I finally got the chance to check out the Trout Lake Farmer’s Market last weekend. It was probably one of the best markets in terms of location, market vendors, and food. I picked up some delicious nut pate, bratwurst, cherry tomato plants and bags full of local beets. I also picked up some sea asparagus from one of my favourite farmers whom I cannot remember the name of but he always has the best, most unique produce ever (he’s the big hippy guy with long reddish-brownish hair if that helps!?). He was the guy I bought the stinging nettles from this past spring for my stinging nettle pesto. This time around he had sea asparagus, dandelion greens, and a number of interesting greens and weeds.
Today, I made a sea asparagus stir fry.
