Hi Tuesday Market Friends-
Hopefully your Labor Day weekend allowed for enjoying some local food. We’re in that sweet spot where summer and fall crops overlap and the variety available to us is enormous!
Maddie Elling from Hosta Hill got her groceries taken care of when she worked the market last week, pictured above. Maddie said “The best part of unloading from a market! One of the top reasons I love being a vendor at markets: getting amazing food and knowing the people who make it!”
Shiitake mushroom logs available at New England Wild Edibles- grow your own! Or buy a quart of shiitakes and try this recipe for Shiitake Ginger Glaze from Edible Pioneer Valley. Great to make ahead and use on meat, fish, tofu or tempeh. You can even get the ginger at the farmers’ market this week as the first of the ginger harvest arrives at Old Friends Farm.
