Market Watch: Eat Your Greens

Lulu Meyer, associate director of operations at CUESA, brings us weekly updates for the best of the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market—rain (and oh, is it raining) or shine.

Winter greens, packed with good-for-you vitamins, are at their prime right now. Braised, sautéed or wilted in soups they add great texture and flavor to many recipes. With all the the rain and gloomy weather this week I started dreaming about things that are best cooked slowly and eaten out of bowls. At the market I gravitated towards the beautiful greens currently available and found some of my personal favorites.

Market Watch: Cowgirl's New Cheeses

Lulu Meyer gives us the scoop on the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market.

It’s a new year and many of our market sellers have exciting new products in the works. Over the next few months we’ll see the unveiling of everything from whole-wheat cake mix, to walnut oil to small-batch preserves. Needless to say, there will be lots to taste and enjoy in 2010. This week I was particularly excited to hear about these new cheeses from Cowgirl Creamery.

It’s hard to believe the Thursday market has been open for less than a year. The local and national press, as well as food bloggers far and near have declared it a hit! This market was a personal labor of love for me and I’m thrilled to see what it offers each week—from unique lunch specials to the ever-changing bounty of seasonal fruits and vegetables.

Hoard Your Gourd: Pumpkin Shortage 2009

Yesterday I spent the morning calling around to my doctor and every Walgreens, Costco and Long's Drugs within easy access of my house. I was looking, of course, for the illusive seasonal flu shot, which due to all the strident warnings from every major media outlet to GET YOUR SHOT, is now nearly impossible to get in San Francisco. If someone decided to start a black market flu shot trade, he or she would have a tidy little business. Just saying. But today, between washing my hands every ten minutes and admonishing sick coworkers for coming to the office, I turned my attention to another shortage: The Great Pumpkin Shortage of Halloween 2009.
