Madison Farmer's Market, 08-09-03

We took off early Saturday morning and headded out to the Madison Farmer's Market, which we do a couple of times a year. West Allis has a very good Farmer's Market also, but it is very different--the emphasis there is mainly fruit and vegetables, not nearly so much cheese or meat, and those were the things we were out for today. A gas station on our way out of town carries dry ice, so we got some for the cooler and we were off. It was a lovely day for the Market! A group of bagpipers played distantly and the political groups were out in full force. We bought cheese from Blue Mont dairy, lamb from the Carpenter's, grass-fed Highland beef (chewy, but very tasty), trout, some world-champion muenster cheese from another vendor, white Superior potatoes (Georgie was very happy to find them), and a bunch of summer flowers to brighten the table. We kept it a quick trip, but Wintersilks is RIGHT THERE--so Georgie found some nightgowns at $10.00 each, and I got a silk-wool sport coat for $13.00! Woo! Next time, we need to bring more cash so we can afford buffalo and ostrich, too--.
