As promised, I walked over to the Select Michigan Farm Market at the Capitol today. As luck would have it, my order from Amazon arrived via UPS this morning and I was able to use one of my new Baggu Totes to haul my goodies back to the office.
And goodies I got:
- 1 bunch baby bok choy
- 1 bunch biggest chives I’ve ever seen
- 1 bunch water spinach
- 1 bunch pea pod leaves (from snow peas)
- pint of sweet cherries
- 4 ears sweet corn
- pint of grean beans
- a jar of Sicilian meat-topping sauce (tomat-y doesn’t have meat in it) from Nicky’s Family Recipes
- A bar of lemon verbena hand-made soap by Kapow Soaps of from Frankenmuth.
All for about $20!
I think tonight’s dinner is going to involve some fresh picked sweet corn and then later this weekend, we’ll have a little Asian-themed dinner. I haven’t done stir-fry in ages!
The Market was apparently a big hit, from the volume of people there. I did go at lunch time and it was pretty crowded. Two places ran out of food before lunch was over: the Fresh Lake Whitefish Company (who are also at the Lansing CIty Market on Saturdays) and Sweetie-Licious Pie Pantry of DeWitt. I’ve driven by Sweetie-Licious before but did not realize they also have soups and sandwichs until I looked at that website. Now I want to go right now to have a Chicken Salad Sandwich followed by a Ginger Lemon Clover cookie.
I wish I’d had more cash on me because Farming for our Future had the cutest kids t-shirts. Of course, I probably need a kid to put said clothes on, too.
It will be exciting to see what more they can do for the September 18th event.
