Fresh Item of the Week
Tuesday Market, January 17, 2012 | 9 am - 1 pm
We love that Timmy Perrilloux and his more bang for your buck vegetables are in season. It's a great sight to see his truck stacked high with jumbo size carrots, cauliflower, romanesco, sweet white turnips and kohlrabi, not to mention his giant bunches of mustard greens, collards and kale. All this beautiful produce makes us want to find new creative ways to eat our vegetables. Share your favorite ways to eat your veggies on our CCFM facebook page.
Thursday Market, January 19, 2012 | 3 pm - 7 pm
Join James Beard Award-winning TV food personality Andrew Zimmern of the Travel Channel's "Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern" and WWNO "Louisiana Eats!" host Poppy Tooker as they cook up shrimp etouffee for the crowd at the CCFM next Thursday, January 26, beginning at 3pm. Tastes of the authentic New Orleans dish will be given in exchange for contributions to support CCFM community programming. Watch Zimmern and Tooker shop for ingredients directly from local farmers and fishers, then learn how to make the iconic dish. The free event will be recorded for an upcoming episode of the new MSN web series "Appetite for Life with Andrew Zimmern" and Poppy Tooker's "Louisiana Eats!" radio program on WWNO 89.9FM.
Saturday Market, Janaury 21, 2012 | 8 am - 12 noon
If you haven't been to our Saturday market lately, you're missing out! We have several Saturday-only vendors: Arthur Jones sharpens your knives while you shop; Lisa Barbato of Rivista has flaky, buttery pastries (market staff loves her savory stuffed pastries), Donald Keller of Bayou Farms has fresh pastured chickens - whole birds and cuts, including soup packs; Tad Ledet of Cajun Growers brings greenhouse cucumbers, in addition to tri-colored cherry and beefsteak tomatoes; and Paw Paw has honey harvested from his Algiers hives. Stop by the market to enjoy these Saturday-only vendors this week!
Recipe of the Week
We've got turnip greens down, but are always looking for recipe ideas for the roots. This Turnip Casserole calls for grated cheddar or Asiago, both of which are available from CCFM vendor Ryals' Dairy.
