It has been a while since we had a rainy Sunday – the kind that makes you wonder if leaving the house is a good idea. I don’t mind it too much, but found myself dragging to get out of the house with DH to make it to the Cooperativa Organica Madre Tierra farmers’ market at Placita Roosevelt early enough for local produce. I credit this in no small way to finding an e-mail reminder from Daniella over at Siembra Tres Vidas detailing some of the items they were to have at their table.
Here are a few of the show-stopping farmers market finds that I just had to get on this visit. In addition to these, we also got red leaf lettuce, spinach, and a bag of homemade granola.

The farmers’ market at Placita Roosevelt is open on the first and third Sundays of the month in Hato Rey, a couple of minutes from the Domenech exit on PR-52. Got any ideas on how to use some of these items? Leave me a comment!
