Guest Blogger: kohlrabi and quince – Farmer’s Market

14 Jun

Kohlrabi and Quince are two items that most people don’t know what to do with. Meet Kelly, a vegan blogger who tackles these two foods head on in her blog named after the two. Here she is in her own words, “I’m Kelly. I’ve been vegan since 2009. I love food, and I love growing my own food. I blog at kohlrabi and quince. I also tweet, and have my own facebook page.” Please welcome Kelly!
This Friday was the second week for the Old Town Clovis Farmers’ Market. Personally, it’s my favourite market. I don’t know if it’s the live music, the Old Town vibe, the variety of post-shopping (or pre-shopping) bars, the time of day, or the variety of vendors, but, it’s the one I most often frequent.

For those out of the loop, the Old Town Clovis Farmers’ Market runs Fridays 5:30 – 9:00pm May through September, on Pollasky. In my opinion, best parking is the lot behind Kimmie’s bar on Clovis and 3rd/Tollhouse.

Not only is there a wonderful variety of fresh produce, but, there are two blocks of vendors selling everything from grilled corn, to sandwiches, to funnel cakes, to tamales.

It’s one of the events I look forward to on a weekly basis. Tonight, for only $17.50, I got amaranth, 2 kohlrabi bulbs with greens, yam leaves, curry hummus, blueberries, squash blossoms, and dinner of a tamale with beans and rice. Awesome! And, it’ll feed me for at least a week. I’ve never had yam leaves, but, the girl at the booth told me they’re awesome stir fried with some butter. I can’t wait!
