[Superstruct] This week at the market

I’ve been trying to get to the PSU market earlier to beat the crowds. There’s a great mix of summer veggies like tomatoes and peppers, and fall items like beets and squash right now. I was hoping to find more table grapes like the selection we got from Ayers Creek Farm at the Hillsdale market last week, but mostly I saw concords. So we skipped those and picked up apples instead. Also no sign of quince. Maybe I’ll walk over and see if the tree listed on Urban Edibles is ripe.

The haul:
Spring Hill Farm: beets, carrots, a Walla Walla onion, a zucchini, a green pepper
Sun Gold Farm: Gala apples
Groundwork Organic Farm: eggplant
Deck Family Farm: pastured chicken

Almost bought more hazelnuts from Freddy Guys, but we’re not quite out yet. I keep eyeing their wild rice, too. I don’t know what time of year they harvest it, but it seemed like there was more to pick from this time: whole rice, broken pieces, and a pilaf mix.

Several vendors had dried beans, so this is a good time to look for that as well.
