Farmer’s Market Report for August 3rd, 2010

Hi gang!  Scott and I were able to hit the local farmer’s market this week and walked away with some lovely bounty which include some new to me veggies!

  • Tomatoes and green tomatoes
  • Green peppers
  • Banana peppers
  • Yellow zucchini (!!)
  • Zucchini ball (!!)
  • Chicken sausage (not pictured)

Oh my!  I have never seen yellow zucchini or zucchini ball before!  I can’t wait to experiment with those!  Have you heard of them before or ever had them?  How did you have them prepared? I think the zucchini ball looks perfect for stuffing and baking!

Last night I used:

  • One banana pepper
  • One green pepper
  • 2 ears of local corn

To make some Mexican inspired rice for dinner.

It also had onions and a bit of salsa as well.  It was full of flavor and knowing that the majority of it contained local ingredients was very satisfying.

It was Fish Tuesday so we had the rice along side some chili rubbed tilapia that was baked in the oven.  Delish and filling!

What did you all get from the market this week and what have you done with it?

    I made it to the farm market this week. Scored tomatoes, corn, green pepper, peaches, cantalope and whole wheat bread. Yum!

  2. I found those zucchini at our market this year too! They had a couple different varieties they called them cue ball and eight ball squash. I want to grow them in our garden next year!
