  • whats your favorite farmers market treat?

    it's summertime and my family loves going to the market. i enjoy the raw cheese selection while my husband just adores the grass fed ice cream. my girls had some juicy peaches today and i had to pry their little hand off of 'em LOL;-)

    so i'm just wondering what you guys enjoy getting @ your local farmers market.

    Peaches! We love them cut up and covered with full-fat oraginc heavy whipping cream.
    I also like yellow tomatoes and cucumbers.

      Cambodian food, wine tasting, Chinese sesame balls, Cuban sandwiches, fresh-squeezed orange juice, samosas... oh, you mean a primal treat?? =P

      I bought a duck from the farmer's market and cooked it last week, that was a fun treat. It's a treat just to look at this booth every week: http://www.earlymorningfarm.com/emf_ifm.html It always looks AT LEAST that pretty. I wonder how much work they put into just setting it up.

          Squash blossoms!!! Stuffed with goat cheese, breaded in a thin batter made from chestnut flour, water and egg - then rolled in almond meal and deep fried. Comfort-food goodness! (fortunately squash blossoms are not available for long )

            Fiddleheads in the spring and cousa squash right now. Buttered cousa squash has the aroma and taste of corn (which I used to like but now don't eat) with the same nutritional profile as zucchini.

            What I really enjoy about the farmer's market is the aroma of all the fresh produce. Never have I noticed any aromas wafting from the produce in grocery stores. Not ever. The farmer's market is a wonderful treat for the eyes and the nose.

                Well it's winter here so I gotta go with the guy that sells locally grown chestnuts and sells them in scrunched up brown paper, hot off the coals - awesome. (not terribly primal very carby but I don't care!)

                        Fresh Figs! I hardly ever see them around here, but I always snag a few when I do. One day I will have a fig tree of my own, heh.

                            Sometimes when I go to the Ithaca farmers market I treat myself with a macaroon. I haven't in a long time. They're so yummy, and home-made.
