Last Saturday we paid another visit to the Piazza at Schmidt's in order to procure some late winter fare from those fantastic farmers' market denizens brave enough and committed enough to sate us local food lovers through the cold months. I am walking pretty well lately and it's been too long since I have hobnobbed with fellow Philadelphia foodies. I'm really glad I made the trip, as usual.
This time around we met Dan from Landisdale Farms. We picked up some Japanese Sweet Potatoes which we have not tried yet but are eager to. Dan described them as a little dryer than the American version we are used to. After we try them, I'll be sure to let you all know.
Highland Orchards, another Piazza favorite. The flavor of these mushrooms was so rich and the eggs so good. It was better than Shoney's at my house. I think I will be having house guests more often. This market is every weekend on Saturdays from 10-2. If you dig on local and organic foods and find them in short supply during the cold months, this place is for you.
