    Every party I like having a good assortment of veg available....if it's a buffet I usually go for grilled veg platter with balsalmic dressing.....
    Fennel, zucchini, red onion, artichokes, eggplants, red,yellow peppers....
    Raw is ok in the summer, I prefer grilled does anyone do a roasted variety in the winter or have other variations that work well? sauces....aoili, buttermilk, others????

    I do a lot of blanched, salad nicoise kind of things during the winter. Boiled potoatoes always go well-

    Dips beyond the normal- roasted red pepper; white bean and basil puree, feta spread thinned out goes well.

    I'd love the resource for red skinned cheese...
    I made duck sausages with wilted greens and garlic with a white bean puree......ITS FALL

    These greens stand up to a spicy sausage....Boy it's fun playing with all the interesting produce coming throught the market.

    Shroomgirl, do you ship out orders from your farmers market?

    This market started Sept 23 of this year....it was set up as a "let's see if it works" It is amazingly successful. So the answer is no, but I can connect you to certain farmers that may consider shipping...big leap for some of these country boys. check out saucecafe.com under Chef's collaborative to see pics of the market....(it's my baby)
