farmers' market booty

The new location for the Ferry Plaza Farmer's Market is divine. I had SUCH a lovely time this morning - it's much roomier than the old locale, and while not everyone is quite moved in yet, it's already wonderful. I worry about the wisdom of having a Sur La Table in the same building, but i'm sure i'll manage. ;)

My take for today:

--Spring morels & shiitaake mushrooms (the morels look SO GOOD. I plan to serve them to myself tonight sautéed in butter with artichokes and scallops. A "russell isn't eating with me tonight" dinner at its finest...)
--fava beans
--artichokes
--green garlic
--basil (green AND purple)
--some jams and chutneys for my mom-in-law
--asparagus
--S.F. Drake & Mt. Tam cheeses from Cowgirl Creamery
--strawberries (to go with the champagne tomorrow, gotta have 'em!)

Tasty.
