Farmers Market: Groceries Week 2

Do you know that I have never really "shopped" for all of my produce at the farmers market. I have gone and got a couple of things on a whim, but it’s never been something I have done on a regular basis. One of the best things about living in So Cal is that we have Farmers Markets 365 days a year! Just in my local neighbor hood we have three, one on Thursday nights, one on Saturday mornings, and one on Sunday mornings.

So this morning I decided to hit up the one on Loma Linda to see what I could scrounge up ๐Ÿ™‚ I have always loved going to Farmers Markets, but still not sure what is the best deal.


I loved that I got to talk with the Farmers themselves and do some taste testing. 


I think I did pretty well. I walked away spending $12 ๐Ÿ™‚ IMG_6842

  • Kale-$1.00
  • 3 Avocados-$1.00
  • Broccoli-$.50
  • lots of tomatoes-$1.00
  • strawberries-$4.00
  • 2 mire lemons-$1.00
  • Fresh Baked
  • Whole Wheat
  • Honey Bread-$4.00  ๐Ÿ™‚


We are taking our bread machine back today ๐Ÿ™ I tried to make some bread in it last night and it was a complete FAIL!!! But I am glad I know now where I can get some bread!


I also stopped into our local grocery store (Stater Brothers) and picked up a few things.

  • bananas-$2
  • IMG_6841organic creamer-$1.99
  • eggs$2

  • fresh sliced ham-$1.50
  • 1 cucumber-$1

  • 1 sweet potato-$1
  • 3 bags of beans-$1.25 X3 
  • This bill was a total of $18.00

I am making chili this week ๐Ÿ™‚


So I spent a little over $30 for groceries this week..NOT BAD! I will do a full menu plan for next week on Monday ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh ya and I also got in a 8 mile HILLY run with my ladies this morning, FELT AMAZING! I am in love with the weather.


Could there be a better view?!  (also in the voice of Mr. Bing).



Hubby and I are going to run some errands together today and make lunch before we go. I think this might be our first weekend "day" off for the both of us is about a month ๐Ÿ™‚

P.S. The crazy dinner party madness starts tonight!!!
