Farmer’s market haul

leave a comment »

Yet another (mercifully brief, I hope) update from this week’s farmer’s market…

This week, it’s a whole lot of greens and a few other bits and pieces – apparently my latest obsession.  Here we have spring onions (loads and loads – so tasty), bok choi, rainbow chard, cabbage, kohlrabi, beefsteak tomatoes, and broccoli.  In the front are some locally made bagels which are light but super-tasty.

(By the way, other than those holding the bagels, all plastic bags are reused).

Not from the market, but from the same trip: pickling salt, a reuseable toothbrush, eco-friendly laundry detergent, spices,and a bag of local organic oats from the local grain mill (which is fantastic, by the way).

I’m excited about all the greens – thus far, I’ve had steamed greens, greens in salads, and greens as the wrap part of chickpea salad wraps.  Up next I have exciting plans for stir fried broccoli and bok choi as well as – with any luck, fingers crossed – homemade sauerkraut.  Onward and upward…
