What We Bought at the Farmer's Market

The Hilo Farmer's Market is such a treat!

and what a haul:

3 bunches of apple bananas
14 (that's not a typo!) small papayas
1 pineapple
15 lilikoi
1 thai watermelon
2 lbs. of lychees (yum!)
2 meyer lemons
1 head red leaf lettuce
2 heads green leaf lettuce
2 bags of kale
2 zucchinis
1 japanese cucumber
1 bunch basil
1 bunch cilantro
1 bunch green onions
4 white onions
red and green bell peppers
3 avocados

No, I didn't carry it all myself (that's what husband's are for, right?) ... but I forgot to get tomatoes! (smacks self on forehead). That's okay, still got a couple left from last trip, and we'll be back again on Saturday. I'll need ginger and garlic by then, too.

Was tempted by local squashes, but our bags were pretty well full and our arms tired. And I pretended not to notice the orchids and anthuriums. I spend too much on orchids as it is, and have two in bloom. Rule is I can only buy another orchid plants when none of the ones I already have is blooming.

Thanks to the fine folks at for the photos!

trick is, is to stop at the plant place first, have them hold your plants, do your shopping and come back at the end...
