Autumn Farmer's Market




Matt and I spent the morning in Ann Arbor, which is always one of our favorite things to do on a Saturday morning. We had brunch at Cafe Zola, which I unfortunately lost before we even left :( and then headed over to the Farmer's Market. Fall is so bountiful at the market - see for yourselves!

Heirloom tomatoes and peppers

Pumpkins!!

Sweet bell peppers

There's something about the buzz of October at the market...farmers and vendors squeezing the last lucrative weeks out of their harvest time, and people crowding elbow-to-stroller-to-push cart to get a look at what goods await them. Aside from chilly fingers and noses, we ended up coming home with:

-Michigan Maple Syrup
-Fresh raspberries to freeze for smoothies!
-1 Butternut squash
-Honey Crisp apples
-Michigan strawberry and raspberry jam
-Sweet red and green peppers

I'd say that's a good way to start an October weekend! Not sure what baby Smith thinks about it all yet...at least it let me know about breakfast!

Fall also makes me feel cozy and crafty, and that means crochet and sewing! I have many a baby project up my sleeve, and am about to snuggle up with a ball of yarn and get busy! Updates to come :)
