Recently my husband has been getting gifts of eggs from a coworker who has chickens and ducks on her land.  She does not farm, just keeps the birds for personal consumption.  My husband and I both enjoy farm fresh eggs and are happy to take the extra off her hands.  My husband also really enjoys duck eggs so we get those as well because her family does not eat them.

On Saturday a friend and I went to the farmer’s market.  I was looking for some specific vegetables and herbs.  There was a lot to choose from, though not in variety of vegetables.  There was lots of lettuce and Swiss chard.  I was happy to see the strawberries were looking good.  NC has great strawberry farms and I like to go to the farms and pick strawberries.  I did not find a lot of what I was looking for, but that is a casualty of shopping and eating local.  You can only purchase what the farms produce!  I was under a time crunch and realized I cannot shop at the farmer’s market with a clock ticking.  I like to compare prices, walk around a little bit and then decide which stall I’m going to buy from.  I got some really nice kale, Swiss chard, bok choy, strawberries, and spinach.  I did not bring enough money with me to get the tomatoes that I wanted, but next time Insha’Allah. 

 Eat local!

Umm Ebraheem

Yunus 10:18

And they worship besides Allâh things that hurt them not, nor profit them, and they say: "These are our intercessors with Allâh." Say: "Do you inform Allâh of that which He knows not in the heavens and on the earth?" Glorified and Exalted be He above all that which they associate as partners with Him!
