Farmer's Market and a trip to Foggy Fairhope

Just got back from Fairhope, AL.  Played a concert there last night.  It was incredibly foggy!  Here are a few pics:

Went to an awesome place for lunch there today: Sunflower Cafe. I had grilled tempeh with quinoa, roasted red peppers and greens. My husband had the vegetable and tofu stir fry with brown rice and lemongrass sauce.  Both delicious!  It's right next door to an excellent health food store....yes....I shopped while my husband sat and waited for me....I highly recommend both! They have a store  in Mobile, AL as well.  Some of the things I bought to try: Soy Delicious Creamer (although it's French Vanilla...I usually go for unsweetened), sprouted grain bread AND sprouted grain pasta, finally got some arrowroot powder, and actually found Franken wine there (you can't find that stuff anywhere)!!!

On to Saturday's market: satsumas, oranges, kumquats, strawberries, tangerines, meyer lemons, tomatoes (both reg and hydroponic), roasting peppers, green onions, mustard greens, lettuce, broccoli, brown rice, radishes, and white button mushrooms.

Wow did we have flooding on Saturday night!  Our concert was canceled because of it.  Although we were almost half-way there already, driving the car through several lakes on the way.  We were able to turn around and eventually get back home.  Several of our colleagues were stuck on the road for quite a while though...

Oh, and there's another giveaway to tell you about: products from Newman's Own Organics.  It's at VeganMindedBlog...check it out!

For now.....
Eat smart,
