Farmer's Market

Yesterday, I read a post on Heather's Blog about a Farmer's Market downtown Denver that was open during the Winter. I really wanted to check it out so I was actually able to wake Marcos up before Noon (they closed at 2pm) to go check it out. I've been really trying to buy organic and locally grown so I loved that I discovered this place.

What I loved about this was that everything was grown in Colorado and they had some great things. From fresh milk to fresh eggs to homemade apple butter and applesauce with no sugar, homemade pasta, spices, and cheese.

We knew that we were going to go eat lunch afterward so I wasn't able to buy any fresh milk or cheese, but hopefully will soon. We did however buy some delicious, fresh baked bread.

First, I bought a whole-grain roll (didn't buy the whole loaf since I didn't think I could eat it all myself this week) and it was so soft and delicious. It's covered with different seeds on top and was very good.

Then we found foccacia bread. Oh boy did I have to buy it when I noticed it. It smelled delicious and had melted cheese, olive, and jalapenos on top. I ate just a piece to try it out and I'm getting ready to make sandwiches with it today for lunch. Yum!

Also, Heather found out about this Farmer's Market from Ashley's post. Go and check it out! She posted some great pictures and recipes!
