St. Pete Saturday Market

My mom and I headed down to St. Pete this morning for the Saturday market. If you haven't been, you simply must check it out! It was awesome. There are a ton of local farmers, artists, and vendors selling their products. Farmers with fresh produce at unbelievable prices. Artists selling jewelry, photography, art made out of metals and old hubcaps. People selling artisan breads, hot sauces, bbq sauces, cheeses, fresh herbs, fresh seafood, desserts, specialty food items, etc.,etc., etc.

It was a foodie's dream. There was a live band and tons of people with their dogs. I bought some grapefruit, oranges, a great chedder cheese and baba ganoush. There was a great vendor, Pappardelle's, there selling homemade flavored pastas. They only sell it at local farmers markets, they don't have a store anywhere. I got a rainbow medley orzo, which is spinach, red pepper and plain orzo. I also got a basil garlic fettuccine. While my mom got lemon garlic fettuccine. You know I'll be making some good dishes with those in the future. Here is their website:

And of course I bought fresh kettle corn popcorn! One of my favorite things in the world.
