Farmers Market Finds

6:14 PM

Hi loves! Happy Tuesday! I wanted to share with you all a personal update along with some goodies I've found at The Hoboken Farmers Market and what I plan on doing with them.

Personal update: I'm settling into my new apartment in Hoboken! I have two rockstar roomies, and so far, I'm loving it. The apartment is gorgeous. The building was built in the 1920's. The outside of the building is whitewash brick with gorgeous ivy growing up the front. The inside has an exposed brick wall and wood floors everywhere.

This is my last week before I start my new job, so I'm taking the time to explore, discover, and acclimate myself to my new digs!

I totally lucked out when I went to Google and searched "hoboken farmers markets" and stumbled upon one happening today! I grabbed my fav resuable bag and headed two blocks (yes, it's THAT close) over to the market. It was small but had exactly what anyone could possibly need. Flowers, baguettes, mozzarella, fruits, veggies, pickles, pies, etc.

Here's what I've picked up and what I plan on doing with them:

  1. Haricots verts: I plan on making a side dish with these lovlies to accompany a roasted lemon and rosemary chicken (I'm thinking tonight)! I'll cook them in a skillet with olive oil, chopped garlic, and once they're done cooking, squeeze some lemon over top. 
  2. Tomatillos: I'm going to throw these bad boys in the oven and roast them with some onion, hot chili peppers, and garlic to make a roasted salsa verde for this weekend!
  3. Orange and green chili peppers: will be roasted with the tomatillos for the roasted salsa verde!
  4. Golden Beets: I plan to wrap these gorgeous golden beets in tin foil and roasting them until they are tender to the fork. Next, I'll make a red wine vinaigrette and pour over the chopped beets. Finally, I'll sprinkle over some toasted walnuts and goat cheese for a delicious beet salad. 
  5. Corn: These gorgeous ears of corn will be grilled over a skillet grill (we don't have an outside grill) until they're charred on each side. They will accompany some bun-less burgers cooked over the same skillet grill or should we make grillet a thing?
  6. Peaches: I'd love to grillet these peaches and serve them just as is. They could also be topped with a homemade baked streusel, whipped cream, or vanilla ice cream. Another treat would be a peach crumble (my mouth is watering) or simply enjoyed bite by bite! 
  7. Wildflower and sunflower bouquet: They're just gorgeous to look at and make me happy! Also, why not buy yourself some flowers?!
What are you cooking or baking these week? I'd love to know!
