Provo Farmers Market!

I had such a good time at the Farmers Market on Saturday. Its in Pioneer Park in Provo Center and 500 West... I always thought of it as that place the homeless lived.... I only saw a few of them. The City must have giving them a Trax pass and $20 for the day.............. I only saw like 3 or 4 people that could have, might possibly needed a shower. But even if there were homeless people there I wouldn't care they did not bother me.. BUT geesh there were a TON of people there in a tiny area and they were kinda friendly but kinda annoyed that I had a stroller, BUT ITs UTAH home to double strollers, so they should not have even noticed me....

I went to the Farmers Market to see my friend Kerri who runs messes and mudpies. I still don't know how to do links...SOMEDAY. she has a way cute display and has totally beat my red crock pot to hell and she owes me another one..... She told me she was going to buy me a new one and I believe her. But I did not buy any soaps because I can buy those anytime I want, I am that awesome. OH you will note her button on the upper right hand side of my blog so no need to know how to link to her on line store. Its pretty neat so check it out. She just had a blog give away of her soaps... I did not enter due to the fact I am her BFF and it would not be fair if I won... I thought. So I posted about her after the contest was over. But she has a booth at the farmers market and she has an online store... SO NO EXCUSES. Handmade yummy smelling soaps = good.

While at the farmers market I bought some flowers!!! I LOVE IT. I always thought it would be awesome to live in a big city and be able to go early in the morning and get fresh flowers and produce... I will keep dreaming, but this was as close as I could get right now. They are beautiful I should have taking a pic, but I don't feel like it and aren't all flowers pretty!?!?! But they were kinda pricey for what I got. I won't do that again for awhile. But they look good. Geesh Its just money.

I also bought some BBQ sauce... $10 a jar BBQ sauce. The sample was good, but not again. Its to much money I don't care how good it is. I have not made anything with it yet because I want to go and buy a BIG FAST tasty pork loin so I can crock pot the heck out with the $10 sauce . I will invite somebody over for dinner for that... Its to nice of a dinner not too.......

So after all that will I go to the Farmers market again?? Probably not soon Its just to dang expensive... BUT I might go again just to get these Hawaiian Funnel Cakes I saw.... OMG it was a funnel cake with like carmel and just YUMMY looking Hawaiian things on it like coconut, pineapple, macadamia nuts stuff like that. I just kept walking because I had spent all my money =(.... I should have saved my $20 and bought a few of those..... When I do go back and buy one, I will share with Kerri, leave my son at home and not look at anything else. My neighbors give me enough zucchini to last me a life time. I need to make banana, zucchini, chocolate chip, coconut bread today............ All together not like 4 different kinds...

So go to the Farmers Market its fun to look at things but bring lots of CA$H $$$ $20 was not enough..... Oh and I had this ginger lemon limeade it was good... they cut the ginger in small pieces that were still to big... maybe they should try a garlic press or something....

xoxoxo,

I am hoping to go next weekend. I have a college friend who lives across the street from there I haven't seen in a while, there's a new restaurant in Provo I want to try, and I want to get cupcakes from Sweet Tooth Fairy. Go Provo!

I have been to Pike's Place Market in Seattle and thought how cool that would be to have a place you could get flowers for so cheap and really fresh fish and produce. I guess that's a close second:)

Thanks for coming to see me! As the market was ending the flower people were selling their flowers for $5 just becsue they needed to get rid of them. I could've bought some, but I have to discipline myself. I'm there to make money, not spend it! So, after your flowers dye, come at 2:00 to buy more.
