Because it's still early, there weren't many vegetables. I saw a lot of asparagus, some of which I bought from Farmer Glen. There was also a lot of fresh herb plants, as well as plenty of beautiful annual flowers. It's definitely too early in the season for any fruit.

Before I got to the market, I promised myself I wouldn't buy any soap. If you remember my Lush binge at Christmas time, you know I have enough soap to last me into the next century. However, when I found myself at Cellar Door Soap Co., I quickly forgot my promise. And I can't just buy one soap. Not when they're 3/$15. So I left with 3 new soaps. I bought the last bar of Turkish Mocha. SOOOOO yummy! I also bought Orange Clove and Peach Bellini.

There's also a new soap maker in town - Union Street Soapworks. Not all of these soaps are vegan (some use goat milk or honey) so read the labels carefully. I love that they use avocado and coconut; also essential oils. I'll definitely try out some of these later in the summer. (Note - you may want to try out "Dirt" or "Beer Soap" for the man in your life. Intriguing, right?)
Did you go to a Farmer's Market this weekend?
