There's still time to pay a visit...
Thank you to the farmer who is clearing out his leek patch to make way for the tomatoes. Today the tiniest, little baby leeks were available. They were even smaller than the fresh green garlic.
You thought carrots were just orange, right? Wrong. Carrots can be red, pink, peachy or golden yellow too.
At the recent First Annual 2005 Independent Food Festival Awards? Jeanne, at World on a Plate awarded a Best Use of a Tortilla honour to Cocina Primavera, one of the stands in the market who make tasty Mexican takeout plates. Jeanne's post inspired me to try them out for this morning's breakfast. I took a plate of their spicy, delicious huevos rancheros topped with two perfectly cooked eggs, a pumpkin seed topping and creamy, delicious slices of avocado. I sat on a bench to devour it, looking over the water to the industrial part of the East Bay, but daydreaming about warmer, sunnier times last year in Playa del Carmen. The style of the food conjured up that happy memory.
