Farmers' Market Haul - 3/26

Pickings were relatively slim at the Japantown farmers' market today. Spring may be here, but for the most part, the stuff on offer was the same stuff that was available in early February: Fuji apples, navel oranges, beets, turnips, chard, and assorted other greens.

Green garlic looks a little like an overgrown scallion, with looser leaves up top, and a bulbous, purple-streaked white part at the bottom. And it smells like garlic. Mmmmm. I bought two bunches. I haven't quite figured out what to do with it yet.

The other cause for excitement at the market was that the mushroom lady was there, with fresh shiitakes. So I've got some shiitakes.

Today's total haul:
