Farmer's Market Fun!

We had both woken up early Saturday AM, and though it was raining, we remembered the Gloversville Farmer's Market was open, and ran over for a quick impromptu shopping trip!

Baked goodies from Chick and Hen!

For breakfast, my mom picked up a Chick and Hen smoked bacon and gruyere quiche and a fruit tarte.

The quiche had a nice, crisp pastry shell with a mild custardy filling. It was denser than most quiches, but I really liked the consistency. I wished there was a stronger gruyere presence and a bit more bacon, but overall, it was delicious!

The tarte's crust reminded me a lot of shortbread. Topped with thick vanilla pudding and fresh fruit, it made a perfect breakfast dessert! ...Because we all know it's OK to have dessert after every meal. :)

Cheese from the Palatine Valley Dairy.

Fudge from Karen's Produce and Ice Cream- one of my first jobs was working at their produce stand and scooping ice cream!
Fresh strawberries from Conbeer's Farm! NY has a RIDICULOUSLY SHORT growing season for these...

This truck made me so happy.

A fun excursion with the maternal unit!

What is your favorite farmer's market find?
