Fulton Street Farmer’s Market

23 Aug

I queried Grace Young (author of “Stir Frying to the Sky’s Edge” wok cookbook) about a particular recipe yesterday. I had an inkling of what she might say, and sure enough, her response to what ingredients would work was a resounding “Pair with seasonal vegetables” – always a brilliant idea!

So off I went to one of Grand Rapids’ oldest and largest farmers markets – the Fulton Street Farmer’s Market. I could smell the fresh produce as I got out of my car – and the aromas got even more delectably pungent and delightful as I walked through the myriad of vendors. Produce is on full blast this time of year – potatoes, tomatoes, beans, squash, onions, radishes, peaches, raspberries, blackberries, plums…the list is rather extensive now. Here’s a link to their website where you can preview what’s in season

I managed to score some awesome green onions, a couple of beautifully-colored peppers, some summer squash and just look at those eggplants – gorgeous!

My wok will be busy the rest of the week – can’t wait to see what culinary creations the produce will produce…stay tuned!
