The Palatine Farmers market started its season lost Friday, and I didn’t even know! So this Saturday, I was determined to go. I thought that it would be a great idea to bike there, but we had a frost last night! Most likely, the last frost of the season, but cold enough for lots of my impatiences to die. It was not deadly for humans, for sure, but it made a ride unpleasant. So for today, I took a car to the train station and then walked to the market.
It was such a pleasure to see familiar faces, even when in masks and six feet apart. And even more so, to hear that people recognize me, even when my face is covered with a mask and sunglasses.
I bought some micro-greens from my farmers.
They also had rhubarb, nice, fresh and crispy! I love it so much! Actually, I cut a stem immediately after I returned home, washed it, and crunched it. And it smelled and tasted like childhood :).
I also bought two loaves of Katic bread and a crazy croissant with guava.
And six Brazilian Brigadeiros: apricot, hazelnut, almond, pistachio, coffee, and dark chocolate. I think that was the first time in my life I tasted South Americas’ sweets.
Oh, and also, my farmers had the Mother’s Day tulip bunches!
