At last week’s market Hill Orchards had juicy Peaches and were selling the first of this season’s sweet corn. Almost all of the farmers had cucumbers, and Summer Squash for sale. Moosup Farm featured gorgeous, plump, just picked, blueberries.
Another demo took place this past week: “Veggin’ Out” Cooking & Nutrition Demo by Johnson & Wales Community Service Center, sponsored by RI DOH WIC Program & RI Dept. of Environmental Management.
Cook’s Valley Farm featured These gorgeous new potatoes perfect for a picnic worthy potato salad! They also had spring garlic, fresh onions, summer squash, peas, raspberries and cabbage! I have a regular listener who seeks out local cabbage at the farm stands and markets so she can make her son’s favorite stuffed cabbage dish!
Puzzled about what you see or what to do with your veggies once you get them home? Ask your farmer!!! He or she will be happy to explain what something is, how to cook it and even pass along some favorite recipes.
I’m so hungry now.
See you at the Market!
