my saturday happy place

Ever since moving to PA almost a year ago, I was thrilled at the thought of living next to two year-round indoor farmer's markets (not to mention the close proximity to all of Philly's offerings). You can imagine my elation when I found out that Bryn Mawr hosts a weekly outdoor farmers market on Saturdays. I went a few weeks ago with a friend to poke around and see what each stand had to offer. Since then, they've added several new stands, including a chocolatier, a baker, cheeses from a local dairy farm, pesticide free plants, and a few other various stands. I was pressed for time and originally went just to get a scone, but I couldn't help looking at all the amazing produce and meats and local honey.

I was tempted to buy a personal-sized four berry pie for breakfast, but quickly changed my mind when I laid eyes on the sourdough pecan sticky buns. $1.50 and this delicious morsel of baked goodness was mine. It wasn't sticky, necessarily, which I appreciated (no one likes have to wash their hands 4 times after eating something delicious). Rather, the top and inner swirl was moist and the dough itself was dense and delicious. I could have eaten two, easily.

On my way out, I couldn't help but notice two huge buckets of pink peonies. These gorgeous flowers are a new favorite of mine, as they're pink, enormous and don't have the awful, permeating smell that lillies have. I had seen smaller, less healthy flowers selling for pretty steep prices at the grocery stores so I was shocked to find that these beauties were $1.50 a stem or 3/$2.50. I bought myself three and they have not only blossomed to twice their size, but they make me smile whenever I come home to find them on my kitchen table.

All in all, a wonderful day at the Bryn Mawr Farmers Market!

Check out it this upcoming Saturday!
