Farmer’s Market Prep In 5 Easy Steps

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on June 19, 2010

I realized that preparing for a Farmer’s market, is a bit like preparing for a race

1) Lay out everything the night before!

2) Get about 4 hours of sleep.

3) Make a filling breakfast


Strawberry Carob Vegan Overnight Oats


  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1.5 cups almond milk
  • 1.5 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tbsp carob powder (gives it the sweet taste)
  • 1 diced banana
  • 5-6 small strawberries, chopped


Directions: Mix dry ingredients in a bowl and then add wet and whisk. Place in fridge overnight. Serve with more strawberries.

Diced banana….


Chop, chop!

After whisking everything like a crazy woman.


More strawberries because I kept eating the VOO. :biggrin:


Then into the fridge overnight or in the fridge for about 45-60 mins. You choose! Note- you do not heat the VOO in the morning.

5am on a Saturday doesn’t get any better than this…


I couldn’t get over how HOT it is outside today- even super early this morning. It is supposed to hit 30C today so hopefully we don’t melt at the market!

I had a layer of strawberries on the bottom!


I am loving how cute the CSA strawberries are! SO much flavour too.




This recipe was one of my favourite VOO concoctions by far! So amazing. I love carob powder + strawberries together.

4) Consume a ton of fluids


I hope there are bathrooms at the market… :ermm:

5) Rush out the door!

Your ability to constantly create delicious and unique breakfasts never ceases to amaze me (and cause instant hunger). Hope you had a successful day at the market :)

Hi Angela! It was so nice to meet you yesterday afternoon. I don’t know if you remember me – my mom and I sampled/bought your Liberate Glo Bar. You told me about your blog and here I am checking it out! Looks like I’ll have to become an avid reader.. maybe create one of my own? Either way, you were great. Do you live in the area? It looks like you’re a runner – I am too. We should go for a run! I get my runs in at 4:30am before work!

Yummmm, gotta try this version of VOO! Love strawberries and bananas combined! Woohoo, market time!

Hi Angela,

I am very curious about your Vegan Overnight Oats and want to try them, however, I can’t stand banana. Do you have any suggestions for an alternate to replace banana?

Looks great, definitely going to try! Perfect for weather over here in Thailand: 45C! I envy you… 30C is considered “cold” over here. ;)
