The month of May kicked off with some unusually warm but welcome weather.
At the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market, chefs are always on the lookout for new and exciting crops to incorporate into their menus. Dirty Girl Produce is one stand they flock to. In summer and fall, Dirty Girl’s tender, fresh shelling beans and Early Girl tomatoes find their way onto many local menus. In the winter months, their chards, dried beans and root vegetables are in high demand, and when spring hits, their leeks, baby cabbages, strawberries and chicories turn many heads.
CUESA’s Market to Table programs have returned to the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market, and each month we pick a seasonal item to feature and celebrate. At our Citrus Celebration this Saturday, February 16, we’re showcasing all things citrus, from pomelos to lemons. Come down to the market for a day of tasting and cooking with these winter delights.
