You may think of eggplant as only the Italian variety - large, oblong and deep purple. But our farmers grow more than that one variety. Check out our produce offerings and talk with the farmers. You'll learn there are countless varieties out there, with different flavors and textures. thekitchn.com picked 10 of their favorites to share so the next time you're at the market, you'll be inspired to try whichever you may find.
Here's the line-up for this Saturday. Looks like the weather is going to be lovely. Hope to see you there.
Our recipe this week features Rissole . A rissole is a small patty enclosed in pastry, or rolled in breadcrumbs, with savory ingredients, usually baked or fried. Ours features zucchini.
We look forward to seeing you at the market - outdoors at the Center School parking lot.
