A-2 Farmer's Market #6

This summer, the Ann Arbor Farmer's Market has become a integral part of our weekly shopping ritual. We go there practically every week and it has been interesting to see what new vegetables have come to the market and which one is gone for the season.

It's fun to be a part of the crowd as we go from vendor to vendor looking at the different vegetables, fruits, and herbs on display, touching them with your hands and eyes, and comparing them mentally with each other.

This week, as I mentioned before, we picked up peaches, plums and blueberries along with veggies. I also occasionally pick up fresh flower bouquets which last up to 2 weeks.


We came back with zucchini (made aloo Zucchini), eggplant, radish (ate mooli paratha after ages!), potato, beans, peaches, blueberries and tomatoes.

I also picked up some fresh ground buckwheat flour (not in the picture) from a vendor who had a variety of stone ground flours like whole wheat, spelt. It also came with a recipe sheet and I will be posting our weekend recipe soon.
