Farmers Market Antics

Today, I went to the Adams Morgan Farmers Market at the corner of 18th and Columbia Rd NW. This market accepts WIC deductions and overall, it is much cheaper than other markets in the area. There are two suppliers so far, and in addition to selling produce, there are baked goods, james, relishes, salsas, a variety of nuts, and a number of herb plants and flora.

The picture on the left shows everything I got today for an unbelievable $12.20! If you can't make out, here's the list:

1 pint black cherries
3 red skinned potatoes
1 red onion
1 vidalia onion
1 bunch organic kale
1 zucchini/courgette
1 green pepper/capsicum
1 garlic bulb
3 peaches
4 roma tomatoes

I am currently pondering recipes for the week: perhaps barley risotto with kale stems, vidalia onion, and zucchini? Margherita pizza made on whole wheat tortillas? Roasted rosemary red skinned potatoes? Kale salad? Hmmmm...
