#73: Farmer's Market
I spotted this little farmer's market the very first trip we made to Poquoson and finally made a stop yesterday on my way to see the nephew (and his momma :). Pearl's Produce is a locally-owned stand gathering all its crops from their fields right in Poquoson. The stand is on the corner of Victory Blvd and Carys Chapel Road. They also set up a stand at the weekly farmer's market in Yorktown, which is on Saturday mornings from 8 a.m. to Noon.
I bought a gigantic tomato and six sweet banana peppers for $3.30. You absolutely cannot beat that. I'm going to try and can the peppers like my mom does with some dill, garlic and vinegar....should be interesting. Hopefully I can find a few more of these quaint little markets before the Summer is over, which seems right around the corner!
