berry Day at the Greensboro Farmers' Curb Market, which means that Cheesecakes by Alex is preparing blueberry pancakes for 600 lucky people!

I did some grocery shopping to supplement the groceries I bought at Deep Roots Market earlier this week.
Here's what I bought:

  • Organic free-range chicken wings from W&S Peterson Family Farms

  • A small coconut tart and a small spinach tart from a woman on the first aisle from the back - darn it, what is her name? Somebody help me out, here. Norah Glantz? Anyway, they are a regular treat for us on Saturday mornings.

  • Yukon Gold potatoes from Weatherhand Farm.

  • Shiitake mushrooms from Dark Hollow Farm.

  • Jalapeno pear relish from Doc Lee.

  • Dreamsicle soap from Mimi's Soaps.

  • Two basil plants, since my basil is growing too slowly to suit me.

It's great to know where your food is grown and produced. Putting a face with the food is what makes Slow Food so exciting for me!
