Minneapolis Farmers Market

Well it looks like my wishful thinking last night paid off! I awoke this morning to beautiful blue skies.

I headed off bright and early for the Minneapolis Farmers Market to see the spring flowers, pick up some fresh produce for dinner, and get some much-needed fresh air.

First stop was Bar Five Meat & Poultry to pick up some grass-fed flank steak for dinner.

We turned around and grabbed some fresh pastries for breakfast.

Walking around with this creamy and flaky apricot danish was a great way to start the day! I love the sunny apricot in the middle.

Maybe next time I'll have to check out the breakfast burritos. This stand was certainly popular, and I could smell the grilled onions and salsa verde.

It's so fun to walk around and see the wide array of artisan goods.

We picked up some in-season asparagus to have with our steak tonight.

I love seeing the abundant and vibrantly colored fruits and veggies - even this early in the season! The Farmers Market really can't be beat for the quality and prices of the produce.

Beautiful tomatoes. I can't wait until August when I get to taste my grandparents' tomatoes straight off the vine.

The Market was filled with flowers ready for planting. I picked up some cut red tulips for my mom who has been at home fighting a cold.

On the way home, we stopped at an adorable little french bakery called Chez Arnaud. I devoured this prosciutto sandwich for lunch. A fulfilling end to a beautiful morning.

Bon Appétit!
