What We Bought:
Heather Hoch Sweets galore -- a must-get list from this week's farmers market.
The Camelback Esplanade Farmers Market is full of irresistible sweets and, well, we couldn't resist. Thanks to Gelato 64, we had a sweet breakfast of salted caramel and grapefruit gelatos. The smallest size is $4, but since it's so rich and creamy, you won't need much more than that to get a sugar rush. Urban Table impressed us yet again with their sriracha peanut butter chocolate chip cookies. Though they cost $12 for a small pack, we think the flavor explosion is worth the financial splurge.
Not quite what most would consider sweet, we also picked up spring onions from TJ Farms' stand, which were $1 a pound. Their delicate, light flavor makes them a perfect addition to any spring salad recipe. Plus you don't get awful onion breath from these little beauties.
