It was the perfect weather morning to go to the Farmer’s Market. Around 8 am I took off with my trio of helpers, and we arrived very soon thereafter at the Covington Farmer’s Market in Main Strasse. We scored a bunch of stunning cut sunflowers, cilantro (that hadn’t yet bolted), a few zucchini, green beans, green bell peppers and peaches (from Georgia). Since I really wanted tomatoes, we next drove out to the Boone County Farmer’s Market. The tomatoes were ripe, and according to one farmer, “flying off his table”. I purchased some pink pear, yellow tiny cherry, and smaller red and yellow tomatoes, blackberries, okra, a purple bell pepper and some dwarf perinneals for my garden. We’re having a dinner party tomorrow evening. I can safely say “homegrown” Kentucky produce will shine. Roasted vegetables with fresh mozzarella over rigatoni, fresh bean salad, black bean and corn salsa, and a peach and blackberry crostata are just a few dishes I have in mind.
