Yesterday afternoon my phone rang, well actually buzzed, pulsed, or whatever or however you describe the noises phones make nowadays. Nothing special really, it beeps, burps, and buzzes many times during the work day. But this time it was one of my favorite FOYs (Friends of Yoso), Karyn, who wanted to remind me that the Mission Hills Farmers Market's maiden voyage was today. Bless her heart, Karyn is so thoughtful, she puts up with a lot.... to get to the point, Karyn has pet guinea pigs, and well, I love Cuy, just not in the way Karyn loves them(they are delicious!!). So there's always the stray Cuy joke when we're kidding around. Even though I had seen the signs, I'd totally forgotten.....
The Mission Hills Farmer's Market takes place on Falcon Street, Fridays from 3pm to 7pm. For me, it's the perfect stop on the drive home.
We love Sadie Rose Baking Company.
Brandt Beef is also present.
I'm really hoping this Farmer's Market does really well. It will be a regular Friday-on-the-way-home-from-work stop for me.
Mission Hill Farmer's Market
Fridays from 3 pm to 7pm.
Here's what I picked up this week......
Those are mung beans in the foreground, not quite sprouts, but getting there, cost me 75 cents from the Sungrown stand. Yes, there are microgreens available, but I want semi-sprouted mung bean sprouts.... and the young man manning the booth was kind enough to instruct me on how to get these to the "age" I wanted them.
In our mind, there were definite winna's, and not so winna's among the bounty:
For us, the Malted Brown Bread from Sadie Rose was just great..... I was munching on the ends while making a nice pot of tea(Laoshan Tea) for us. I love the mild chew, along with the complex, and almost molasses-like sweet hints in the bread. The not so winna..... the Noah Bedoahs..... I did notice that they were darker then I remembered. The first thing the Missus did was break a cookie in half... it was not as crumbly. The shortbread flavor was lacking. There seemed to be the addition of chocolate chips to the piece of chocolate in the middle of the cookie. It was less sweet than we recalled. We used to drive out to Voltaire to get these, but it seems like they've changed the recipe???? Still, Sadie Rose........ we'll be there every week!
