Friday Farmer's Market Haul

I don't work until 5, so I had time to get to market this morning. Here's what I got:

2 pounds of green beans
7 plum tomatoes
6 red onions
5 bulbs of garlic
3 limes
2 orange peppers
2 lemons
1 bunch of broccoli
1 red pepper
1 bag of baby carrots
1 plastic heart full of valentine's candy for The Boy

All for under $20. Not bad at all.

I'm feeling some guilt about the candy, though. None of it is vegan, and I knew that when I bought it. I've never been quite sure what to do when it comes to buying non-vegan things for other people. I've bought friends non-vegan lunches and dinners, and I'll get Doritos or something if The Boy wants it from the grocery store. I guess this isn't any different, really, so I'm not sure why I feel so much weirder about it this time. I guess I'm just getting more and more uncomfortable about my money benefiting companies and practices that I don't support. My one consolation is that at least the candy was from a local company and not Conglom-O.

I wish our farmer's market were open..fresh food, savings and local purchases..but they don't until April 1st. There is a small coop that has a weekly farmer's market year round but it's out of the way for me on a weeknight.

Yeah, I'm really lucky to have this market. It's indoors, so it's open year-round, and it's only about 4 blocks away from my house. It's awesome. We do not, however, have any co-ops that I know of.
