Farmer’s Market


Our local farmer’s market is on Sunday mornings. I figured it might be fun to share what I bought and what I want to use it for:

  • Tomatoes – Probably some sort of pasta sauce
  • Carrots – Good to have on hand. May end up as a vegetable side dish.
  • Corn – It’s only the second week that corn was available (it was too picked over last week to buy any). We may eat it on the cob or perhaps in creamed corn.
  • Fava Beans – I’ve wanted to try these for awhile and I finally have a chance now that they’re in season. Possibly a side dish or as part of a pasta.
  • Cucumbers – These are being turned into Kosher Dill Pickles as we speak (er, type).
  • Red Onion Scallions – I like scallions and I like red onions.  They intrigued me.  I think I might use them in Macaroni & Cheese.
  • Mint – For use with the fava beans.
  • Dill – For use with the pickles.
  • Rosemary – Angela picked out this one. It’s sort of the herb-of-the-week to be used however it fits into a meal.

    That produce looks gorgeous! You could easily make carrot-rice soup with the carrots. It’s one of my all-time favorite soups. If you’re interested you can check out the recipe at this site:

    I haven’t heard of carrot-rice soup before. I may give it a try depending on how the weather is around here.
