Yesterday I finally visited my first North Carolina farmers' market! South Estes farmers' market is held every Tuesday and Saturday in the parking lot of A Southern Season, and it reminded me of the West Reading farmers' market back in PA. There were about 15 or 20 tents set up, and vendors sold a wide range of wares, from vegetables and pastry to flowers and compost materials. I didn't see anything that wasn't locally-produced.
I took home a half-dozen eggs, some beautiful tomatoes, and my favorite find of the day, a sumptuous orange marmalade roll. Mmmmm.
