Hi Everyone, 

Green beans and zucchini and yellow squash and garlic scapes. Think summer potato salad with red white and yellow new potatoes.  The first tomatoes. Spring onions.  Lots of greens and carrots too.  It is the first summer market, just in time for the heat wave next week.

Here in Tuscania we were served a summer risotto last night with sauteed thin rounds of zucchini and almonds.  It is usually served diced but I liked the tiny rounds on top rather than grated in.

What's at market:

NEW at NUMBER 1 SONS: Asparagus Kimchi is the new kid on the block.  Fermented with white miso, preserved lemon and plenty of kimchi paste. New York style Cucumber pickles are back including: Crispy Koshers, Half sours,  Honey Habaneros, Gin-Gingers, Dilly Daikon, curtidos, krauts too.

WHISKED Come to the Farmers Market this weekend and pick up cookies, pies and quiche for your sweet Dads. And we mean your dad and all the other dads you know who love chocolate.  Sea Salt Chocolate Chess pie and Chocolate Chip Cookies for a start. The Salted Caramel Apple  and the bourbon Pecan are both a best seller and the strawberry rhubarb cream or Crumble are a lingering memory of Spring.
CUCINA AL VOLO   I am in Italy this week and I can tell you that their pastas are as good as the pastas I am eating here. They are Tuscan chefs and I am in a town called Tuscania.
Pastas and sauces: Mateo himself was staffing the stand 2 weeks ago and we got to chat about their 3 restaurants.  We both agreed that their kale and spinach infused fusilli makes the very best pasta salad because of the beautiful green color and the way the spirals trap little bits of cooked vegetables, meats or cheese.  It should always be in your freezer for spontaneous pasta salad picnics. Carnivores: the beef brisket ravioli is marinated and slow cooked for 24 hours. Lots of sauces too. 

TRUCKPATCH:  Stacia may have raspberries for us!  Salad and lettuce mixes, kale and sinach, beets and asparagus. Baby Squash, eggs and Pork!

REID's ORCHARD: Strawberries, sugar snaps and apples. TIP: strawberries and asparagus make a great salad.

KESWICK CREAMERY: Use that yogurt on all the lovely new vegetables: potato salads, green beans and feta or yogurt, ricotta and tomatoes and mint.  Ask Sara about your summer cheese plate

MOUNTAIN VIEW: Gem Lettuces are my obsession this year.  
Garlic scapes. carrots, beets, asian geens, chard, summer squash, Strawberries. Sugar Snap Peas, lots of their amazing spinach (cooks up so tender and creamy, salad mixes, kaless, pea shoots.  

GARNERS PRODUCE: Squash and zucchini. Green beans, tomatoes. Spring onions, beets, lettuce mixeis, kales, Swiss Chard, carrots, Purple and white turnips, kohlrabi (the alien vegetable that makes the best slaw), bok choi, colllard greens. New potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, 

PANORAMA ARTISANAL BAKERY:  Two French bakers=lots of baguettes and croissants and breakfast pastries.  A whole baker’s rack of French inspired breads including their Rustique, sourdoughs, whole wheat, multi grain, pumpernickel, rye. Sliced sandwich breads and round loaves too.
