I finally live in a town that has a farmer’s market – not that I lived so far from it before we moved a whole mile and a half to the new place, but there is something about being able to walk out the door with a couple of bags and walk down to the farmer’s market on a Saturday morning that is particularly awesome.

Much like frisée, garlic scapes seem to inspire a lot of fear and skepticism at the farmers market. But instead of eying those tangly, green shoots with mistrust the next time you see them on a stand, I’d recommend snatching up as many as you can.
Summer’s here, which means that the farm is kicking into full gear. Although I relished spring’s shoots, salad greens, and sugar snap peas, the arrival of summer produce brings a different kind of thrill. What are you most looking forward to seeing at your farmers market, in your weekly CSA box, or ripening in your […]
I just got back from canoe camping in the Ozarks with my mom and boyfriend. Since you don’t have to carry your food when you go canoe camping, you can plan more elaborate meals. They always taste extra delicious after a day of paddling! Here’s our favorite from the trip, a late spring panzanella with […]
Happy Holiday Weekend coming up! This week, I want to share with you some of the words from our weekly CSA letter (we do both a CSA and I shop the market). This letter is from our family farm supplier and keeps us up-to-date with all that is happening at the farm. The paragraph sums […]
If you are shopping your farmers market, this time of year you will likely be seeing the last of the strawberries, lettuces and greens. Longer growing cole crops are showing up; a bit of kale and chard and broccoli arriving (some part of the US are a bit behind with all the rain), and the […]

Spring finally exploded here, and my market haul took two trips to the car.

This week’s market fare is a short one, must be the busy start of summer! I am definitely with Joy in celebrating the fact that fresh berries are now in season. Really looking forward to a trip to the U-pick farm and the arrival of blueberries and blackberries as well. It’s a favorite time of […]
This week marked our first CSA pickup of the season. The bag contained spinach, scallions, strawberries, asparagus, bok choy, and lettuces. I go to the market as well as the CSA each week, though it sounds odd, and there I buy other items that our CSA does not grow. So, I added more herbs like […]
