This Saturday, I went to the Farmers Market in downtown Phoenix and was a little disappointed. Maybe I got there too late or people were there before it officially opened. It was scheduled to open at 8:00. I was there at 8:15. I walked around looking for fruits, veggies, herbs and whatever else was interesting. I did not find any veggies or fruit but I did find some interesting herbs I’ve never seen before. Under this one booth, they had basil, Thai basil, lime basil, lemon basil, peppermint, lemon peppermint, spearmint, grapefruit mint, lime mint, and chocolate mint. I purchase the lime basil, peppermint and Thai basil. I love the smell of herbs. I will go again but earlier!
Lime Basil, Peppermint and Lime Mint
I went to Whole Foods and Sprouts for the rest of my grocery shopping. My total for all of my groceries, including the Farmers Market herbs was $31.74 which puts my under budget $2.86. Below is my grocery list.
