Market Watch: Garlic Scapes, Blenheims and Blackberries For the Picking

I spotted some strikingly beautiful garlic scapes at the Marin Roots Farm booth last Saturday. Scapes are the slender shoots that emerge from hard-neck garlic varieties in late spring and early summer. They’re usually removed to allow the garlic plant to focus its energy on the growing bulb. Garlic scapes have a lovely mild flavor and a wonderful texture similar to young asparagus or pole beans. They can be grilled, added to stir fries or salads and they make a fantastic pesto.

Market Watch: Nopales, Dandelions and Finally—Peaches!

Tory Farms returned to the market last Saturday with baskets of their lovely May Crest peaches. The May Crest variety is one of the first to appear for the season and is remarkably sweet and flavorful. Rebecca and Tory Torosian of Tory Farms grow a wide variety of peaches, nectarines, and pluots throughout the season. This week, Rebecca tells me they’ll also have Rose Diamond nectarines and possibly a few of their wonderful apricots.

Market Watch: Cherries Are In, Asparagus Is (Almost) Out and B.Y.O.B.

This weekend, CUESA will kick off the next phase of our Waste Wise Market Initiative by becoming the first plastic-bag free farmers market in San Francisco. If you forget to B.Y.O.B., vendors will still be dispensing paper and/or compostable bags at their booths and we’ll also be offering re-usable and washable 100% cotton Eco-Bags for sale at our information booth.
