Sunday Market

Sacramento is all about local food sources, "Farm-to-Fork" being a big concept around here, especially since there are so many farms in the surrounding areas. One of the big related attractions is the big farmer's market that happens downtown every week under the freeway, so we went last Sunday.

We thought someone might ask us to kindly leave since we didn't bring a single reusable canvas bag (most people had several, some brought their own roll-y cooler bags that looked like suitcases), but no one did. 

It was really impressive. So many booths with different fruits and veggies, which are the normal farmer's market fare. They also had some standard items that are always fun to look at, like eggs, fresh flowers, honey and jams.

But they also had things I'd never seen sold at a farmer's market, like rice (home grown?), LIVE crayfish and fresh seafood. 

I bought these hydrangea because I obviously couldn't not.

Afterward we walked across the street to go to a big downtown park.

We heard some music coming from the far corner of the park and saw some tents set up, so we went over to check it out. We ended up eating lunch there and June wasn't having my tamales or Michael's tacos, so her lunch consisted entirely of corn on the cob.

Perfect Sunday morning!
