Farmers Market Finds and the Weekly Menu 8/22 - 8/28/10

Couldn't you just go crazy this time of year at the farmers market? It seems like the booths are almost overflowing with the abundance of produce. I have to stop myself from buying more than we can use in a week because everything looks so goo.
Farmer's Market Finds 8/22
Plum Tomatoes - I plan on oven drying these if I get a working oven this week
Cilantro - We used all of this in some salsa we canned
Cod Ceviche - A little treat Chef Shack sent home with us.
Salsa - A little treat Global Garlic sent home with us. Rumor has it they are going to start selling this.
Garlic - We used most of this in our salsa.
Dried Cow Beans - No plans for these this week I was just thrilled someone that Walsh Ridge farm is going to be selling locally grown dry beans.
Pumpkin Blossoms - For quesadillas
Sourdough Bread - For sandwiches at lunch & BLTs. I'm so going to miss Sun Street's breads come fall, I mean just look at that beautiful loaf.
Red Onion - For salsa & quesadillas
Cherry Tomatoes - Just for snacking on
Minnesota Midget Melon - This smells amazing & I can't wait to have it for dessert with a little mascarpone.

A few more pics for this week's Kingfield Farmers Market.

Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Black Mission Fig Sauce

I still need to come up with at least one other meal but I'm stumped right now.

I'm originally from Iowa and miss the country charm of your farmers market. I look forward to your weekly bounty to see what you will make. Thanks.

A bike powered blender- now that is a hoot! I love the free dog sitting one too!

Sambusa... hmmmm, I have to go investigate that.

I know what you mean. I buy and buy and I have to stop myself because I know it will go bad before I get to eating it! I just love your market recaps, you all have such an interesting mix of available foods and produce.
