This past weekend we took Ryan's grandma out to the Mill City Farmers Market and then to Spoonriver for brunch. It was a beautiful day and we had a wonderful time leisurely making our way to each destination, stopping to chat with friends along the way.
As much as we wanted to buy just about everything at the market, we reeled it in and bought only enough to get us through meals this week, not wanting anything to go to waste.
Last night we put together a salad that was oh-so-local!
I neglected to take a picture of it last night, but snapped one on my phone today at lunch. We roasted candy striped beets (Loon Organics) along with some small red onions and put them on a bed of spinach (Dehn's Garden) with chevre (Singing Hills Dairy) and smoked trout (Star Prairie). Yum!
