Waverly market report
Alan Morstein of Regi's didn't send me his usual Waverly farmers' market report Saturday, and that got me worrying. Had the restaurateur fallen off the locavore wagon and gone Sysco on us?
Not a chance. Alan did go to Waverly and even wrote something up about it. But he e-mailed it to someone else by mistake. So, even though it's late, here's Alan's dispatch from the market. It will give you an idea of what to look for next week. LV
It was a cornucopia of local at Waverly today. New local arrivals included BLUEBERRIES, apricots, cucumbers, cherries, zucchini, squash, yellow zucchini, radishes, cabbage, leaf lettuce, green peas (always a line), pickles, beets, hydroponic lettuce and tomatoes, mushrooms and sweet red peppers.
Many farmers anticipate the return of Maryland corn in the next 1 1/2 to two weeks.
The market was very busy at 7 a.m. as shoppers realize the taste and quality of farm to table.
