Farmers' Market Haul - 6/11/2006

It's been much too long since I've been to the Japantown farmers' market. So much for my intentions to eat locally in May. While I was away from the farmers' market, summer finally happened. There were three fruit sellers there that I don't normally see in winter, and the place was overflowing with peaches, nectarines, apricots, cherries, and strawberries. The vegetable stands were not to be outdone, offering eggplant, onions, multiple varieties of squash, fresh herbs, and what I think were cucumber shoots. The trick was in deciding how much of this stuff I could possibly eat before it went off. Here is what I got:

And I still didn't manage to spend more than $10.

I think I'll make a salad with the cucumber, daikon, and basil, and dress it with rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, and maybe a splash of fish sauce. I think I may try roasting the green beans - this is purportedly makes them tasty to non-green-bean lovers. I have not yet sold Mr. Spaceling on green beans. The peaches and nectarines will probably just get eaten out of hand, though I may try making a fruit salsa if the mood strikes me.
