Saturday Morning with my Mom :)

        Every once and a while I go to farmers market with my mom on Saturday mornings.  Today we went to get some of the last tomatoes of the season.  We had so much fun, here are some of the things we enjoyed.  The Raleigh Farmer's Market is located on, 1201 Agriculture St. - Raleigh, North Carolina 27603, and is open Monday thru Saturday 5:00am - 6:00pm and Sundays 8:00am - 6:00pm.




 
 
Annelore's German Bakery was our first stop, they have the best soft pretzels and cheese bread you can find.  It's a must shop at the Farmer's Market.
 
 
Next we took a look around and my mom spotted the tomatoes that she wanted, they were from Tart's Farm, in Dunn, North Carolina.  They also had some yummy looking cucumbers and yellow squash.
 
 


 
 
After we paid for our tomatoes we came across some beautiful peppers at the stand for Walker Farm which is in Franklinville, North Carolina.  These peppers were so pretty I wish I knew some recipes so that I could have bought some.  I really loved how they displayed these, the colors are amazing :)


 
 
Next up we had to have some more peaches, unfortunately we are getting to the end of peach season :(  However, that means we are also close to the start of apple season. YUMMY :)




Our peaches came form Johnson's Farm in Candor, North Carolina.  I can't wait to eat some, we get peaches from this stand at least once a year.  They are always the best of the season.  As I said it is the just becoming the start of apple season so while we did not get any apples today we will be in the near future.  I think we are going to try some from Perry Lowe Orchard's.  They sure do look good.




As we were checking out all of the veggies I saw the flowers, they were so pretty.  I wish I had flower money today. There is always a stand selling fresh flowers when you go to the Farmers market, I have gotten a bunch in the past and they brighten up any room nicely, watch out for the bees though you are outside :)




After we checked out the outdoor vendors we headed to the indoor area to see if they had anything we wanted in there. Sure enough my mom and I have a sweet spot for fruit slices. So we stopped at The Berry Patch to get some.
 
 
 
 
Then we headed over to the Lu Mil Vineyard, they have Muscadine Cider Slushies that are o so good. I am not a wine person but I bet anyone who is would love this stand.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Here are a few other pictures from the Farmer's Market.
 
 
 
 


 
 
P.S. If you have never tried Moravian Cookies you are seriously missing out.
 
 
Last but not least we finished our morning by stopping by the Krispy Kream store on Person St. It is Krispy Kream's 75th birthday this year.  The donuts were soooooooooooo good.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Enjoy,
