The Kingfield Farmers Market definitely picked up this week in terms of the produce that is starting to become available.

We picked up our purchases & then sat down for a bacon brat & chocolate brownie ice cream from Chef Shack with an ice coffee from Cafe Palmira while being entertained by the Roe Family Singers. Now how is that for a breakfast?!

Here's what we got this week...
Farmers Market Finds 5/30
Davidson's Local Honey - I finally used up my jar from last fall
Brats & Semolina, Potato, Flax bread from Sun Street Breads - The bread was so good last week we couldn't resist another loaf.
Baby Beets - These are destined to be ice cream
Pea Tendrils
Lamb Stew Meat & Beef Short Ribs from Sunshine Harvest Farm
Sugar Snap Peas
Baby Broccoli - We had this broccoli from Tiny Planet Produce last week & it is so tender & sweet.

There was gorgeous spinach & lettuce too but look at my salad garden!

No need to be buying any for a little bit. Sadly our spinach bolted again this year before it was big enough to eat. Since its $2 for a huge bag at the market we won't be growing it again.

On to Menu Planning Monday...

Cherry Bomb Brat on Sun Street Buns with grilled asparagus (leftover from last week's market)
Beet Green Pizza
Linguine with Sugar Snap Peas & Pea Tendrils
Lamb Kabobs with a Mint & Pea Yogurt Sauce
Broccoli Stir-Fry
If there is enough beets leftover a pink risotto
