The Bel Air Farmer’s Market on Saturday was a success and I was able to come home with lettuce, green onions, cookies, potatoes and asparagus. Yum! I cooked some of the potatoes and the asparagus last night with steak on the grill. An easy local meal. I sauteed the asparagus in olive oil and garlic for a quick, simple way to serve the stalks. I will whip up cream of asparagus soup later in the week. I don’t know if you can preserve asparagus by freezing or canning but the thought of squishy asparagus is not appetizing so I will just enjoy it while it is here.
Brad’s Produce opens this week (April 14) with the following hours:
Mon – Sat 8am – 6pm
Sunday 10am – 4pm
Sunny Hill is already open 10-6 and the Farmer’s Market will be going again on Saturday.
