Sunday at the Market
February 7, 2010 § Leave a comment
Sunday is the day I go to the market to stock up on vegetables (and sometimes grains) for the week. The goal is to avoid running to the store because I need something that a recipe calls for and simply make one trip to the market a week. I pick up whatever looks good or interesting and worry about how I am going to prepare it later, when I get home. I typically bring everything home, wash it thoroughly, and arrange it on an accessible platter like the one in the pictures so that I always know what my vegetable inventory is.
Here are the finds from yesterday’s market trip, as pictured above:
- baby potatoes
- red carrots
- sun chokes (a.k.a. Jerusalem artichoke)
- Romanesco broccoli (a type of cauliflower)
