New Farmers Market

I stopped by the new Farmers Market way out in Valley Center today, and this is what I came home with:

2 cucumbers, 2 Italian frying peppers, 2 cayenne peppers, 5 kalamansis (or calamondins), and an Asian pear.

There was of course the ubiquitous and omnipresent (for this time of year anyway) offering of tomatoes and zucchini. Lots of potted herbs (I thought about buying purple basil, but I know I'd kill it), avocados, tangelos, lemons, peaches. I saw a couple bunches of collards and some arugula too.

Oh, and I tried a Persian lemon, which has absolutely no sourness whatsoever. My first thought was "where's the rest of the flavor?" Strange.
