I love farmer’s market veggies, so naturally when I received this message from my friend Rita last week “Hi, I have some extra spinach, dill, chard, turnips, arugula and Tuscan kale from my farmer’s market friend. Would you ladies want some?” “Delivery included 😉. Which would you like, some of each? How could my answer for farm fresh veggies delivered to our door be anything but a resounding, “YES, PLEASE. Thank you so much!” My friend Rose requested a combo of spinach, chard, arugula and kale. I asked for all of it! Rita’s response was “Ok I’ll drop them off at both your porches tomorrow afternoon. You’re welcome!”
I shared some greens with my friend Devi and used the rest to make a bunch of greens-inspired dishes. I made a kale pasta, a spinach and potato curry, a Swiss chard and paneer curry, arugula and mushroom pizza, and I used the turnips in a winter vegetable pasta primavera.
If you are curious how Rita developed a farmer’s market friendship with one of her local farmer’s market vendors take a look at this story that I posted when Rita dropped off a giant box of over 20 bags of greens from her farm stand friend.! A farm stand friendship and a giant delivery of farm fresh greens.
Thank you Rita for your generosity and for taking the time to deliver your farmer’s market bounty!
