The farmers market thread

Recommended Posts

So a month or so ago, a friend of mine who's a (rather famous) (in some circles) habitué of the Union Square Greenmarket told me I had to get some of Feisty Acres's mouselline.  Feisty Acres thereupon stopped coming to GAP.  But now they're back, and I have to tell you all that you need to try that mouselline.  (Spread it on Lost Bread Homadama.)

At Le Coucou, they're currently serving Navets en Guise d'Escargots. It's a cute dish -- but not better than actual snails are.

Like the idea. Also turnips would be better in their scrambled eggs than those bitter snails.

My first farmer's market tomatoes today are a bit watery.

 

But the peaches are really good.

 

And  the fish vendor at Thompkins Square on Sundays (Pura Vida from whom I often get delicious scallops) - actually had soft-shell crabs. But they were expensive at $8, and not that big.

Which market currently has the best selection of micro greens?

 

Thanks in advance.

Ok - was hoping you would say one of the Brooklyn markets as I haven't found any lately in the few I visited.

 

Thanks.

Lost Bread Company is fantastic.  I cannot believe how good this bread is.

 

Their loaf with masa (I forget the name) is like everything that's good about sourdough and tortillas.

 

 

That bread (Homadama:  Anadama bread -- but with hominy!) is crazy good.

I would like to repeat this for emphasis. GET THIS.

 

I finally got to Union Square on a Wednesday, with Lost Bread in attendance, and indeed their breads are delish.  I now have a loaf of Homadama sliced and in the freezer (all I had room for), and my tasting of their other breads leads me to believe that the solo in the freezer will soon have company.

 

Also - Wednesday is a very good day for Union Square; not insanely crowded as it can be on a Friday/Saturday, and some very excellent vendors amongst the usual suspects.

Very good Espelette peppers this Monday, although we had to be quick as Frenchette were buying everything.
