First Omaha Farmers Market 2015 — LOTS of rain & tiny haul

Yeah It’s a tiny video I know. It’s a tradition for us now to go to the first market of the season, rain or shine! We needed the rain so I’m not mad but I think It’ll take like a week to dry out my shoes. Plus you get to see the elusive husband, what a smile.

For my tiny haul I got:

6 pound jar (1/2 gallon) raw local honey – $30 plus $2 jar deposit
6 bunches MASSIVE onions – $4.50
meat sticks – $5 (we bought 3 pieces)
Candied jalapenoes – $6

Total: $47.50

Eh a little high when I think about it, but we needed the honey.

Have a great day everyone!
