Recipe of the Week:
Beet & Shrimp Winter Salad

We have tons of greens and beets, so why not throw together a salad? Don’t forget you can use beet greens as your base too. Top it off with market fresh shrimp and you have a healthy and delicious meal. The recipe is for one serving, but it’s easy to multiply for families.

What’s your favorite dish to make at home from the goods you buy at our market? Share them with us on Instagram (@crescentcityfarmersmkt) and have your recipe featured in our weekly newsletter!
