On Wednesday there is another large Farmer's Market in the late afternoon and evening. It is more of a party atmosphere as many people come to grab supper and do their shopping with a glass of wine in hand.
We are lucky that we have a Farmer's Market everyday of the week - a different location everyday. The other locations tend to be much smaller - 10 - 20 vendors.
This past Saturday I bought Lodi apples and got busy making applesauce. Tonight I am going to fix the eggplant - probably eggplant parmesan. We had cabbage last night. I bought one tomato and the man who sold it to me weighed it 3 times. It was over a pound and I think he thought the scale must be off. It will make some great BLT' s this week.
I also found some red okra. I love okra and this was definitely new to me. I haven't decided how to fix it yet. The vendor told me he had eaten it in soup and he could not tell any difference. Anybody seen this variety?
Do you have a favorite market buy?
