Rockin’ Root Veggies

The Winter Market is filled with fresh produce right from the farm.  What’s in season?  Sweet citrus, leafy greens and tons of root veggies!  Because root vegetables grow underground, they absorb a great amount of nutrients from the soil and a smart choice full of flavor. Not sure how to cook a turnip? Wondering what to do with a parsnip?  This week try one of these recipes.

Market Recipe: Orange Glazed Radish

Strength in Numbers (of Conscious Shoppers)

With all the local marketplaces and events this time of year, those of us who are embedded in our community of local do-ers and movers don’t necessarily need an annual tradition boosted by a credit card company to remember the importance of supporting local economy. Still, Small Business Saturday is another one of those special days each year that we love, appreciate, and look forward to.

custom_social-post-1

According to the National Retail Federation, about 164 million consumers are expected to shop on Black Friday in 2017. For the seventh year, Small Business Saturday plans to redirect some of those shoppers to local businesses across the country rather than big-box retailers. For every $100 spent at a local business, $43 stays in local economy, whereas only $13 stays in local economy if spent at a non-locally-owned business.

Market Recipe: Carrot Top Pesto

Carrot Top Pesto

Just about everyone who has come to our market in the past month has left with a bag full of carrots. Whether they are purple or orange, big or small, chances are they probably don’t even last through the weekend. There are so many ways to eat carrots: cooked or raw, with dinner or as a midday snack. However, it is those green, leafy carrot tops that are always cut off and thrown out without a second thought. This easy carrot top pesto recipe will ensure not a single bite of those fresh carrots go to waste.

Ingredients:

1/4 cup pepitas

1 garlic clove

1 & 1/2 cup coarsely chopped carrot tops

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1/3 cup olive oil

1/2 cup parmesan cheese

Directions:

Wash carrot tops well and set aside to dry. Add pepitas and garlic to a food processor and pulse, scraping off sides as needed. Begin to add carrot tops and pulse again until desired texture is reached. Lastly, add lemon juice and parmesan to the food processor while blade is running. Drizzle olive oil onto the sauce and enjoy.
