Weekly Menu and Farmers Market Finds 7/31- 8/06/11

It continues to be steamy hot in the Twin Cities, not so great for us, but good for all the summer crops. Things are really starting to pick up at the farmers market.
Farmers Market Finds 7/31
We didn't pick up a ton this week week, but what we did looks amazing.

Cilantro
Sweet Corn
Green Beans - Steamed crisp tender these are the best summer side
Tomatoes - The first we've seen this season
Cucumbers


According to our corn farmer, Peter's Pumpkins and Carmen's Corn, this is the best sweet corn of the season. Peter told us it was good enough to go home and eat for breakfast raw.
Bags of Sweet Corn
He was certainly ready for a rush on it. Look at all those bags of corn behind his booth!
