Farmer’s Market Bounty: August 31, 2008

September 4, 2008

One of my peach purveyors doubled the size of her stand to celebrate summer fruit making it’s last stand before autumn rolls in. The Market was teeming with shoppers gearing up for Labor Day bashes and this week we picked up beautiful bi-color corn, heirloom tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, raspberries (for homemade ice cream of course), peaches, nectarines, pluots, grapes, haricots verts, red onion, peppers, lemons, shitake mushrooms, zucchini, leeks, spinach, basil (for pesto), sage, flowers, fresh ricotta (yes we can to gnocchi), and last but not least creamy goat cheese from our favorite Soledad Goats. A special kudos to Carol from Soledad Goats who told me four of her goat cheeses picked gold medals at the LA County Fair.

As usual, we welcome ideas about what to make this week, so please send in your ideas. Who knows, you might get a dish named after you.

The “Farmer’s Market Bounty” series is a weekly, typological photo essay of my Market shopping, which charts the possibilities of seasonal eating.
