This Week in Veggies – What’s Fresh at Your Local Farmers Market

This is the third year we’ve been a part of the Westfield CSA (community supported agriculture) group.  Since our farmer also delivers to a few local farmers markets, we think his shares are pretty representative of what other organic farmers will be bringing to their markets this week.

This week we got red romaine lettuce, cucumbers, summer squash, red potatoes, a pepper, an onion, cauliflower and daikon radish.

Overnight Chinese Daikon Radish Pickles


1 1/2 cups chopped daikon

3/4 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon rice vinegar

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

1/4 teaspoon sesame oil (optional)


In a mixing bowl, toss daikon with salt. Cover, and refrigerate until 1 to 2 tablespoons of water is released, about 30 minutes.

Drain and rinse daikon, removing as much salt as possible. Pat dry with a paper towel, and return to bowl. Stir in rice vinegar, black pepper and, if desired, sesame oil. Cover, and refrigerate at least 8 hours.
