I got a serious farmers market fix yesterday: snap peas, snow peas, English peas, fava beans and strawberries. It truly is a great time of year to be eating from the surrounding regions of NYC! And there will be many more fresh treasures to come. This is the simple inspiration for a project I’m starting up, called Farmers Market Fix. It’s currently a weekly newsletter from me, offering some hot tips on what’s ripe for cooking at the Greenmarkets in New York City, and what to cook with it.
The project is evolving and it’s just at the beginning stages with the email newsletter. Soon, I hope to share more details on what you can expect from it, as I gather feedback and see how it goes. Curious? Just sign up by adding your email address to the list. The newsletter will go out once a week, and you can unsubscribe at any time with a click.
Really looking forward to sharing this exciting venture with you, and thanks so much for being an early adopter! And if you’re wondering about the photo in this post, I was debating over a number of heirloom tomato and vegetable pics, still in their market crates. Most farms in the area don’t have many tomatoes yet, but those fetching photos from past years’ harvests made me anxious to start cooking with them soon. And so I remembered this simple salad recipe, for Heirloom Tomatoes with Green Beans, Summer Squash and Dukkah, and went with the prepared food photo instead. Hope you enjoy it in anticipation, too.
