Headhouse and a New Spot for the Feed!
If you're a locavore who goes out of his or her way to eat seasonally, then, all jokes aside, this really is the most wonderful time of the year! Tomatoes, Sweet Corn, Peaches, Apples, Pears, Onions... Potatoes and Cider right around the corner... this is when so many of the things we all enjoy eating - things whose qualities are only best enjoyed in season... all of these things are ripe and in prime production!
So there you go. While I may have been remiss in my lack of posting, the Feed did make two market trips this weekend (We are counting Monday since Sarah took off for my birthday. My birthday was actually Friday, but I am sort of like Lincoln; I get a whole weekend. I think banks might have been closed. I digress…). On Sunday, we made out weekly appearance at the Headhouse Farmers’ Market in Philadelphia proper.
I had to see Ben Wenk over at Three Springs. His description of the season’s bounty needed to be verified. I can now verify. Coming away with only pounds of Crestview Peaches and Gingergold Apples belies that there wasn’t a huge selection. It is only my budget that stopped me from purchasing heirloom tomatoes, yellow Bartlett pears, blackberries and a capital ETC. of other delectable delights. Incidentally, I had one of those Crestviews today and the juice ran down my arm. Nice.
