ThIs Week's Farmers Market

Another beautiful Saturday for the Farmers Market. We picked up two unusual vegetables this week.

A Philadlphia White Box radish. An heirloom radish, introduce in 1880's with a mild and creamy. These radishes were forced in cold frames in the late 1800's.

Cue or Eight Ball Zucchini. This squash reminds me more of a patty pan with it's hard skin. My initial thoughts were to slice the cue ball and fry or grill it. In searching for recipes, I find the way it is served most often is stuffed.

What unusual vegetables are available at your local farmer's market?
