Saturday Farmers Market in Sag Harbor
I haven’t been to the Sag Harbor Farmers Market in a while. The market is every Saturday during the growing season and is operated by Slow Food -- rain or shine and today it was raining but that didn't keep me and my dog Sassy from taking the trip.
You can go to the Sag Harbor Farmers Market and stock your fridge for a week with locally made and locally grown and locally caught foods from: Taste of North Fork, The Seafood Shop, Blue Duck Bakery, Open Minded Organics (OMO), Mecox Dairy, Bees Needs, and fruits and vegetables from several farms -- Quail Hill and homegrown produce from Bette Lacina and Dale Haubrich (the East End’s most sustainable couple according to “Edible East End” magazine).
I stocked up on some of my favorite prepared goodies from Taste of North Fork – Lemon Four Ways vinegar made from grapes from local vineyards and lemon scented local and organic herbs, strawberry rhubarb jam and rhubarb relish, Bees Needs raw, unfiltered and local honey, mushrooms from OMO, Mecox Dairy gruyere cheese and the cutest little cucumbers with stripes and moddled markings that were less than an inch big and look like watermelons (after doing some research I learned that cucumbers and watermelons belong to the same botanical family). Aren't they CUTE!
Tonight, I served roasted pork tenderloin with Rhubarb Relish which was delicious along side the Open Minded Organics locally cultivated mushrooms from Bridgehampton
