The Ellicott City Farmers Market.
Just a simple salad. Baugher’s strawberries. Breezy Willow arugula. Shepherd’s Manor Ewe Cream Cheese. What you can do after a quick walk up Main St. on a Saturday morning.
What would you pay for a salad of this freshness at a restaurant? Not the small amount necessary to make this one.
We bought a quart of strawberries (OK, two quarts). They were $5 a quart if you bought two. The cheese.
$7.50 at the market. Sheep’s milk cheese. To. die. for.
Arugula. $2 for 1/4 pound. We bought half a pound because I love it.
Breezy Willow’s organic veggies are awesome, to say the least.
We added a simple cream dressing. This was Newman’s creamy Caesar.
You could make at least six salads with what we bought. $16.50 total in cost. We are greatly enjoying the bounty from the market.
As for dinner that night.
I grilled those Lancaster Farm Fresh wings and served them with that rhubarb sauce.
And the wine. From the Wine Bin.
How great to have wine right next to the market. The better to complete your meal choices.
I could get used to finding Saturday dinners at this market.
