Farmers Market Finds and the Weekly Menu 6/28 - 7/3/10

It was a beautiful sunny Sunday morning at Kingfield Farmers Market this week with so many good things to eat & take home. We started off with strawberry turnovers & bacon biscuits from Sun Street Breads followed by thai green curry & pig ear salad from the Chef Shack, what a brunch!

I didn't think we'd get much at the market this week since we still had things like beets, peas & onion in the fridge but, we still ended up going home with two full bags.

Apple of my Eye Rye Bread - with figs!
New potatoes - We'll serve these cooked on the grill with burgers this week

Eggs - a few of these already went into ice cream
Carrots - these were just too pretty to resist
Chard - Some we'll use this week but most we'll blanch & freeze for later
Beans - the first of the season

I do the same thing at the market - I know I have plenty of vegetables in the fridge (and the garden!), and I only intend to pick up a few things, then I just can't resist! Fresh green beans! Baby beets! Garlic scapes!

I usually spend the better part of Saturday mornings cleaning and stuffing the refrigerator with fresh produce!

I just love the beautiful color of that chard! I get so jealous of your weekend farmer's market brunch. :)
