Market and Carrots???

















Tonight I had my first raw carrot since the farmers market....Don't panic, the last market was was only like a week ago and I have eaten cooked carrots since then. As I said before, I ate a salad that had some raw carrots from the store, in it. They were gross. Not sweet, rather they were bitter. I have no idea why. For some strange reason I have this strange addiction to market. It makes me so high. I always get so happy after I go to market. The atmosphere is so great. All the familiar people; I've met met many people there and many of the vendors have come to know me by name. I am definatly sad that it is all over. So to give me a lessor high, I thought I would reminisce and just show you some of the pics. I love to go to the Clintonville, Worthington, and Westerville markets. So who knows you may run into me some day.

Nice photos! Our local market is so so, more of a crafty kind of place. There are good meats, baked goods and some veg & fruit. Nothing artisan though, just typical. What is in those beer bottles?

Hey Dan,
I have been to some markets that are so so, then I have been to some that are open 7 days a week all year. Those are amazing and HUGE; but they are also gov. funded. My market has lots of just about everything, they are really well rounded. In the beer bottles is a type of fermented beverage call "Kombucha". Kombucha is tea that has been allowed to ferment for medicinal uses and for just enjoying. I really like it, it tastes really sour, but I like it.

We have nothing so nice in this area. Can't beat fresh vegetables. The supermarket vegetables are bred for their ability to last a long time and not rot during transportation.

Apples and some other fruits give off Ethylene gas. I have read if you have apples in the refrigerator with carrots it will cause the carrots to turn bitter. I know it will cause orchids to drop their buds. I would keep fruit away from all indoor flowering plants. Thanks for visiting my blog.
