Farmers Market Love
I love going to the farmers market. If I could do just one thing, in any city, around the entire world, it would be to wonder through a farmers market for hours. I love the smells, the beautiful fresh vegetables and fruit, and the amazing ingredients. I always go with the expectation that I will find what I am after and leave. Well, that is the case normally when I have the kids, but today I went solo and wandered around twice, browsed, touched, and smelled everything I wanted to. Did I mention I love the farmers market?
Things just taste better when you get them fresh from the market and besides growing it yourself this is the next best way to get the best flavour and nutrition from the food you put into your body. I walked out of the market with some great finds, (more on that later), a full tummy and very happy.
I found Le Petit Mousse which is a crepe and sandwich place. I know what you are thinking GLUTEN or maybe not, but I was, and I almost passed by but noticed a gluten free sign. They make a buckwheat crepe that is gluten and dairy free and very good. There was no one in line behind me so I had time to chat with the lady who runs Le Petit Mousse and she informed me that they use an entirely different station for the gluten free variety so there is no cross contamination.
My version was bacon, spinach, mushroom and garlic and I asked her to add some goat cheese and fresh tomatoes. I can't guarantee they will do this for you but I used my charm, ha! It was a killer combination for $10.
Yummy!! If you get a chance stop at the market and devour one of these. You won't be sorry.
