Here at Food52, we like to talk about what we’re buying at the market: what’s new, what’s exciting, the market's best finds. This is our water cooler talk. And now, we want you to join in.
We may be clad in corduroy, and reluctantly grabbing light jackets -- just in case -- but what we're not hesitating about? Heading to the farmers market. Here’s what the Food52 editors can’t wait to pick up this weekend -- and why you should be adding it to your bag, too.
One taste of these intensely flavored grapes and you're sure to want more -- at least that’s the case with Catherine. She tried her very first Concord grape this week (courtesy of Kristen's fire escape), and needless to say, is headed to the market to get more. If you’re crushing on them too, pick up a few clusters to use in a cocktail or bake into a batch of focaccia.
Stock up: You need onions for everything. After all, as Deborah Madison says, “If I’ve run out of onions, I feel at a loss as to how to begin dinner…” But onions aren't just the start of other dishes, we've got 7 ways to make a meal of them, too.
Pick up some of these un-ripe fruits (yup, we eat them before they reach full maturity) for chilaquiles verdes. Non-meat eaters: Skip the chicken, and eat it with fried eggs and extra cheese. You'll probably want to make sure you have enough tomatillos to make green gazpacho and some salsa verde too.
Tell us: What are you hoping to find at the market this week?
