THANKS TO THE GENEROSITY OF KATHARINE HEPBURN, A BEAUTIFUL GLUTEN-FREE VEGETARIAN LUNCH


Here's a salad made of ingredients bought at the farmers' market and used the same day--red oak leaf lettuce, low-acid yellow tomatoes, yellow kirby cumbers, roughly chopped fresh parsley and one red radish. No dressing. Not necessary with this freshness and flavor!
The real lesson was with the beans I bought. See the uncooked snips of beans in the tiny pink bowl? The eggplant colored beans are in the mix of cooked ones. Can you find them? I barely could. They are the beans that look slightly greyish next to the other green beans. Nope, it's not the lighting, but the beans which, after a brief steaming, lost all their purple except for the muddiness. What frauds those little beans turned out to be! (Delicious, though.)

Beautiful post!

I'm the community manager for the farmers' market website, What is Fresh (http://www.whatisfresh.com) and wanted to get in touch.

We're looking for 'market reporters' at various local farmers' markets around the city. These 'reporters' are people who already fairly consistently attend a certain greenmarket. Basically, you just send a quick list of what looks good that day, if a vendor isn't there, if there are any specials etc.

It's about a 5 minute commitment--and your report will get posted on our site for our users to see!

Please email me if you'd like to learn more...

Thanks,
Meaghin Kennedy
