SoWa Winter Market 1/22

We had a small haul at the SoWa Market yesterday, but we got a good amount of produce including a few pounds of greenhouse tomatoes. Fresh tomatoes in January are a treat. I definitely prefer the taste of a fresh summer tomato, but these are grown with care by some great people and being able to enjoy them fresh this time of year is a real treat. 
Here is breakdown of everything we got:
Carrots, onions, a rutabaga, and a turnip from Silverbrook Farm. Garlic from Spring Brook Farm. Tomatoes from The Herb Lyceum. A 'small' brisket from John Crow Farm, and Truffle Pappardelle from Valicenti Organico
After shopping and chatting with some of our favorite vendors we decided to grab lunch by the SoWa Vintage Market at Roxy's Grilled Cheese one of our favorite local food trucks! We were pretty hungry too, as between Gail and I we nearly devoured 3 grilled cheese and a basket of truffle fries! We enjoyed our feast!
Front: Mighty Rib Melt. Middle: Mac & Chorizo, Green Muenster
Back: handcut truffle fries.
Not a bad way to spend part of Sunday afternoon!
Did you get any local produce, meat, or prepared goods this weekend??

I most certainly did! Hit up the Somerville Winter Farmer's Market at the Armory and picked up my Meat CSA share from Stillman's Farm. I am very excited to eat all the delicious looking pork! I got a bunch of cutlets. I also got a picnic cut that I will definitely be smoking.

Elwood!! I like the Somerville Market, and love the building. The armory is such a gerat space! I like to split my time between 2 or 3 winter markets, I enjoy supporting the variety of vendors and im weird like that.

Let me know what becomes of the smoked pork!!
