Farmers Market Sunday

September 21, 2009


Ignore the filthy table.  Today was a quick jaunt to the farmer’s market because we had a brunch date with some friends.  Since we went to the co-op on Saturday night, we only had a few things to pick up at the market.

  • 1lb chicken thighs and legs from Sweet Tree Farm
  • 8 oz. feta cheese and 8 oz. of mozzarella from Heamour Farm
  • 2lbs clover honey (mostly gone already – I baked today!) from Lloyd Spear, Beekeeper
  • 1/2 gallon of reduced-fat milk, plus 1 pint cream (not pictured because I used it for baking already) from Battenkill Creamery
  • 1 quart fall peaches from Maynard Farm

Our meal plan for the week includes:

Last night – Local spaghetti squash with a sauce made from local tomatoes, garlic, onions, spices, etc.


Other nights this week:

  • Pizza with the feta and mozzarella cheese, tomatoes, etc.
  • Spicy honey-brushed chicken
  • Portabello mushroom “burgers” with Ezekial buns

The sides with our meals always vary based on the mood we’re in, but always veggies from our garden/farmers market plus a starch.  We’re very traditionalist. :)  We’re going out with friends two different nights this week so we didn’t need to plan as much as we normally do.

    The spicy honey brushed thighs are so good. One of my fav recipes ever!

    Can you tell a difference btw your creamery milk and normal grocery store milk like Stonyfield or Organic Valley?

      I can, on a variety of levels. I think it tastes fresher, coming in glass bottles. I also think it tastes creamier, but I don’t really know what percentage of fat it has, so it really may be creamier – thus more full-fat (more points). It’s reduced-fat, however – I don’t know if that’s automatically 2% or not.

      Not to mention, beyond the taste, I love the fact that I’m supporting local cows :) and the bottles get reused – another plus.
