Final Days of the Rock Center Farmer’s Market…
Tomorrow is the last day for the Rock Center Farmer’s Market. I will miss it. It was nice to be able to see some fruits and vegetables in their semi-natural state, as opposed to what we’re used to here in Midtown. If the two could talk I imagine their conversation to go like this:
Farmer’s Market Vegetables: “Aren’t you jealous? I get to appear in my natural state, and be purchased close to home, by people who truly care about food. They are going to take me home and do something really special with me.”
Midtown Vegetable: “That’s lame. I get to travel thousands of miles from where I grew up, only to be chopped up, made to look a lot prettier than I actually taste, and then combined with 5 other friends on top of a pile of lettuce and eaten by some rich Midtown business person! That’s much more exciting…”
Top whatever sandwich you have with some fresh cheese, add a piece of fruit to your lunch, or pick up some stuff to make dinner with. I did my final walk through yesterday, and picked up some fresh basil and grape tomatoes… which last night got turned into this (photo after the jump)
Cooking at home every night for my wife, is how I justify eating disgusting cart food every day for lunch!
