Here is one example of produce I cannot get at the grocery store. I spotted these baby eggplant, white, yellow, green/purple and had to buy some. I was just thinking that I wanted to use up the rest of last weeks tomatoes with eggplant in a sauce for pasta, perfect.
I bought some white baby eggplant a few weeks earlier at the Flea market, because I noticed that the Vietnamese shoppers were going crazy over it, and had to try it! I sometimes wish I could speak their language and ask them for cooking lessons!
Here is what I brought home from the Market, it seemed to be a "yellow and purple" day.
broccolini (I can't get organic in the stores, this is for salad)
purple bell peppers! (I have never seen them in purple before)
baby eggplant, all colors
yellow swiss chard (I love when they bundle only the yellow color! The red color in the "rainbow" always bleeds onto the other colors)
tiny red (purple!) onions, (I love the small size, because, usually, I only need a small amount for salads, and the vendor gave me a free bulb of garlic!)
1 purple, and 2 green plums
1 1/2lb. red flame grapes ( I ate most of them on the way home!)
Brentwood corn, 5 ears (I have to buy "just picked that morning" corn!)
I'm usually busy Sunday mornings and rarely get a chance to go the the Farmers Market in Campbell...so it was a good day! A good day in my good life!
