Farmer's Market

I went to the local farmer's market yesterday. I picked up some pasture-raised steak (tonight's dinner), a cob of corn (ditto), garlic, blueberries (mmmm... all gone!), and a really cool carving that was stupidly-cheap:
I told the guy he was underpricing his lovely work... can you believe he only charged me $15?!? And then included a puzzle for free? There was a lady there who was selling her embroidery for incredibly cheap too... like a throw-pillow for $5, or 3 for $10. The pillow *inside* probably cost $5!!!

Speaking of hand work being undervalued... click here for a post that tries to fight this.
