Farmers Market Update: Rain

by | Nov 1, 2008

It was raining pretty hard this morning and I admit it was difficult to motivate for the farmers market. I procrastinated for several hours before finally deciding that I just could not abandon my future self to subsist on sub-par vegetables and fruits for the rest of the week. And if I didn’t go, what would I write about?

I also remembered that because of the rain, this is the last week I can get summer tomatoes until summer 2009. That clinched it.

Yes, for future Darya and for all of you I braved the wet weather. As luck would have it, within ten minutes of arriving a gust of wind spilled the rain that had collected in the top of one of the vendor’s tents and dumped about half a gallon of water on my head. Sigh.

But even though it was kind of miserable, my trip to the market was definitely worth it. Now I know for certain I will be eating amazing food all week.
Today’s purchases include:
  • Dinosaur kale
  • Gold chard
  • Baby artichokes
  • Flame grapes
  • Giant fuyu persimmons
  • Hachiya persimmons
  • Pomegranate
  • Padrones
  • Mediterranean cucumbers
  • Early girl tomatoes
  • Soul Food eggs
  • Pain epi loaf
  • Organic coffee
