Bonus Wed. Post For Local Yokels: Farmers' Market at Brown

Brown Dining Services - Farmers' Market:

Every Wednesday, 11 - 2 p.m., this fall on Wriston Quad. You’ll find farmers from across the region offering a selection of locally grown vegetables and fruits and other edible goodies. From fresh-pressed apple cider to purple cabbages, from Macoun apples to homemade salsas, purchases at the market support local family farms and producers.
I think I'm a gonna go get me some eggs...I think enough time has passed since that quasi-dinosaur-looking thing dropped out of my other free range/wild egg order last spring. I'm an easily upset nature girl!

I've never heard of a macoun apple. Thought I knew them all.

That's the cool thing about farmer's markets--you get diverse produce that's local! Mono culture has seriously whittled down the genetic diversity of produce--red so-called delicious appls, anyone? We bought some really interesting looking cucumbers from some Cambodian farmers, and next week we are getting "unwashed" eggs--hmmmmm.

Thanks for commenting!

You have definitely been missing out on the macoun apples. They are the best!!!! They are a hard, not too bitter kind. My FAVORITE. I look forward to this time of year when they are in season.
