I made these delicious cauliflower fritters with a cumin yogurt sauce for a holiday party last year, and they were gone within minutes. With such beautiful cauliflower available at Blue House Farm, I knew that I had to share this recipe with you. A big thank you to Deb at Smitten Kitchen for creating such an amazing recipe that I’ve modified slightly for this post. Read more
Meet Emily and Hazel, our featured People of MCM!
Where do you live? Liberty Hill
How often do you come to the MCM? Once a month
What’s your favorite part of the market? The location, and supporting farmers by shopping here.
What’s the best kept secret at MCM? It’s existence, more people should check it out! Keep up the good work!
This Thursday March 14th we have an amazing market planned for you! Not only are we welcoming some new vendors, we’re also welcoming back some of your favorite returning vendors who are just getting started this season!
Our newest vendor is Zuckerman’s Farm, selling several varieties of potatoes from fingerlings to yukon golds, as well as small and large varieties of asparagus. These potatoes will be the perfect addition to your corned beef and cabbage this St. Patty’s Day!
After much anticipation, we’re thrilled to announce that Onigilly will make their return to MCM this Thursday! They’ll be back on a bi-weekly schedule so you can catch them at MCM on the 14th and the 28th this month. We’re so glad that we’ll have their tasty Japanese rice wraps back on Bartlett Street! Not to be outdone, Shrimp and Love Ceviche will also be back with their signature styles of ceviche, ranging from spicy to subtly sweet and everything in between! Our pals at 4505 Meats will have St. Patty’s Day specials and they’ll be smoking meats on site!
In case all that doesn’t entice you, we’ve also got music from Heather Normandale at 4:30 pm and Mountain Dojo with Toshio Hirano and Dave Berry at 6:00 pm. Heather plays eclectic folk music that combines cello, marimba, bells and trumpet, along with rhythm-driven picking on banjo, steel mandolin, and guitar.
Mountain Dojo is a bluegrass duo known to entertain with their energetic and soulful shows. They incorporate a mix of classic country and bluesy songs from the golden era of 1920-1949 featuring guitar, mandolin, and vocal harmonies.
Come on down this Thursday 4-8pm for an awesome night!
We’re excited to bring a new feature to our blog this week! MCM staff will be highlighting a person of MCM every week–it might be a shopper at the market, a volunteer, or even a vendor! We want our whole community to know about the awesome people that make MCM what it is. Who knows–we might snag you while you’re shopping and make you famous on our blog!
This week, meet Amberle, and Luke (who visited Amberle, and us, all the way from the Marina!)
Where do you live? 23rd and Valencia
How often do you come to the MCM? I just moved to the neighborhood, so I’m trying to come to the market as much as possible. I want to get all my produce here because I’m not able to go to other farmer’s markets.
What’s your favorite part of the market? Eating Peter’s Kettle Corn!
What’s the best kept secret at MCM? The market itself!
How crazy are these Lion’s Mane mushrooms? Ever since I spotted them last week at Far West Fungi, I’ve been curious about them. I grew more intrigued as I learned that when cooked, they have a texture similar to crab meat (!), and that many people eat them to help regenerate their nerve endings. With all of this wild trivia swirling through my head, I was excited to try a recipe that used only a couple of ingredients, and that would allow the unique flavor of these mushrooms to come through… you’ll just need some butter, carrots, onions, parsley, and of course, Lion’s Mane mushrooms!
