Alberta Avenue Farmers Market

I've been meaning to go to the Alberta Avenue Farmers Market for the last few months but with work, it was difficult finding time. This past Thursday was my one and only evening off so I took the opportunity to visit the little market. You can find more information about it here. Although it's small and quaint, there's a lot of things to choose from! I came home with a few goodies. 
I knew I wanted to try some pickled goodies and carrots are always full of crunch. When I'm done all these, I'll just throw in a few more carrots from the fridge to take advantage of that yummy brine. This big jar cost $6. 

My second stop was Queen of Tarts Bakery & Bistro. I don't remember the name of this bread but it was full of organic flour and pumpkin seeds. I've had toast the last 3 days. This tasty loaf put me out $5.50. 

The last and final stop was at Shooting Star Ranch. Daisy had tried their breakfast sausage and was highly recommending it. I've got a weakness for sausage and was about to buy the ham garlic sausage at another booth when the sample of elk sausage hooked me in. It was so stinkin' tasty I snuck in 3 samples. It was also very affordable to buy! That ring in the picture only cost $5.85. The ham sausage was going for $7. Jamie had also recently bought Khuno an elk antler to chew. Khuno devoured half the antler in one evening so this bigger chunkier antler was right up Khuno's alley. 

If you haven't had time to stop by the farmer's market on Alberta Avenue, it's definitely worth the trip. There was produce, meats and organic grains. It runs all year round and it's indoors! Parking is ample and the atmosphere is super cozy.
