Farmer’s Market Finds


Roamed by the farmer’s market the other day and had to stop when I saw all the great looking heirloom tomatoes.  These guys were awesome.  I knew I wouldn’t be leaving without some.  I had to pick, though, and that was the hardest part.  The one I really wanted was the big orange one behind the the large group of smaller red guys on the right (not in the basket).  But first I had to take it to the scale…1.8 pounds.  WHOA!  Ok, I was not going to pay over $7 for 1 tomato.  I grabbed various colors of the smaller guys.

Then, next to them were some eggplant I’d never seen before, Fairy Tale Eggplant.  I was told to slice them longways and grill (can’t have a BBQ at my place) or pan sear/cook them.  They had a nice flavor to them, different than a normal eggplant — a bit sweet — and just so fun.

Love the farmer’s market!
