I have to be honest, my favorite market days are rainy market days. The slower pace gives us more time to chat with our customers and really hear about what they want and how they cook their food. The foodie in me loves to hear about their favorite recipes! The best part is you know it’s gonna rain, so pull out your best rain gear and show it off!
So what are we bringing to market? We have beautiful squash, green garlic, leeks, field greens, arugula, Asian turnips, baby romaine lettuces, baby butter crunch lettuces, eggs, and honey. A full booth of quality food for the most dedicated foodies in town!
Let’s talk about green garlic. It is available for such a short window that is coming to a close. Don’t miss out on this scrumptious treat. These tastey treats are milder than regular garlic and are a mix between a garlic and a scallion. They are great in stir fries.
Here is my favorite way to use them: Toast some pine nuts and sautée the green garlic in olive oil. Toss in a can of drained and rinsed cannelloni beans with the toasted pine nuts. Throw in a whole bag of our arugula and cook it until it wilts. Squeeze the juice of one lemon over the yumminess and serve. Easy peasy fanciness!
I am so excited about our early squash. Matt has really babied them through the late freezes. I love to sautée them in olive oil and eat them up. They taste like summer!
Matt and I look forward to seeing you at market! Market is best in the rain. Parking is easy and there are no crowds. There is also a small donut line! Total perks.
We have lots of surprises next week. Garlic scapes will be in among another things. See you soon!
