Hey kids, it's another lovely afternoon for your Wallingford Farmers Market. Come hang out at the playground, grab an ice cream bar from Whidbey Island Ice Cream, and bring your parents with you to pick up some stuff for your fridge, and to enjoy another amazing and informative, not to mention delicious, cooking demonstration at 4 p.m. by Chef Rachel Yang of Joule.
It's fava bean season at Alvarez Organic Farms. And actually, they've also got English shelling peas, cucumbers and summer squash, too! You will also find cucumbers at Alm Hill and fava beans at Stoney Plains today.
Summer Run has the most beautiful, and tasty, cauliflower right now. I roasted some in the oven last night, simply tossed in some olive oil, salt and pepper. Awesome. And really sweet -- sweet like it doesn't quite get by steaming it. Oh, and Summer Run has spectacular broccoli right now, too! Woohoo!!!
Jessie's Berries returned to your Wallingford Farmers Market this past Wednesday, bringing with them these beautiful strawberries, as well as farm-fresh eggs! Of course, the eggs sell out fast, so get here early!
Yay! More fruit!!! Yep, these are first-of-the-season apriums from Collins Family Orchards. They are a cross between apricots and plums, leaning to the apricot side. Collins also has Tieton cherries now, too!
Tefft Cellars has just released their 2010 Rosato d'Sangiovese. Tefft Cellars is a winery based in Outlook, Washington, and they make a wonderful variety of wines, many of which they bring to Market with them. In fact, with July 4th just around the corner, you might want to avail yourself of their wine box-- a great value, and it'll take the edge off of all the invading hordes coming into Wallingford on Monday!
You know, not everything at your Wallingford Farmers Market is edible. But then again, not everything in life is, either. And in these difficult economic times, we need to make the best out of the homes that we have. That's where Sage Saskill and his 5 Cent Architecture Advice comes in. It's kinda modeled on Lucy's advice stand in Peanuts, but with more skill and less attitude! Pick Sage's brain about all things about your house. You'll find a nickel can go a long way. And hey, he's got nice legs, too, right?
Of course, this is just a highlighting of what you will find today. There is still plenty of other stuff just waiting for you at your Wallingford Farmers Market this week. For a full accounting of what you will find, check out What’s Fresh Now!
