Farmers Market Baskets

I have been wanting to blog about this for a while and since I have promised info to so many of you, now is as good of time as any. Our church is a drop off point for Farmers Market Baskets - a business that collects local produce. We started taking advantage of it not long ago and have thoroughly enjoyed it.

This beautiful confetti of a salad was full of many of the goods we have gotten and the croutons were a special treat - Ina Gartin's recipe if you are interest and SO easy. We went to Brad and Amy's this weekend and since Brad is quite the cook, we offered to bring the salad. His food was wonderful and this salad a nice compliment.

Just to give you an idea of what you get in our last basket we got apples, pears, oranges, lettuce, limes, avacado, carrots, broccoli, onions and cilantro - all for $18.00. It is wonderful and it motivates us to eat more produce, get creative with our meals and shop local as well. So... if you are interested in learning more or joining up just go to We promise, you won't be disappointed.

Yay! Thank you!! I am definitely going to check it out. It looks like there is a pick up in Powder Springs that is only 10 miles from my house. I think that is closer than going down 278! Oooh. I'm excited. The only problem is their pick-up is from 1-3. Maybe I can get my mom to do it. :) hehe
