The market is back!

I'm so glad the Farmer's markets are back. I always go to the one in San Jose on a Friday lunchtime, but it is more to buy lunch and see what is in season. I actually buy fruit, bread and sometimes some other veg at the Morgan Hill market on Saturday. Today was the first day of the Morgan Hill market and it was packed! Not only were our old favorite stalls there but a few more new ones, and there were so many people it was almost too crowded. It was really good to see how many people were buying fresh local produce. Everything sold there comes from within a fifty mile radius, which is a lot closer than most food comes!

This time we bought flowers, which Mary busily arranged whilst at the table in the garden..



and a bunch of BIG sweet onions..





Then I finally saw one of the flowers had bloomed that I'd been waiting to open. Still no idea what it is!
