JFX farmers' market report
I didn't get my usual Waverly market report this weekend, so here's one from the Sunday JFX market.
My husband and daughter headed there this morning while my son and I watered the garden and played Monopoly.
They came home with some good-looking bacon and spareribs from Truck Patch Farms, a bunch of red-skinned potatoes, fantastic cherries and strawberries that were, well, kinda blah.
I know local strawberry season is winding down, but I've had more than one underwhelming basket from the farmers' market this year.
The ones my husband and daughter brought home were red to the center and all that. And the first one I bit into was wonderfully sweet. But the rest I tried just didn't have much flavor, even when I sprinkled on some sugar.
Anybody know if it was it a bad year for strawberries? Or have I just been buying from the wrong farmers?
