Farmers Market

Last Saturday we took a trip into downtown Dallas to shop around at the Dallas Farmers Market. The weather was PERFECT for spending some time outside as a family of 3!

Before we shopped around we ate some amazing food from two different vendors. We had Mexican food and BBQ, two of our favorite things to eat! Let me tell you....its was AMAZING!!! We even learned that Guy Fieri and Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives had been to these "dives" recently and the episode will air on Food Network this Spring. We will be on the look out and would highly reccomend both of these places to anyone.
After eating we enjoyed shopping and sampling some excellent produce from local farmers. We both agreed that it felt so good to support these local Texas farmers and eat food that came right off the farm. We bought a cantaloupe, a honeydew melon, strawberries, a cross between a tangerine and an orange, tomatoes, onions, jalapenos, red and green peppers, a pineapple and a cilantro plant. Everything was so fresh and delicious and sure makes our refrigerator colorful. (We are quickly going through our purchases and will be making a trip back soon and often!)

After we bough the produce we headed over to the nurseries to check out the beautiful plants and flowers. We ended up with two hanging baskets with pink and purple bougainvilleas and some geraniums to plant on our back patio! I could have spent a fortune on flowers though!

It was a really great day. Our little man slept the whole time but I know he enjoyed the fresh air and time with Mommy and Daddy! ;)
