This Week at the Farmer’s Market

Covington Farmers Market LogoHappy Tuesday, friends! Well the summer is almost gone; the kids will be back in school very soon. But don’t you worry; the Covington Farmers’ Market is open Wednesdays and Saturdays regardless of the date or the weather. So, get your tasty buds ready for some incredibly delicious food and meet us at the market.
There are some wonderfully cool salads on the tables this week. Always refreshing is Kandy’s pan-seared salmon salad on a bed of papaya noodles. Another favorite is Lea’s Mediterranean salad with pita bread. The beef tostada that Victoria makes is crunchy, delicious, and filling. Chomper’s pulled pork, mac n cheese, and cole slaw are legendary. There’s music courtesy of the Farmers’ Market band and dessert (such as teacakes from Lillie and banana split cake from Frankie), jams, fresh veggies, and yard eggs. That’s right – all at the Covington Trailhead 10 am till 2 pm.
Saturday will start with a bang as our own Jerry Hess sings out some folksy tunes from the gazebo. Then get ready for MERIBO Italian Restaurant from downtown Covington. The chef will offer us a sample from their amazing menu. I checked the menu on line and found some truly unique pizzas and dishes such as wild boar ravioli, Meridionale pizza, and Lacinato kale salad. Mmmmm! Mmmm! Saturday can’t come soon enough.

We still have lots of great veggies but you have to get here early. Some items worth noting — J.R. still has tomatoes – orange, red, and Creole so I’m one happy camper! I found bright yellow Scotch bonnet peppers on Nick’s table which also boasted a delightful assortment of other unique heirloom peppers, such as Nardello – a long slim green pepper that looks like it should be HOT – it’s not. It would make a perfect salad pepper and also a great dipping pepper. John has diverse varieties of figs like Hardy Chicago (with a strawberry-like taste), Champagne fig, and LSU purple – all screaming sweet and delicious! And, of course, there are all varieties of peppers, squash, eggplant and more. I’m also seeing some new potatoes.
While our produce vendors are superb, let’s not forget about our artisan bakers. Windfield Farm’s French batard and health grain breads are much beloved ‘round here and I think you’ll find a different specialty bread on their counter each week!
Lena (7Grain) grinds her own flour for her sprouted grain breads — a market favorite. If you haven’t tasted her almond biscotti you don’t know what you’re missing. It takes to coffee like a duck to water! Coast Roast is sure to have the perfect coffee for your biscotti or any of the other flavorful cookies, muffins, and desserts to be found on the tables.
I also discovered that Rebecca (Spanish R Us) has cornbread. I didn’t think to ask if it was spicy but it looked very inviting and I was sure Mauthe’s sweet cream butter would sachet right over there and make itself at home melting all over it and I do believe there was some discussion that Blood River Honey would have added a sweetness that butter couldn’t match. I don’t want to take sides so I choose both!
All of our market breads are a magnificent canvas not only for the rich taste of butter and honey but also for the amazing variety of jams and jellies that Althee and Robin have to offer. Sooooo, how many more reasons do you need to be at the market each week? Sleeping in is NOT an option!
Lots of love,
