Cliché Alert: I LOVE FARMERS MARKETS.
What’s not to love? Every time I visit my local Civic Center Farmer’s Market, I discover ingredients I’ve never seen before. From long cranberry bean pods to Uzbek sweetness melons, and from Arkansas Black Apples to cherry tomatoes that come in all colors of the rainbow, the farmers market continues to feed my creativity in the kitchen. It is truly a treasure to be able to find such exotic colors, smells, and tastes right in the middle of the concrete jungle of downtown San Francisco.
This week I picked up some Heirloom Purple Potatoes.
