Expensive eggs, flavorful almonds, and a lot of chiles at this week's farmers market.
What We Bought:
If you're in the North Valley, stop by the little Wednesday afternoon farmer's market in Citadelle Plaza. Our first must-buy was the very last bag of Frantic Foods' roasted almonds. Chances are that if there's only one left of anything, then it's a good pick and these smoky almonds are sure to impress. We also somehow justified spending $6 on a dozen eggs from TJ Farms, which pretty much fooled us with aesthetically pleasing, multi-colored and sized farm-fresh eggs.

We're not used to seeing food trucks out of their box, so it was nice to see the Torched Goodness folks out and about and burning up some crème brulee. We got a "small" $3 lemon crème brulee, which was light and rich all at once with a great summery citrus tang. We also had to pick up some Detlaff Farms chiles, which were 10 for $1 for serranos and dried rat tails and 5 for $1 for dried habaneros.
