Market Manager of the Nevada/Vernon County Farmer's Market
Invited me to visit their market as a
Saturday I was up really early
to load the car
and travel 20 miles East
to the little town in Missouri
where we lived for 17 years
I set up my "station"
For it was a cooking with herbs day
And for tasting . . .
Cut into sampling fingers
So that herbal butter
(we tasted first chive, then thyme and lastly tarragon)
and peach rosemary jam
could be slathered on
And I always like to have an herbal sweet
Lemon lavender cakes
And a big jar of garden herbs
Snippets were used in the pasta salad
which we also tasted.
Vegetables, pasta, oil and vinegar and a generous amount of minced herbs.
I always enjoy my stints at the Farmer's Market and this was my first time in Nevada
I hope they invite me back for I had a great time.
And they have a great market.
I ended up bringing home . . .
local raspberries and strawberries
2 butterfly bushes
And some Gobbler Roost Salad Dressing
(which I don't normally buy -- salad dressing, that is -- but Kathy's is superb!)
It's Monday and I'm sharing my Farmer's Market food with Yvonne at Stone Gable for What's On the Menu Monday
