Arg, forgot to get definite answer about cherries this afternoon. I'll check with my usual source of when things will appear at market this evening.

New Morning Farm's market at the Sheridan School (36th & Alton) had their first Tuesday market of the summer today biggrin.gif They had the regular suspects, beautiful sweet peas, asparagus, lettuce, strawberries. The exciting find du jour was heirloom tomatoes! The also had regular hot house ones but as far as I am concerned between the strawberries and heirlooms summer has arrived.

Fresh strawberries on a Tuesday may just get me through this week.

Does anyone else shop at New Morning's market at the Sheridan School on Tuesdays and Sundays? Will you send me a PM if you do?

I picked up three types of cucumbers: lemon, asian and diva. There are only a few more weeks for berries so I grabbed some blue, red and blacks. At Dupont this morning I found the coolest purple conjoined twin pepper. That's going to be snack for my students on Monday.

Emma and I visited New Morning (36th & Alton) today. Our haul: peaches, Brandywine field tomatoes, blackberries, corn, lettuce, sungold cherry tomatoes, chives, tarragon. basil, little sweet plums, and a bag of very fresh okra. We scarfed plums on the way home.

Ian has eaten most of the pint of sungolds.

You must be talking about New Morning Farm, which is at the Sheridan School at 36th St. and Alton Place NW on Saturday mornings and Tuesday evenings. They're also at the market at Dupont Circle on Sundays. They seem to bring more stuff to the Sheridan School location than Dupont. 36th and Alton is just a block from Reno Road, and Alton comes just before Albemarle as you go out Reno. They have many wonderful things.

The Hersch is right, it's New Morning Farm at 36th and Alton. If you know where the drive through Burger King is, it's right behind it. Saturday they are there from 8-1:30 and Tuesday they are there from 4-8.

They consider Saturday their main market with at least twice as much produce (by volume) than Tuesday. Saturdays they also have baked good, fresh eggs, excellent olive oil, homemade jams and syrups and locally produced goat cheese.

Tuesdays they concentrate on produce but do bring in eggs and fresh flowers. Their market on Sunday (across from the flower vendor) is the smallest but they are one of the few totally organic stands at Dupont (except the baked goods and eggs).

One other note they are part of Toscoroga (I may have spelled that wrong) which supplies their produce to local restaurants such as Palena, Eve, Corduroy, Circle Bistro, just to name a few dr.com favorites.

I stopped by New Morning Farm at 36th and Alton on Tuesday for the first time this season. They are going strong with the last week of strawberries (already?!?) and asparagus plus basil, purple scallions and English peas. They already had hothouse tomatoes and still had lots of cherries.

Answering my own questions. [Dateline: Hurlock, Md]

This related article was in the Post on Wednesday: Farm damage. There were a few references to farms in the front-page story on rain the same day. This mentions the barns destroyed by tornados, I think.

Thanks to hillvalley's recommendation of flowering squash sold by New Morning, I emailed the Crawfords. Jim wrote back to say their farm lucked out, getting much less rain than places east of them, includiing D.C.

(FYI: They did not have the blossoming squash this week, though. Maybe the following.)

tomatoes, alas, have come to an early, and fairly abrupt ending this season, but the golden cherry tomatoes still hanging on at new morning farm at the dupont market yesterday morning outshined every tomato on the lot. my wife snacks on them throughout the day, so we barely have enough to string a bracelet. but last week, when i had three containers worth, i threw them into a hot pan with some water, maybe a cup, put the lid on and cooked them until they burst and fell apart. then added some more water, some salt, turned the heat down, and simmered them, covered again, for maybe 20 minutes, and put them through a food mill. (look up deborah madison.) add some olive oil, maybe pepper. if it's too sweet for you, you can fix it with some sturdy vinegar, minced pepper, whatever you like. i borrowed a few small bud-sized purple peppers from an ornamental spray from the florist. they were four-alarm, so i used them sparingly but still wished i hadn't. anyway, this is a great tomato soup.

Please note that New Morning (a favorite) will be coming to Dupont Circle for the very last time tomorrow, November 18.

New Morning's market on Saturday at 36th. Street and Alton Place is open all year round. They have everything you see on Sunday at Dupont plus a wider variety of veggies, baked goods, and cheese. Also, they carry vegetable from TOG who supply many restaurants in the area such as Palena, Cafe St. Ex, and Agraria.

They are only closed the Saturday after Thanksgiving (next weekend) and again during the holiday season. Otherwise they are open rain, shine, or snow. In fact, if you go on a Saturday during the winter when it is snowing you'll get a coupon for 6 free ears of corn in the summer.

