As a wedding photographer, it is a rare treat to have a Saturday free. However, Mike’s parents are in town right now, so I kept my schedule clear for their visit and we headed down on Saturday with them and Jason to Houston’s Urban Harvest Farmer’s Market just off of 3000 Richmond. I decided to bring my camera gear along to photograph it all to document it for Mike’s cooking blog. We made plans to head out early because Mike wanted to make sure to get fresh yard eggs from one of the sellers there – they are so good, they always sell out fast! We picked up lots of yummy vegetables too, which Mike made into a cauliflower soup for lunch on Sunday, roasted cauliflower for dinner Sunday night, and there are some green onions and other items on the schedule for this week as well. Oh! And fresh, handmade cheese! Mmmm… cheese. Yum!
Mike was in charge of picking out the produce to buy, along with selecting the cheese. We were sure to pick up some Muenster, as that is one of Jason’s favorites!
There was so much gorgeous produce, and a few sellers with plants available as well. We might have to make an attempt at a garden this year!
One of my favorite things about going to the Farmer’s Market is getting to meet the people that grew the produce. This gentleman, the owner of Laughing Frog Farm in Hempstead, Texas, was just so nice, and happy to share information about the produce he grows!
We wrapped up the morning listening to good music and treating ourselves to crepes. Sticking to my Weight Watcher’s plan, I went for the Crepe Suzette – but between the crepe, butter & sugar, it probably wasn’t very point friendly! Good thing it was small, and I ate light for the rest of the day to make up for it!
