A collection of seasonal recipes and stories

market report 06.18.11

The fudgies ate all my vegetables!

I know that in high season, if you don’t get to the market by 10 you’ll miss out on some good stuff. But there are a lot more people up north now than there were a week ago, and this morning we missed out on almost all the stuff! When we got to the market a little before 10, my favorite farmer was already sold out and packed up. Everyone else just had lettuce and spinach, which I still have left from last week. The good news is that quite a few farmers had strawberries, and there’s still a bit of rhubarb around.

The other good news is that all these visitors generate revenue that ultimately ends up in my paycheck, so I’m happy to share my farmers with them. Still, I guess my Friday nights should consist of a little less Buffy and a lot more sleep so that I can get my lazy ass to the market earlier.

  1. Oh great, now I want donuts for breakfast! Unfortunately, (or maybe fortunately) we don’t have a donut vendor at our market. It is one of the things I miss the most about the Farmer’s Markets when I lived in Washington, seemed like every one had good donuts. We often joke about doing one ourselves.
    Sorry to hear you missed out. We have the same problem this time of year, not so much with tourists, but just the fact that we have limited produce and a lot of people looking for it.
    I’ll be leaving soon for our market, or maybe I should make some donuts first!! Better luck to you next week.
