I popped into the Deerfield Farmers Market this past Saturday as I had driven past it a few times and kept meaning to go. And I have to say that it’s been my favorite suburban farmers market to date. (I still have to check out Evanston because something tells me that’s a pretty stellar one.) A few shots from my morning there –
Individual pies from Elsie Mae’s – a bakery in Chicago. I ended up bringing home a cherry apricot pie. I really should have gotten one of each flavor offered. 😉
I’m only adding the above picture of the woodfire pizza oven because I really want one. I mean, I don’t have anywhere to put one, but I still want one. 😉
One thing I didn’t get a taste of:
I saw the stand, but The Girl was getting fussy so we bolted. Sigh. Next time. 🙂
Notes about this farmers market –
- Dogs are allowed. So bring Fido!
- Park behind the market. There were a good number of decent spots back there.
- There’s a park behind the market. VERY cool/helpful if you are toting the kids along.
- I didn’t get a chance to check it out, but visit the flower stand. There was a line at the tent, and I saw several people in and around the market with bunches of flowers. (I specifically saw bunches of sunflowers. It’s that time of year!)
