I'll start the ball rolling with the fingerling potatoes I bought at Tompkins Square yesterday. I am very bad at remembering the names of stalls, but there are only half a dozen or so here (open Sund

They make Hooligan (full stop) which some might call stinky. And mean that as a compliment.

Well, we need a thread for the rest of the entire world outside NYC, so here ya go.   What did you get at your farmers market? What did you get in your CSA box? Either will do: post it here!

When I was about 5, I used to sneak next door to my aunt's house for her Grape Kool Aid sherbet.   As I remember it was just Kool Aid mix, sugar and condensed milk.    I thought it was nirvana.   Then.

Claudia Fleming's Concord Grape Sorbet is my go to. I highly recommend.

That sounds great - and I'll bet a similar sherbet would be wonderful as well.

Last night I had a delicious peach gelato, at Il Laboratorio. Fruit ice creams aren't necessarily my favorites, but this one was spot on.

Gravenstein and Pink Pearl apples, direct from Sebastopol.

Today, I got Jonagolds from the same vendor, as well as a new-to-me variety, Belle de Boskoop.  The latter have a really great tartness to them.

I realize I didn’t do my usual once-a-year heirloom tomato dish. For most of my life I avoided tomatoes altogether and still find them challenging; but the range of flavors and textures in the heirlooms make them worth it.

notable since the only time i remember seeing any mention of guinea fowl was at the now closed branch of golden gate meat company at the ferry building.

if you manage to get to the sf ferry building farmer’s market or fatted calf, we’ve been spoiled by root down farm’s chickens. worth taking a look at.
