Farmers Market Report: September 28-29, 2013
Meat Fest at the HOPE Market on Sunday, and maybe a little rain

Saturday morning promises to be chillier than most recent mornings and possibly even rainy. Rainy mornings are some of the best for markets, because it is not too crowded and all the produce stays crisp and perky. Rain usually puts the farmers in a good mood, too.
Dewberry Hill Farm (Really Good Chicken) will only be at the Sunset Valley Market this Saturday.
Breakfast and Lunch at the Market
Sprouted Wheat Pancake with apples, persimmons, pecan butter, and Country Style breakfast sausage; Sweet Potato Poutine with Mill-King curds, brown gravy, chorizo, and a fried duck egg; Roast Beef Sandwich with peppers, onions, Pepperjack cheese, and mayonnaise; Barbacoa Taco with nopales and peanut salsa; Horchata, and Cafe a la Olla.
Dai Due will not be at either market the weekend of October 5-6, so you might need to stock up this Saturday on essentials like breakfast sausage ($9/lb.) or bread and butter pickles ($8/jar). To pre-order from Dai Due, click here.
Used to be, there were Texas French Bread locations all over town. Now, you have to go to the flagship store on 29th Street, or the Sunset Valley Farmers Market on Saturday morning to get their superior breads. TFB makes absolutely the very best ciabatta in town, and lately it has been available is both plain and Rosemary.
See you at the markets!
