Treat yourself to a mid-week pick-me-up at the Wednesday market

Just a few examples of the great finds at the Wednesday market.    Beautiful spring bouquets from Ridgeview Farm — just the beginning of their bouquet season and they also have some lovely little heads of lettuce.  As well as their fine produce Ortiz Bros. has fragrant, fresh lilacs .  Armstrong Valley has lot of lovely shallots.  Triple T is spring all over with broccoli side shoots and purple mizuna –The delicate leaves add crisp, fresh beauty to a salad of other micro greens or mixed with white daikon. Milder than arugula, the peppery mustard flavor is an excellent addition to soups and stir-fries, as well.   Redel’s has bulk, unflavored almonds at a great prices.

If don’t feel like cooking,  let Lata or Mi Fiesta take care of that for you.  Pictured here is a sweet corn tamale with chipotle salsa  Each is pretty darn good on its own and together – a maiz- ing.  And Lata has the best tikka masala anywhere.
