Well Sunday we went to the local Farmer's Market. Las Vegas has several active Farmer's Markets; this one is at the Richmar Plaza every Saturday and Sunday, in the Silverado Ranch area.
Farmer's Markets are a great way to get wonderful fresh vegetables and fruits, not to mention other goodies, and to support the people who offer organic and artisan foods and other handmade goods..
Our first stop was the Murray Family Farms booth. Their farm is just outside of Bakersfield, CA, and their booth had a great array of citrus fruits, including blood oranges and different grapefruit varieties:
We also availed ourselves of some fresh pomegranate juice and lovely asparagus:

I did not get the balsamic vinegar today because we still have some, but I will say that the 12-year aged balsamic from Bistro Blends of Napa Valley is some of the best I've had.
The last items we got today were strawberries -- don't those look good! -- and the handcrafted sausages:
We also got some flavored popcorn (non-GMO), an avocado, and a bag of fresh sugar snap peas.
There were food booths too, and the sound of live music wafted over the whole area:

Until next time,
