Local Love

Last night’s dinner was delicious! It was inspired by yesterday’s post-work trip to the Wickenden farmers’ market.

First, we started with a caprese salad made with a striped German tomato from White Barn Farm, mozzarella from Narragansett Creamery (also from the market, sold by Wishing Stone Farm) and basil from our garden plot. The tomato was giant and so sweet. I thought we’d have leftovers, but it was impossible to leave any.

Then, Jeremy grilled a chicken breast stuffed with arugula from the garden, spicy dried sausage and hot pepper cheese, both from Tony’s Colonial on Atwells. Meanwhile, I sauteed beet greens, also from White Barn Farm, with some garlic and hot pepper flakes.

What a feast! And what a great city we live in.

  1. That dinner sounds (and looks) fantastic. I saw that giant tomato earlier in the afternoon, and almost bought it!

  2. Why have I not heard about the Wickenden Farmer’s Market?? My girlfriend works in the jewelry district and it would take 2 minutes to get there! Dinner sounds great! We went to the Scituate Farmer’s Market this morning. If you haven’t been, I suggest it!
