Farmer's Market Deals

This week I tried to incorporate a greater variety of vegetables than usual into our weekly dinners, because I want our one-year-old daughter to try different tastes. She already loves spicy foods such as vegetarian Indian curries, and thanks to the great finds at the Farmer’s market, she tried a vegetarian Moussaka last night and loved it so much that I filled her bowl three times.

We usually buy the majority of our produce at ALDI, but since I wanted a different variety, I made a quick stop at the Farmer’s Market, and I was positively surprised about the prices.

Eggplant $1
