While I didn't grow up on a farm I have always appreciated a good farmer's market and fresh from the farm produce and goods.  On a recent camping trip in Gilbert, MN it was suggested to us by friends to check out Kunnari's Kitchen Coffee House, & Farm Market.

Located in Virginia, MN it was just a short drive from Gilbert and it's no small place and has a clean and modern look to it.  Not only do they offer fresh and absolutely delicious produce from their farm, they also have a restaurant serving up breakfast and lunch.  I had the opportunity to go there more than once during my week camping so I could make sure to have something off of both menus.  The food was fresh and presented well and was much better than your average diner fair.  I had the Turkey Apple Wrap for lunch which had their made in house "tangy apple dressing", it was delicious!  When back for breakfast I had a build your own "skillet omelet" which consisted of meat, cheese, spinach, and avocado and also very tasty.  While I didn't try a blueberry muffin, everyone there that tried them were raving about how good they are.

I didn't get a picture of their strawberries available for purchase but I can say they were delicious as was the watermelon.  The whole "market" area was well laid out and had a huge selection of items ranging from different types of tea, jams, syrups, granola, breads, meats, cheeses, pickles, eggs, and dip mixes as well as soaps, lotions, home décor and much more.  I also noticed a pie case and next time hope to indulge in something from there.  I did end up going home with a jar of hot pickles, farm fresh green beans, cukes, and some potatoes too, which we cooked on the fire that night.
