This Week’s Farmer’s Market Finds

This week’s farmer market excursion includes our staples: our weekly order of cashew yogurt, our berry packet, and our mixed greens. Plus a bunch of ordinary kale, some cilantro and a red onion. Chuy our berry guy’s farm had made some black-raspberry Jam, which turned out not to be black-raspberry which I had never heard of, but Blackberries and Raspberries Jam.

The produce that continue to be in season are grapes, and eggplants. Although if you look closely, there are two new kinds of eggplants I haven’t bought before. One is completely white, long, and thin. The shape and size of a small Japanese eggplant. The other a more mellon shaped eggplant that has streaks of purple over the white base. I’m looking forward to experimenting with them.

What’s new this week are mini mangos that I haven’t even seen since I left Asia. I found them in a booth from a farm which specializes Asian Fruits, which are hard to find in the US. Today, they had “cherry Guavas,” which I had never seen before, mainly colorful and mini guavas, and also Dragon Eyes fruit.

On the same table they had the very first pomegranates of the season. They are my favorite fruit, so looking forward to seeing them in different stalls and looking for the sweetest trees!

Otherwise we bought, two sweet corn tamales, frozen Aloo Gobi and Tomato Bhaji from the Moroccan store, and a Hawaiian grilled bbq beef Musubi.
