the farmers market...

we traveled to the big city on the 4th and visited the farmers market at pioneer park.
i've wanted to go forever and i talked big d into it. i have to search out vendors for the show...right?;D fun, fun, fun. loved it. there were so many great vendors and lots of fun food stands. i bought fresh made cheese from this lady and it was so yummy! we tasted fresh cherries and jams. the little ones got their faces painted and got balloon animals and drove dad crazy runnin around. the people watching at the market is not to be beat. so many different characters!! caputo's deli and grocery is right across the street so of course we had to go there...i love that place! i got some fresh parmesan and 'made in utah' fresh italian sausages and fresh fettucine noodles. that sausage was soooo good. we wandered into the tin angel cafe
but big d took one look at the menu and politely said, 'we can eat here if you want to but i can't see one thing here i would eat'. they have very fun gourmet food and that is not my man's cup o' tea. i'll be visiting there later...so we ended up at squatters. which was fine with me...they make a mean cobb salad. i told big d this was how i could spend every saturday. he agreed maybe that was a possibility when the two little ones are grown and gone and we don't have to deal with tantrums and pedophiles (my words, not his). point taken. speakin of the devil here are the two little hooligans right here...

dang those are some cute kids...

so people of utah...go support the farmers market and give the locals your business.
BUY LOCAL!

and i found a couple of awesome little vendors for the big show. so see there was a legit reason to drag my guy to the farmers market!;D
