$10 at the Farmer's Market

I found myself at the Farmer's Market today and realized I only had $10 on me. I could have left and hit the ATM, but parking is hard to come by at the market. So I decided to stretch my $10 and see what I could get.

I ended up getting:
1 bunch cilantro $.50
1 bunch basil $1.00
1 1/2 lb Gala apples $2
3 ears white corn $1
1 bunch radishes $.75
1 bunch green onions $.35
1 avocado $.75
1 loaf Jalepeno Cheese bread $3.50

I spent $9.85 and got a pretty decent selection I think. I only cook for 2 adults and a toddler, so I don't buy much at one time anyway. I wanted to get some marche and spring mix but it was a toss up between that and the bread, and the bread won (this week at least).

what would you buy if you only had $10 on you?
