Farmer's Market Bounty


Our market is every Sat from 7 till 12 or so.

Here's what I snagged this week: a bunch of kohlrabi, a bunch of green onions, a bunch of great smelling basil, a head of cabbage, some red potatoes, and then 2 whole chickens and some leg quarters.

I try to buy something new every time if I can. This week for us it is the kohlrabi. We have never tried it before. I know eventually we will have tried most things and it will be harder to try something new...but till then it's an adventure!

I am gonna have to go with you one Saturday, this place sounds really interesting, I didnt know they sold chicken. Do they sell fish?

You are welcome to come anytime with me. It means you are gonna have to drag yourself outta bed by 8 am, tho. No fish that I am aware of. They have beef, pork, chicken, and bison.

Bison? Uhh they aren't extinct? I will have to go with you, when are we going again, Saturday? So all I have to do is get up, drive to your house, even though I will probably look ragedy so please be aware and sleep on the way there and then watch you farmer's market? This is a plan! Be aware you may have to remind me.

Shelly: I have not tried it yet...I have been told it is similar to turnips....those don't go over well here. We will see how it goes.

farm mom: I will share! I have it on the menu for tm night. It is going to be used for my One Local Summer meal this week.

Crazy Young Black Woman: Okay, well i am used to the raggedy part....and I will believe it when I see it...you being here by 8 am....

Somewhere between cabbage and turnip in flavor, related to broccoli and cauliflower. Here's a recipe link that sounds pretty good if you like Indian-spicy tastes:

Oh, FM, I tagged you with the "7 strange things about me" meme!
