Even though I live in a treeless dustbowl, we have a pretty awesome weekend market.
The Downtown Art Market happens the second Saturday of each month.
which didn’t happen.
This was a “Texas Caviar” bean salad – chickpeas, black-eyed peas, corn, peppers, onions and cilantro. Honestly, I didn’t love it. It needed something.
This might be the ugliest photo of all time, but I had to share it. My most exciting purchase at the market was this butternut squash for $1. Score. I’ve never even cooked with butternut squash! I need ideas…
The local food bank was selling produce from their farm, like the butternut squash. Other produce purchased – baby okra, eggplant and zucchini.
I also bought some Jalapeño Peach Jam and didn’t take its portrait. Picture a Mason jar with pale peach and pepper seed contents. Sounds gross, but it is actually great!
A few artist had booths, but I was only in a food mood. I did pick up a few business cards for Etsy shop stalking, though.
Any ideas what I should do with the butternut squash?
