Market Update- June 17, 2011

This week it’s all about the glory that is the tart cherry.  My little sister used to climb the cherry tree in my grandparent’s back yard and fight the birds just to have a few.  Things aren’t quite that bad for me.

Summer squash is still at the market, and our very first raspberries have started (the farm I work for is in Pennsylvania, so we’re a few weeks behind the places in Maryland and Virginia.

I am not a fan of vegan food, for the simple reason that an existence without cheese is not something I am willing to contemplate.  At all.  For even a nanosecond.  Color me pleasantly surprised by the brown basmati rice lemon zucchini salad from V Picnic Club.  This ALMOST makes up for Juan Carlos not opening his taco stand at Mt. Pleasant this year.  Almost.

Ah, spring!  Peas!  Strawberries!  Tiny new potatoes! Iced coffee!

I’m back at the Mt. Pleasant Farmers market again.  I had forgotten how delightful it is.

This week brings my favorite thing ever (after peas.  and maybe cherries)- summer squash!  I will be eating this until it’s winter squash season, and then, in the dead of winter, I will quietly sneak to Whole Foods, wallow in self pity, and purchase zucchini and sugar snap peas.  But for now, let’s just rejoice, shall we?
