The Farmers Market

The Pearl Brewing Company was established in 1883, and is part of the revitalization of Downtown San Antonio.  The new developers are transforming the old brewery in to “an iconic culinary and cultural gathering place where you can eat, live, learn, work and play on the Museum Reach of the San Antonio River.”

So, I decided that I must check it out:

The Farmers Market is open from 9-1 every Saturday (come rain or shine), so I took my husband a cup of coffee, kissed him good-bye, and headed out the door.



  Since I got there right at nine, I was able to get a few good shots in before it got too crowded.


There was a large selection of beautiful fresh vegetables and flowers



Burgundy okra?  Hard you ever heard of such a thing? The grower told me that it great to cook with because it doesn’t get “as Slimy” as regular okra



  Artisanal Cheese from Humble House Foods (YUM!!!)


Texas Honey


Another Texas Honey with Pecans: Ocher Pecan Company


Now this is Sam: That Sam I am, That Sam I am, I love his Jam. Now, this is not your Grandmothers Jam, there is stuff like Very Berry Amaretto, and Spiced Peach Butter. I could eat it by the spoonful.
