Shop Local Spotlight: Cedar Park Farms to Market

balsamic vinegar

None of these are sponsored links. I only write about what I love! I love to eat!

This week’s haul from Cedar Park Farms to Market included fresh veggies from Johnson’s Backyard Garden, Balsamic Vinegar from Texas Hill Country Olive Co., coffee beans roasted in my former hometown Houston, TX from Katz Coffee and bread & pastries from Sweetish Hill Bakery. While I was at the market Sierra and I ate tamales from the Tamale Place. I eat their tamales for lunch on most Saturdays! This week I tried their nopales (cactus) tamales and they were so delicious!

french toastI had never made french toast with success until today! P.J. showed me how easy it was with Sweetish Hill Bakery’s sliced baguette. Here is how they turned out! Other goodies I picked up at their booth were the Coconut Macaroons, which I took to a birthday party, the Ginger Snaps & Chocolate Chip cookies with nuts! Also picked up a Wheat Bread loaf and Sunflower & Flaxseed for sammiches later this week!


today's juiceToday’s juice from Johnson’s Backyard Garden: Organic Beet, Carrot, Kale, Mung Beans I sprouted and Apple and Ginger from the store.


crackersCrackers I made yesterday from my juicing pulp. I followed AM’s recipe loosely to make them. I made them on a silicone baking mat in my oven & have since eaten them all! I love how there’s no waste when you make crackers with your juice pulp! What do you do with your juice pulp? I have made vegetable broth with my juicing pulp and might start composting it on my patio so we can start a garden. Microbial Earth is also at the market, so I might pick up some of their bran to get my compost on. or make LOTS of crackers. Either way, I need something to do with all the pulpy leftovers from my daily juice.

One reason I picked up the Balsamic Vinegar this week is because we eat the crusty baguettes from Sweetish Hill almost every week, and I wanted something to dip it in!

We are going to drink the coffee we bought from Katz Coffee’s table and I might use a little of it in my Kitchen Coffee Soap.

What did you get from the farmers market this week? and what are you going to do with it?
