We have a full compliment of meat choices in the Greenmarket today. Violet Hill has pork and Belle Rouge chickens. Quattro's has all sorts of poultry, soups, and sausages. Lynhaven has goat meat and Three Corner Field Farm has lamb. The buffalo meat stand is here and Flying Pig has pork and poultry. Three Corner Field Farm and Lynhaven have cheeses as well. and Three Corner Field Farm has delicious sheeps milk yogurt.
All the winter stalwarts are here this week, including Ronnybrook Dairy, D'Attolico greens and sprouts, Cato cheeses, Paffenroth produce, Locust Grove and others with apples and cider, and Beth's Jam. Our Daily Bread is here and Shushan has good looking hydroponic tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, and cut herbs. If you're into wheat grass, you'll find that here as well.
Last week I bought a smoked ham hock from one of the farmers and made "stone soup" -- that is, without a recipe. I used mixed beans from the summer greenmarket that I froze (bought from Mountain Sweet Berry and Berried Treasures last September), stock from last week's batch, onion, carrots, celery, and frozen heirloom tomatoes from last summer. I used dried herbs from Stokes Farm. It was so delicious that I ate it all week.
