Six days a week I have a wholesome breakfast of food entirely from the farm.
I don’t have an appetite until I’ve been awake a while, so on Saturdays we leave for the market before I’ve eaten. I have an enjoyable breakfast there, but it’s certainly not the kind of diet I recommend for every day.
Yesterday I started with a fried sweet potato pie from the Malones.
Next up was an amazing cinnamon bun from the Shreib family.
And I washed it all down with a large cup of freshly ground and brewed Ethiopian coffee from Sam and Mina.
I usually only drink one cup of coffee in the morning. But on Saturdays I have one at home, then one for the road, then a cup of their coffee at the market.
Starting every day with a fried sweet potato pie, a cinnamon bun and 3 cups of coffee would not be a good idea. But I don’t think it will hurt me much to do it once a week.
This morning I’ll return to eggs, potatoes, cantaloupe, and a single cup of coffee.
But come next Saturday it will be another Farmers Market breakfast for me.
