Heartfelt salutations, dear friends! Market Day is almost upon us…you can feel that tingling way down in your toes as you consider the lunch possibilities…
Who doesn’t love crab cakes? Well for starters, people who don’t eat crab. But that doesn’t mean that you want to miss out on the delectable flavor experience that has made this dish a southern staple. In comes lion’s mane mushrooms to save the day!
Amedee Frederick is in the “house” and this Saturday his jaunty tunes will be spilling from the gazebo and saturating the market with song. Time to get your veggie pancake from Meme ‘cause they truly are delicious.
For many of us here in the South, New Years day would be incomplete without the compliments of black-eyed peas and greens. This tradition is said to bring prosperity and good luck into the new year.
A recipe so good, you’ll think it’s bad… But it’s actually packed full of healthy ingredients, like sweet potato, ginger, turmeric and coconut oil. Just baked in a deliciously moist, soft muffin. It’s the best of both worlds!
Sweet potatoes are here at the Covington Farmers’ Market! I don’t know about you, but my favorite sides for Thanksgiving dinner seem to center around sweet potatoes (after Mom’s baked mac-n-cheese, of course).
The veggies are pouring in; the greens they are a-comin’! Natalie boasts broccoli and Brussels sprouts. Sam has baby kale (so nice to chop up and add to any soup, especially if it came from a can.) Nick has his awesome sweet potatoes. I wait for them every fall; they are so flavorful.
Greens, greens, and more greens! Don’t you just love greens season? Kale, collards, lettuces and radish greens, they’re everywhere at the Covington Farmers’ Market! And they’re never better than when they are fresh picked by our local farmers.
Bring on the fall veggies! Autumn harvests are full of warming foods, well-paired with rich spices like ginger, turmeric and cumin. Sweet potato is a favorite for a reason – its versatile flavor and texture can go sweet or savory and adds something special to almost any dish.
