SCOOP: FARMER’S MARKET VENDORS

Sometimes this gig makes me feel like a real journalist. Nicole Reed, our McGolrick Park Farmers Market hero, sent me an email that started out with, “K, you’re our VERY FIRST member of the press to get this info!” (I don’t think people in the press use quite so many exclamation points)
Well, It’s happening! Next weekend, take a stroll to McGolrick Park on Sunday, June 3rd for the very first Farmer’s Market which will be on Russell St. There are pies! If you’re closer to Cooper Park, there will be a Farmers Market there, too. I don’t know about you but I am going to double fist.

Recipe: Daikon Cheddar Sandwich

I think I learned this sandwich from a German person. It seems like something German people would eat. Maybe it’s the pumpernickel bread. Either way it is the most delicious (and vegetarian) sandwich ever!
The first time I had it, it was with your standard grade european radish, but here I used daikon slices, which I find every week at the Greenmarket.

Simply butter pumpernickel bread, top it with cheddar cheese and any type of radish. It’s fresh, crunchy, buttery & cheesy. (Note: the fresh oregano is just a green garnish to pretty up the otherwise uncolorful photograph, but it might be delicious on there, too!)

If you have any great recipes to share, please send them to greenpointers (at) gmail.com. The goal is to make a Greenpointers Community Cookbook, the spiral bound kind your Mom has, but with illustrations from local artists.
