Coastside Farmers’ Market in Pacifica is open today
The Coastisde Farmers’ Market is open today from 2:30 to 6 PM in Rockaway Beach. So - C’mon down to round out your Thanksgiving Day offerings, pile in a few supplies for visiting friends and family, chose a little something to bring to your host if you are not cooking, or pick up something quick to manage the teaming hordes tonight.
Me, I am picking up a peck of sweet potatoes that I intend to peel, cut into big thick wheels, pile into a deep baking dish, splash then with lemons juice and then cover with a whole pan of sliced onions that have been sauteed ( not caramelized - that makes ‘em too sweet) with fresh ground cumin. Bake the whole magical for about 40 minutes and defy forever the tradition of hyper-sweet goo-coated stupor-inducing yams.
We are grateful as all get-out for the support of you our Marketeers, and to our sponsors and the Friends of the Farmers’ Market for another great season. Especially this year when the weather-makers have been so, well, let’s call it challenging. This has been a tough one for these neighbors and friends of ours who grow our food, these ones who risk everything every day - including their own health and security - so we can all eat better and live more healthy and cohesive lives. I’ll be raising a glass to them all tomorrow and recommend you do the same. It will feel great, I guarantee.
The season is winding down it’s true, but we will be open today, and this Saturday in Half Moon Bay and every week through and including Saturday, December 18th.
