Farmers Market Tips But No Wine Today:(


Sitting here this afternoon, reading everyone's blogs, I came across a great article that Lucy at Boulder Belt Eco Farms posted a link. Lucy & Eugene's booth at the Oxford Farmers Market is one of my favorite. They are very hard working dedicated folks and have a variety of vegetables that will "knock your socks off"! The article is from Plenty Magazine and gives some very good tips about shopping at your Farmers Market. The article may answer some of your questions regarding shopping local. Tomorrow I will have a wine review and a recipe for Corn and Cucumber Salad containing all the goodies from the market this past weekend.

Cheers!

Hey Deb, If you are missing wine today sometime you should try some wines from the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia. To answer your question those were vineyards that you saw in the photo on my site. We have over 50 wineries in the Okanagan Valley with some world class wines. You would have to check it out on line to see which wines and from which vineyards won the awards...there are many. Then they would have to also be available in your area.

Oh wow, I look forward to checking out that article! I posted some tomato stuff today. Thought you'd like to know, since I know you've been inundated lately!
