I was shooting a wedding last weekend, so I missed the market last week. This week we bought lots of tomatoes and some really amazing camembert from Monforte Dairy, which has already found itself inside some sweet & savoury crepes along with some apples and the tofu bacon.
I love those baby heirloom tomatoes so much! Lately Richard and I have been living off of “FLTs”: Facon (aka: The tofu bacon above), lettuce & tomato sandwiches. Yum.
I am absolutely loving those colourful little baby tomatoes! I got them from Cookstown Greens. They’re so sweet and delicious that my two nieces (who were also at the market with me this weekend) ate a whole pint to themselves as they walked around. It’s great to see kids enjoying vegetables.
By the way, all of the cheese that I post is from Monforte Dairy. They make the best cheese at the market (in my humble opinion).
Yay, it’s zucchini season! Those yellow zukes were only $2.00 for all 4, and the same guy also sold me that gigantic bunch of beautiful kale for $2.50. Also, aren’t those heirloom zucchinis adorable? I have no idea what I’ll do with them. I think that I bought them solely because they were cute and photogenic.
This one’s a week late because the weather has been so nice that I’ve been spending all of my spare time outside and I’ve been thoroughly neglecting this poor blog. The tofu jerkey is from the same guy who I get those smokey tofu deli strips from. He’s great and I hope that he sticks around for the winter. An in case you’re wondering, I’m not vegetarian. I just eat vegetarian at home 90% of the time.
This edition of “Market Finds” is brought to you by Richard, who went to the Riverdale Farm farmer’s market on Tuesday while I was working. The vanilla powder smells heavenly, by the way.
I didn’t forget to do a “Market Finds” for this week… It’s just a bit late. I just got back from spending 2 weeks in Belgium! We got back on Friday and I’ve been trying to get all of my photo editing caught up with before I start blogging about all the great food and beer that we had on the trip. Stay tuned!
