 This morning, after a breakfast of 5 Jet Puffed marshmellows and an extremely healthy smoothie, Hot Stuff and I set out for the Saturday morning farmer’s market.  I’ve been eager to get some locally grown, organic veggies to compare their flavor to the vegetables I ate in France…. whose taste were incredible.

Well, there is a reason that Colorado is The Mountain State and not the produce state.  There were more jewelry booths than veggie stands there… and I’m not talking rummage-through-stuff-to-find-great-deals-on-treasures jewelry… I’m talking the kind of booth you might imagine Cartier would set up in a parking lot. 

We made our way though the Aspenites with their designer sunglasses and white shitzus  to the only organic fruit stand there.  I bought some cherry jam and apricots.  I went back to an organic veggie stand further up the way and got my hands on some green beans… which I am especially interested to compare to the french green beans… which were remarkable.  I also got the weirdest looking purple bell pepper and some red onions and yellow squash.
