If you didn’t know, I am tickled to blog for Fig Lancaster, a clever and trendy lifestyle publication and online resource. Moxie House Media, Fig’s momma, covers all things stylish and savory in West Chester, Media, Doyelstown and Lancaster.
My blog, is focused on the Lancaster Central Market, where I head to shop and day dream. My eyes get big and my focus is so easily distracted from booth to booth… oh, look it’s Vietnamese rice balls and man, gotta try those valentine’s sand tarts… wait…maybe I need a coffee first? Tea? You said there is a new tea vendor? Let me find her first…wait, donuts…I can smell dooonuutttss….
In 2013 I will be biting off a new challenge, to blog my way through the Fresh from Central Market’s Cookbook. My visit today was to pick up the new copy. My book-loving mother-in-law gifted me a copy of the original market cookbook. New & old.
Just wanted to share a few pictures from today’s visit. There are always so many pictures, conversations, recipes swapped and bags crammed full of goodies…this was a snippet of today.
sweet guava. I’ve never seen it, have you? Find at Market Street Produce. Mr.Peguero, stand-holder, instructed me to slice and eat them as is… ok, I’ll try that with breakfast tomorrow morning.
Mr.Peguero, of Market Street Produce, shared a few of his favorite root vegetables and cooking tips with us. This yautia lila, in a 3D like photo, is best enjoyed cooked like a potato. He said they are sweet but not as sweet as a sweet potato. Just said sweet 3 times. yup.
Love the Miesse candy stand. May have bought a box of assorted salted caramels. I have no photo evidence…or do I?
Many of the vendors sell their own home grown produce. This is what happens during that transitional period of ice and snow, the produce becomes canned. Love that sustainability. That’s Ben of Sweet Annie Produce. He finds much pleasure in root cooking’ creativity & canning. He needs a “eat more roots” t-shirt.
bought one. have not tried, yet. will letcha know what i think.
and this, my dears, made my day. Rose Rohrer told me that this rose’s name is “free spirit.” It’s scent is divine and the color can’t be enhanced or manipulated, in this photo, to really reflect it’s beauty. I picked this gorgeous rose and invited 2 of her friends to come home with me and now they happily sit in my kitchen window waiting for the morning birds.
I encourage you to visit the market and find some lovelies to take home with you. There is a new Pureblend Tea company was out last stop and we discovered many things to share but you will need to find me on Fig Lancaster, at Phoebe Savors Lancaster Central Market, Fig Style, to read more… much blog love … xoxo phoebe
