Farmer's Markets + Boutique Shopping

This weekend, Bryan was out of town so I decided to have a "me" day on Saturday. After the Relay for Life ended, I got up and ran 5 miles along the waterway, passing the green market. It always is so inspiring to see others out and about during my runs.

Distance: 5 miles
Time: 43min
Weather: Sunny and Breezy

Post-run, I made a refreshing smoothie of berries and flax meal and headed out for some shopping. First stop was the Farmers Market.

I was amazed by how much money I saved. I am now a Farmers Market addict and will try to always buy produce there. I just love how fresh everything is!

I filled my cart to the brim and walked out paying $24! I would have spent twice or even three times that much at the local grocer!

I bought Sprouts, Avocado, Pineapple, Apples, Mango, Raw Peanuts, Pears, Sweet Peppers, Carrots, Fresh Cilantro, Melon, Watermelon, Spinach, All Natural Rice cakes, Sweet potatoes, and more- just what I need to last me through the last week of the Daniel Fast :)

After getting my produce fix- I went to meet a girlfriend at the WPB outdoor shopping district- CityPlace- for some much needed lattes and boutique shopping ;-)

Between Apricot Lane, Francesca's Collections, and Macy's- I came home with 2 adorable dresses! I love sun dresses and think I will be wearing them all summer.


  1. I wish we had a nice, cheap farmer's market where I live!! And some better shopping!

  2. But you have the mountain,forest view- Breath-taking!!

    The farmers market is really cheap this time of year- however in winter I have heard the prices go up a bit.

  3. I would give up a lot to have Fresh Fruit here. We have fruit, but it simply isn't fresh.
