Farm Fresh & Local Produce 9/2/09

Author: swampkitty05  //  Category: Columbus, Eating Local, Farmer's Market

Can’t believe that the farmers markets are over for the season, but I’m still trying to catch up on posts from summer still. Oh well, at the very least, it lets me hang on to the illusion of warm weather for a couple of more weeks. 🙂

This was a Wednesday market at Dublin, but I was in such a hurry to leave the house that day, I forgot my camera. So excuse the poor quality of the pics – they were taken with a camera phone, because I figured that crappy pics were better than no pics at all. And excuse the prose below that is written as though it were the present – I wrote this months ago, and am just getting to posting it now.

The tide has definitely turned at the farmers markets. The apples are out in full force. After coming to farmers markets for a few years now, that’s my division between summer and fall – the arrival of the apples. The earlier the apples, the shorter and milder summer we’ve had, at least in my estimation. I don’t know if that holds any scientific weight, but that’s my story and I’m sticking to it. 😉

And alas, the tomatoes are coming to an end. Eat ’em while you can, folks – because it’s only downhill from here.

I bought so many leeks it’s not funny. I’ve been making a lot of risotto lately, and leeks have been a central ingredient.

And I’m still contemplating the best way to use a ton of eggplant…

Mmm. Tomatillos. Love them. When you cook with them, they lend a nice acidic sweetness to whatever you’re making.

I’ve loved trying out all the different heirlooms this year. Which one is your favorite?

I’ve got to say, I’m really enamored with the mid-week market at Dublin. For a first year market, it’s beyond great. Have you folks gone yet?
