Bounty from the PSU Farmers Market, No. 3

On my next visit to the PSU Farmers Market, I drove a Zipcar. It was the day I went on the Architectural Heritage Center's Kitchen Revival Tour which I recently posted for you. Hope you enjoyed it.

How about this cute coat and matching boots--so cute!


Tulips. I didn't buy any flowers on this visit, but I certainly enjoyed looking at them.

Never heard of this. Have you? I didn't buy any of it, so I don't know what it tastes like, but I think it is neat to look at.

Have to wonder what the child in the stroller was thinking about the giant chicken standing there, no doubt talking, in front of regular-sized eggs.

Cherry Country makes fabulous chocolate-covered cherries. They are not full of that juicy sort of stuff you get when you bite into Brach's Chocolate Covered Cherries Cordials. No siree. I always buy a box of the mixed, milk and dark chocolate. Inside are dried Royal Ann cherries. Hey, if you're craving these, they've got a shopping cart at their Web site. Like I said about Rose City Pepperheads, go online and shop yourself silly. Next visit I plan to try their various jellies. I'll let you know what I discover.


A wide shot and a close up so that you can get the best possible look at the best Golden Delicious apples ever, from Kiyokawa Family Orchards.


I bought one of those muffins with the chocolate chips, named Chocolate Cheesecake Muffin. Divine. Enough for more than one dessert. I will go back to this booth for Delphina’s Bakery.


It's like walking around in a cornucopia, but actually it is the booth for Groundwork Organics. I bought turnips again. So good.

I haven’t tasted miner’s lettuce but know in grows wild here in Northern California and folks make salads from it.

That chicken would have disturbed me as a little kid.

Never heard of miner's lettuce either but you make it look very beautiful!

maybe they mis-spelled it, and it should've said minor's lettuce. and, in that case, i'm too old to try it.... =)

great shots!

Miners lettuce is I think not grown here in the UK, I am pretty well traveled and have never seen it before. I love the hello kitty outfit, very cute.

Okay, what is a zipcar? Smart car?

I love this place. I'd shop there all the time if I could. We have nothing like that here which is a real shame!

Great slice-of-life photos...the little girl with the matching boots is really cute. Never heard of "Miner's Lettuce," though.

I can nearly smell it..... here in Norway.
