Market Recap: 2006: Weeks 04 - 06

A thorough-going cop out here in my "weekly" account of the Grand Lake Farmers' Market, piling up three weeks into a single post. Still it's been nearly two weeks since my last post, and some change is certainly afoot at the market.

A new stand has begun selling eggs. They arrived two Saturdays ago, and we picked up a package of quail eggs. Throw in the guy from Prather Ranch, and Lakeshore Avenue is just a fish monger away from meeting all of our shopping needs.

This past week the Lagier Ranches folks were down to Page Tangerines, looks like they may be done with Satsumas for the year.

Two weeks back, one of the guys from County Line Harvest Farms told me their chicories were pretty much gone. I took this somewhat hard, and he said people usually only got that way about their lettuces. Last week we ran into the same guy on our way to their booth. He clapped me on the back and said they had one more small box. Next week though, all bets are off.

You should still be able to get Romanesco at the Tip Top Produce stand.
