Weekend Eats Part 2/5: The Farmers Market Haul
"Now," she said, "when I get my hands on broccoli, I have to eat it that day or I can't use it."
That lit a fire under me. It's almost summer - summer and fall are when I go to the farmers markets much more than winter and spring - and I decided I should not take for granted all the things available to us. I never know when I might end up living in the Faroe Islands. Well, you know what I mean.
Saturday morning, Elizabeth and I went to my favorite of the farmers markets in the area: the market at Victory Park. (I could make the argument that overall I enjoy South Pasadena's market just as much, but that's more about the overall experience. The selection of produce at the Victory Park market is much better.) It was packed, not surprisingly, but we came out with quite a few items, and took them over to my parents' house a couple of miles away.
We bought: an artichoke plant, strawberries, sweet corn, cilantro, green onions, dill, cookies, guacamole, and English peas.
