Waverly Market report

Waverly MarketAlan Morstein of Regi's graciously provides today's Waverly Farmer's Market report. Think of it as a road map for the market under the JFX if you're heading there for opening day tomorrow. Here's Alan. LV

Today @ Waverly:

Gunpowder Bison Trading Company features great for the grill Buffalo Burgers (cook to med-rare) no fat and will over cook quickly. Italian, Sage and Sweet Buffalo sausage look like a good idea for this weekend.

Local produce today: mint, spring onions, red and green leaf lettuce, parsley, spinach, Swiss chard, chives, scallions, spring onions, Boston lettuce, rhubarb and plenty of local asparagus in all sizes, although you have to ask since some asparagus on display is from New Jersey.

Tom McCartney, a.k.a. "The Bean Man," was the only vendor to present local strawberries from the Eastern Shore. He called them "Sweet Charlie's." They are smaller than the North Carolina strawberries, however much sweeter and more fragrant.

All the other produce is on rental from Florida.

Thanks for the update, hitting the JFX market tomorrow. Mmmmmm buffalo. Is is raised "organic" or no indications on that?

OMG the spring onions, asparagus, and strawberries were out of control. They were ALMOST enough to keep my from getting extra CurryShack. Almost.

Just smelling the berries is outrageous.

There will be asparagus, shitake, and strip steak stir fry in my future. And in the future of several friends. Yummmmmm.

can vouch for asparagus and strawberries! very nice, world of difference from imported!

Big help, Waverly info helped me at the JFX. I thought everything would be for sale. I knew what to look for & I got it.

Meekrat, I haven't checked in for a while, but read your query about bison. Bison growers are forbidden by law from putting any kind of additive into the animals' feed. I guess that means GBT bison is organic. If you visit the farm (ranch?) you'll see young bison grazing in fields alongside the road, all the way up to the house. It's tasty stuff!

What's GLBT bison?

Owlie, I suppose there will be a booth for them at Pride.

Owlie, they're a sister group of the Bears.
