It’s another warm, sunny Wednesday, and it’s time to head on over to your Wallingford Farmers Market for all manner of local deliciousness, direct from the farmer, like these spectacular — looking and tasting — striped German tomatoes from Billy’s Gardens. You should also make plans to check out the cooking demonstration today at 4 p.m. by Chef David White of Tilth. He will share with us great ideas for how to make the most out of the bounty to be found on the farm tables here.
These early season ginger gold apples are sweet and crunchy, with the right amount of tartness, and you will find them now at Collins Family Orchards. But don’t dillydally, as early season apples usually just have a couple-week run before being replaced by the next apple to come into season.
Look, ma! It’s oyster mushrooms in technicolor! Yep, the pinks are mingling with the whites again at Red Owl Mushroom Farm, so stop by for some fabulous fungus, and bump up your veggies, salads, pastas and stir fries tonight!
We’ve got honey again at your Wallingford Farmers Market. This is honey from Anne’s bees up at Alm Hill Gardens in Whatcom County. In fact, it is raspberry blossom honey. If you’ve ever enjoyed Alm Hill’s amazing raspberries, you will appreciate that this honey is the bi-product of Anne’s bees pollinating those berries. Nice, eh?
Mmm. Juicy, delicious, and frankly, quite beautiful, Santa Rosa plums from ACMA Mission Orchards. Now, I could wax poetic about these bad boys profusely, but do I really need to? I think the photo tells the story pretty well. It says, “Eat me now!”
Summer Run Farm always has such perfect produce on its tables, don’t you think? Just look at these summer squash they brought to Market last week. Magnificent. And simple to enjoy, too, especially if you’re tired at the end of a long day at work and feeling lazy, like me. Just slice them down the middle, oil them up, and slap them on the grill!
These cantaloupes from Alvarez Organic Farms are some of the best you will ever taste… and I do mean ever. I had some at our Ballard Farmers Market this past Sunday, and boy howdy, it was flat-out the best cantaloupe I’ve ever had. Trust me. And enjoy!
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!
