Ok, by now most of you have noticed that I haven’t been at the market…
Greetings fellow foodies and eat local activists!! Well here we are.. in the middle of a busy summer.. we are super excited to have you join us! There is so much to be grateful for this time of the year.. amazing farmers bringing incredibly beautiful and delicious produce. Taste the difference of locally grown small farm fruits and vegetables.. it doesn’t get any better than this!! It’s pesto time!! Try a cilantro pesto.. chop a bunch of cilantro, put it in a blender with olive oil, walnuts, lemon juice and a couple of cloves of garlic.. salt to taste and blend on high until you have an amazing gorgeous green sauce ..use it as a veggie dip on pasta or on fish or eggs. YUM! Easy, delicious and so very good for you!
Listen to music as you browse the plaza craft and food vendors.
