Skywatch Friday - Farmer's Market

Every Saturday morning between April and October, the Bentonville square turns into a farmer's market and a social gathering place for hundreds and hundreds of people. You can buy everything from hand made jewelry to organically raised prime beef & pork. This time of year I am in the market for fresh tomatoes and okra. Yes, okra...and I like it fried or boiled. Needless to say it is good in stew and soups. I found what I was looking for so Saturday evening we had BLT sandwiches and later in the week okra will be on the menu.

  1. I love going to markets like this, you can't go wrong with a fresh tomato there is nothing as good, okra I also like really well, fried is the best for me but I'll take it any way.

    1. We have several in the area. It can be difficult to decide which one to visit.

  3. I love going to the farmers markets!
    I have been buying okra, too, blanching them (whole pods), and putting in the freezer for winter eating
    Have a great week-end!
