To Market, To Market

Lettuces, garlic, snow peas, potatoes, onions, and oyster mushrooms... Oh my!

Roberta, the market manager.
Saturday has come around again, and 8:30 saw the family heading off to the market to see what has come into season.  No plum buns, plum cakes, or fat pigs were to be had, but as summer has come in, there are plenty of things starting to turn up on the tables at Withrow Park.  We quickly filled up our bags with snow peas and new potatoes from Dave at Haystrom Farm, Ben Sosnicki provided lettuces and fresh garlic, and Laurel's Small Potatoes stand had green and purple new onions and oyster mushrooms.  We also picked up a couple of new cheeses from the Montfort Dairy to try out, a goat's milk cheddar and a herbed brie.  We also checked out a new vendor, This Ain't Your Momma's Bread.  While gluten etc free aren't really our bag (baby), we did pick up a loaf of their very nice looking bread for a friend of Suzy's who's coeliac to try out.  We're looking forward to serving them all up over the next few days.  I had a pleasant follow up conversation with Roberta, and she will be adding a link to this blog on the market site.  What fun!
