Rainy Day Farmers’ Market

We are fortunate to have a year-round farmers’ market nearby though I have to say my track record for attending during the cooler months isn’t very good. But I’m going to try to change that this year because I had such a good time during my visit yesterday. I was on a quest for persimmons and apples and I figured I could throw in a fresh drip coffee and one of those parmesan croissant twists from Margaret’s French Bakery that are as fun to hold as they are to eat. Just look at the colors I found! Those watermelon radishes are so beautiful and they even taste good. Last night I ate them thinly sliced and lightly salted with baguette and butter. They would be so much fun to serve at a party or for company. On a warm weather market day I probably wouldn’t have gotten close enough to the stand to even have noticed those radishes. But on a cool day, you almost feel like you have the market to yourself.
