Update for Saturday, May 11th

Hi everyone, the market will be open this Saturday as usual.  Please see below for an update.

Update on locally grown items

The locally grown items are starting to roll in.  Based on my conversations with the farmers today, I expect to see several locally grown items including:

  • Ramp (probably the last week)
  • Asparagus
  • Rhubarb
  • Swiss Chard
  • Morrell mushrooms
  • Spring lettuce
  • Spinach
  • Micro greens

I also expect to see lots of hanging baskets, potted flowers, vegetable and flower transplants for the garden.

Check out Kistaco, Zang and Greenawalt stands for these items.

Speaking of rhubarb, I need to refresh my memory on how to cook rhubarb.  Mariam Rubin seems to always give us a timely recipe in the Post-Gazette.  Today she has a recipe for Rhubarb, strawberry and ricotta turnovers.  They look delicious.  Check it out.

http://www.post-gazette.com/stories/life/food/one-good-recipe-rhubarb-strawberry-and-ricotta-turnovers-with-cream-cheese-pastry-686835/

Finally, check out the really nice article that the P-G ran on Sunday on our very own Chris Bandy.  Chris crafts hand made products out of salvaged wood.  His work is just beautiful.  I am a big fan of his cutting boards, but he makes many different items and also does custom work.  He is at the market every Saturday.  Who knew he had so many other talents.

Update for Saturday, May 4th

Hi everyone, the market will be open this Saturday as usual.  Please see below for an update.  We will have some new locally grown items this week.

Update on Ramps
Ramp season is underway.  We had quite a lot of them at the market last week.  Between Rick Zang and Brian Greenawalt we had several bushels and they all sold.  I ran in to Chef Trevett Hooper from Legume and asked him how he was preparing them.  He is doing all sorts of things with them including pickling, making purees and grilling them.  He suggest taking the whole ramp, leaf and bulb, and drizzle with some olive oil, season with salt and pepper, and then cook them on the grill for a few minutes while you are grilling any kind of meat.  I did that and served it with some chciken from Kennedy's.

I also minced the ramps, leaf and bulb, and suteed them in olive oil.  Then served them on top of some steamed rice.  Very simple and very good. 

So please dont be afraid to try them.  Even 1/4 pound can add a lot of flavor to a dish.

Check out the article Bob Batz wrote about Ramps in the Post-Gazette last week:

Greenawalt's offerings will be similar to last week with local Amish grown items such as potatoes (sweet, yukon gold and white), onions, turnips, and winter squash. Brian told me he is heading out to Somerset next week to meet with the Amish farmers and see what is growing.  Hopefully they are getting things started in the high tunnels and we will have more locally grown items soon.
Brian still has the locally grown dried bean varieties include great northern and cranberry beans.

They also have shipped-in items including spinach, lettuce, cauliflower, broccoli, tomatoes, pears, grapes and bananas.

One special item this week is local maple syrup products from Wagner Sugar Camp.  They will have 2013 vintage syrup as well as maple sugar candy.

For more information:  http://www.stantonmilling.com

Greenawalt's always have fresh local eggs and many types of Amish canned items and dried beans.  They also have some cured meat items from Lancaster County- bacon and kielbasa.

Zang's Greenhouse...Rick will have locally grown lettuces, spring mix and radishes from Harvest Valley Farm.  These items were grown in high tunnels.  

Shipped in items include brussel sprouts golden beets, spinach, kale, peppers, asparagus, garlic, onions, green beans, potatoes, and several varieties of tomatoes.  Rapini is a possibility.  Florida citrus is still going strong with several orange varieties available. 

In the flower department- Rick will have some left-over Easter flowers.  He was not sure if he will have cut daffodils.

Kew Park Coffee Bar-  We have a fresh batch of beans that were roasted by Commonplace Coffee Roasters.  Also, will have fresh squeezed grapefruit, tangerine, and orange juices. 

Kallari Chocolate Update-

Last week we had sold some of the California dried fruit that was dipped n Kallari chocolate.  It was a nice item to have for Easter.  We plan to do that periodically in the future, but not every week.  But we do plan to continue to sell the Kallari chocolate bars. 

As way of background, Kallari chocolate was introduced to us by Kelsey Sheridan- she is here in Pittsburgh attending the Food Studies program at Chatham. She has been helping us out at the PA Made Cheese counter over the past few months. Kelsey has a special love for chocolate, and has a relationship with the Kallari chocolate growing coop in Ecuador.  In 2009 Kelsey actually spent 3 months there living on the cocoa plantations.

Kallari is a farmer-owned cooperative chocolate company, grown in the Ecuadorian Amazon.  The cocoa is made into chocolate in a facility that is only 4 hours away. There are 1000+ families involved in the cooperative, and most of the cocoa is grown on individual family plots. The benefit to this "tree-to-bar" production is that cocoa beans stay fresher longer, cocoa farmers (paid on average $500/year/family) receive 100% of the profits, this saves them from having to sell their land to oil companies, and it is more environmentally sustainable than shipping beans across the ocean. Plus, they are in the process of creating a LEED certified renewable chocolate factory even closer to the cocoa. They are one of a handful of companies like this in the world that is "tree-to-bar" (chocolate is produced near where cocoa beans are grown).

The chocolate also tastes delicious, and is certified organic.  My daughter Maria Lagnese did the dipping- using apricots, nectarines, cherries, pears, almonds and walnuts.  For more information on Kallari chocolate....

PA Made Cheese-  

I lot of people have been asking us for soft cheeses and also blue cheeses.  So I have been searching for these types of cheeses that are made in Pennsylvania.  On a recent trip to Philadelphia's Reading Terminal Market, I discovered Birchrun Hills Farm cheese.  They are located in Chester Springs, PA in the eastern part of the state.  They make a very nice Blue and a semi soft cheese called "Fat Cat."  Like the other cheese makers we work with, they raise the animals and also make the cheese in a small creamery on the farm.  Also like many other PA cheese makers, they got in to cheese making to save the dairy farm by making it more economically sustainable.  I have been speaking with Sue MIller, the owner and cheese maker, and she is sending us a few wheels that should arrive today.  Please stop buy and try some.

The Greek Gourmet- will have homemade spinach and meat pies at the market each week- in addition to 20+ flavors of hummus.  Stop by and talk to Jack at the booth.

BANDY Woodworks will have children's toys and games, and great items for the home and office using local reclaimed and salvaged wood and non-toxic finishes.  Cutting boards and wine racks make a great Valentine's gift for the foodie on your list!  Their booth is on the right when you walk in the front door from N. Sheridan, directly across from Greenawalt's.  Preview some of the items carried at the market by visiting  www.bandywoodworks.etsy.com.
