Farmers' Market Haul - 1/29

Farmers' Market Haul

Apologies for the crappy cellphone camera pic - I figured I've got to start getting some images into this blog, but my digital camera is being wonky and isn't talking to my computer. Gotta love technology.

This picture shows some of my goodies from this morning's trip to the Japantown farmers' market. The farmers' market was pretty sparse today (or perhaps I was there earlier than usual). Several of the usual stands were missing, including the mushroom lady who sells fabulous fresh shiitake mushrooms. However, all my other favorite vendors were there, including Lujan farms, Hamada farms, and the nameless stand with the outrageously good and cheap vegetables run by a big extended family. (I was rung up today by the youngest daughter, who could not have been older than seven, and who handled the whole business of weighing, adding, and making change better than most of the grown-up vendors at the market.)

The haul today was:

On my way back to my car, I stopped to chat with a couple who I think were the pastor of the local black church and his wife. They had a lot of questions about the market, and I got to show off my produce and babble about Meyer lemons.

I think I'm going to cook the green beans using Mark Bittman's recipe for slow-cooked green beans. I'm not sure yet how I'm going to cook the broccolini. (Hmmm, I bet if I blanched it, sauteed it with garlic and olive oil, and then tossed it with some juice and chopped zest from one of those Meyer lemons, that would be good.)
