What a blessing!

Although Green Bay has a really good farmer’s market from June through November, we don”t have the luxury of a year-round market like those of you in California or even NYC – that is, until this year. The New Leaf Market, a co-operative market, has been hosting a twice monthly farmers market this winter. And what a blessing it has been.
Today, Jeanne and I went sort of early (the market only runs from 8:00 – noon; we got there about 8:30) and we were able to bring home a bounty of food that will not last us until the next market on January 28 (the last two will be on February 18 & 25) but it will do a lot towards getting us there.

Below is a picture of our haul.  It includes

• 1 whole chicken and 4# of chicken wings from Nami Moon Farms in Custer WI (we’re a member of their CSA)
• Chickpea (with coriander, fennel and black pepper) and Triple Seeded (pumpkin, sunflower and poppy) crackers from Elemental Ovens in Manawa, WI
• Butter Chard, Bok Choi, Salad Mix, Shallots, and Baby Carrots from Twin Elms Gardens in Pulaski, WI
• Rainbow Trout (incredibly fresh!) from Branch River Trout Hatchery via Trust Local Foods in Chilton, WI
• Yellow Beets from a vendor I only know as Lenny
• Parmigiano Reggiano and Pecorino Romano from Nala’s Fromagerie in Green Bay
• Blushing Peach Fruit Spread from Mudd Creek in Appleton, WI

Bounty from the January 14, 2012 Winter Market

With such a nice winter market and the World Champion Green Bay Packers just down the road, wouldn’t you really rather live in Green Bay?

  1. Jeanne and Curt,

    Just found this post and want to thank you for enjoying and talking about our crackers. They’re wonderful with hummus BTW.
