I'm 15 days away from closing on my first condo, so budget was top of mind this week. I wanted to first case the market, shopping via camera. Then, I would go back, with my food budget of $25, and make my purchases. It worked out great. But, I didn't have the financial fortitude to pass up a latte. Especially a latte as gorgeous and delicious as my first one at Filter Coffeehouse (on 20th Street NW near S Street in Dupont Circle).
With that coffee love pouring into my belly, I started exploring Dupont Circle Farmers Market. Here are a few of my favorite things I found...
Squash Blossoms & Green Beens
Multicolored Okra (These came home with me.)
Keep reading after the jump for more market finds, entertainment & cute pups!
Still a lot of peaches from VA farms available. Eat em fast!
Love the sidewalk orchestra!
All the sweet corn you can eat!
A bushel of steamed crabs fresh from the Chesapeake Bay.
The Mushroom Lady's sampler. I ended up getting lobster mushrooms from her... which I will blog later... hopefully with a risotto!
Love that the Dupont market is so puppy friendly.
For my $25, I came home with okra, a giant lobster mushroom, beet greens (all new things for me to try), garlic, shallot, tomatoes and a half loaf of Atwater's sunflower bread. I'm planning risotto, salads and paninis. Keep me honest on using them this week!
