Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)

a scotch bonnet from Calvert Farms

Farmers markets are making a come back.  A great way to spend a weekend morning is to stroll through the stands, admire the fresh offerings, and get inspired to try something new.

There are a couple of markets in my area, but my favorite CSA provider is Calvert Farms in Maryland ( http://www.calvertfarm.com/fallcsa_app.htm – Calvert hosts a market at Getty Park in Silver Spring, MD, every Saturday from 9 to 12 a.m.).  The quality is undeniable but what’s really inspiring are some of the quirky selections that can take you in a whole new direction.  Two recent gems are fractal cauliflower and watermelon radish.

fractal cauliflower. they can grow in several colors. & the taste? dios mio!

watermelon radish, a whole new experience

I’ve had a lot of fun with both.

    Agree that Calvert Farm is great and the watermelon radishes and cauliflower were delicious and beautiful. See you next weekend at the Getty Park Farmers Market they host!
