VEGAN BUDGET: $25 and 2 weeks of produce at my farmer's market shopping trip: A SHOUT OUT TO MY FAVORITE FARMERS MARKET FARMER OF THE WEEK: COX FARMS!

This morning my husband and I visited our local Raleigh, NC Farmer's Market. It's one of the largest farmer's market within the NC Agricultural Building.

I usually purchase my farmers market produce from Wise Farms (click here for Wise Farms) as I have given awesome kudos to Wise Farms in past recipe posts.

SISTER V'S TROPHY AWARD: I must give a Sister V "YOU ROCK AND ARE AWESOME!" SHOUT OUT TO COX FARMS(click here for Cox Farms website and some vegan and vegetarian recipes). The majority of my farmers market purchases today were from Cox Farms!

Cox Farms is a husband and wife small farm who value their employees as family-which shows in the delicious, sweet and beautifully flavored and colored vegetables this family sells daily at the local farmer's market. Just a little about our Raleigh, NC Farmers Market : many chefs of sole-owned restaurants in the surrounding area towns shop at the market's market weekly, if not daily, because they know local, fresh produce means bringing quality to patrons.

Who says you can't shop on a budget! I purchased today for only $25 and approximately 2 weeks worth of the following whole foods: deliciously sweet green tomatoes that I already sliced for lunch and served with Italian crusty bread and olive oil with a chilled glass of Pinot Grigio White Wine on the side; red tomatoes; acorn squash; butternut squash; sweet potatoes; cabbage; cubanelle peppers; Serrano peppers; a bushel of small variety hot peppers; greens; heirloom tomatoes, heirloom, eggplant and heirloom zucchinis (yes, that's right heirloom zucchhnis and eggplants). Since I received 2 weeks worth of produce today for only $25, I'll freeze what I know that I will not be able to cook for the upcoming week.

Who says you can't eat healthy and inexpensively as a vegan or vegetarian! I could just eat what I purchased today without doing anymore grocery shopping for the week! Compare my farmers market bill to those still eating meat! A BIG DIFFERENCE as far as quality, fresh, healthy meals and more money in my purse!

Thank you Cox Farms! You made today's farmer's market experience the same wonderful, enjoyable trip that I love and always look forward to!

Support your local farmers. They may not label the produce as organic, but many do grow their crops as organic- they just can't afford the government's expensive certification to say it's organic! Or, if not organic, they do try to use environmentally friendly methods for growing produce. Buy local. Buy from your local farmer. THANK YOU COX FARMS! YOU ROCK! Cox Farms receives the AWESOME AWARD FROM SISTER V THIS WEEK!
