Another trip to the Farmer’s Market. This time we actually talked to Keegan and Liam (of our favorite stand). Keegan recognized M, as they’ve talked about being a “grower” versus a “farmer”. We talked about marketing the vegetables. Not surprisingly, big piles draw people in. They did share the secret behind their big beautiful radishes and carrots. It’s the soil. Apparently it’s quite rare and is only in 3 places in the country. It’s a black soil that’s very light. So the vegetables can grow very big, versus vegetables in dense, more compact soil.
Our salad was great. Just tossed with a little olive oil and white balsamic. With a classic baguette from Eataly. And some nice rose wine.
