Farmers Market 1/31/13

While I continue to get caught up on things here is the farmers market haul from last week. I went light on veggies simply because I didn’t get a chance to plan meals for the week. Which is sometimes good because it forces me to get a bit creative use up everything. I found some pea shoots again but I really shouldn’t have purchased them. They were too soft and worn. But not all was a loss, we were able to get one salad out of them.


  • Leeks (still a bit early in the season to be buying them but I really needed them)
  • Lacinato kale
  • Yellow onions
  • White potatoes
  • Pea shoots
  • Avocado


More fruit than I need but they are intended for a citrus shoot I’ve been meaning to do for the last couple of weeks. This is a good sample of the variety available right now. I still don’t have it straight on the who and what of all the varieties of citrus. And quite frankly, the more I look into this, the more confused I get.

  • Pomellos
  • Navel oranges
  • Cara Cara oranges
  • Blood oranges
  • Satsumas
  • Tangerines (a variety I can’t remember the name of)
  • Clementines (a variety of tangerine)

Kiwis! Yes, I found kiwis. Unfortunately these aren’t very good at all. I’m glad I treaded slowly and only bought four.