It may be that as a group, the Tuscarora Organic Growers don't have enough to bring to the Sheridan market until June.

However, I can't wait to get my rhubarb at New Morning!

Is TOG going to have their own stand? I thought that the produce at the NMF stand at Dupont is mostly from the farm and the Saturday market at the Sheridan School sold more TOG produce.

No. My post (just above yours) is in response to Legant's lament (right above mine). She expressed anger that the Sheridan School Market is not going to be open until June. I proposed an explanation as to why that might be the case. However, since this topic is about New Morning Farm rather than the market they run at Sheridan, I made sure folk know that New Morning is coming to town tomorrow all by itself.

Farms at Dupont are only permitted to sell what they grow which is why New Morning sells a smaller variety of items at Dupont than they do at Sheridan. (Same w Twin Springs which sells some of its neighbors' stuff at the small market at All Soul's Church in Woodley Park on Saturdays, but only its own fare at Dupont.)

Ah-got it.

NMF was there in all of its glory this morning. They had a nice variety of herbs including basil!!!!!, oregano, and sage. Better yet, the had RAMPS!!!! I think this is the first time they have carried them. They looked nicer than the ones that Spring Valley was selling. According to Moie they will have ramps next week as well.

Also among the produce were leeks, green garlic, a variety of greens, pies, and ruhbarb.

And they had excellent strawberries. I picked up a pint and continued to shop. Then I tasted a berry and picked up two more pints. One was gone before I hit the Jersey pike on my way to NY. Also picked up asparagus, sugar snap peas, garlic scapes, and a granola bar.

They also had hot-house tomatoes, and I regret that I bought only three. I ate one for lunch, and I have to say it was without question the best out-of-season tomato I've eaten in my entire life, bursting with juice and flavor.

At Sheridan School ... the local pilagers do not wait for the 4:30 bell before they start plundering.
I am wondering how many English peas I need, when a woman elbows me out of the way,
and shovels a vast amount into a paper bag ... I got some, but not nearly enough, Also, some
beautiful lettuce. The pea tendrils and garlic scapes were enticing, but, what to do with them?

Next time I will be better prepared.

My two favorite ways to prepare pea tendrils are a) in a salad with lemon juice, evoo, thinly sliced mushrooms and some shaved parm and :lol: sauteed in a little butter. Garlic scapes are great sauteed in anything you would use garlic in. I've used it in salsa, roasted on the grill, in eggs, and on top of crab cakes.

A pint of sungolds, a quart of mini roma tomatoes, two green zebras, a pint of blackberries, and a quart of donut peaches. Basil, serrano, and cilantro. This was supposed to last until Penn market on Thursday. I've already eaten all of the mini roma and cherry tomatoes, the blackberries, and some of the herbs. (And the peaches are only still around because they aren't ripe yet. I ate two to be sure.)

The New Morning Farms donut peaches are amazing! We are serving them with prosciutto. Their blackberries are full of flavor but a little on the tart side which I love. I'd rather have the full flavor and give up a litle sugar in copmparison to the commercial varities which can be super sweet yet flavorless.

I love the granola they sell at the market. The mix includes cashews, coconut and raisins. It's more tender/less crunchy than most granola. The granola bars they make with corn syrup and peanut butter are even better, but a little pricey at $1 each.

I swung through the New Morning Farm around 11am Saturday, they were doing a nice amount of business but still had plenty of produce to go around. I love this place!

Picked up strawberries, tomatoes, asparagus, red leaf lettuce, spinach, spring onion, baby bok choy, squash blossoms, and some sticky buns!

Saturday mornings in Van Ness just got a whole lot more fun!

Last of the strawberries for the year were enough to make me miss them already. String beans are a month early and great for roasting-will be perfect raw in a few weeks. Sugar peas were as sweet, as, well, you know....

If they've been getting as much rain up there as we've been down here it shouldn't be a big surprise.

Last week I asked a farmer from Maryland where her strawberries were.

"They don't swim so good," was her reply.

* * *
Scapes: Use as you would garlic, including finely minced or sliced in salads. Make a pesto.

As for the rain: good news is that local peaches are thriving.

But start doing your anti-rain dance. "Blade Runner" was set in L.A., right?

Scapes: Use as you would garlic, including finely minced or sliced in salads. Make a pesto.

hmmm, I minced half a scape into a homemade salsa...they have an overpowering flavor and a surprising amount of heat, basically ruined the salsa.

Musta been a fiery batch, the ones that came with my farm share last week were a wisp of a hint of raw garlic. I used three of them in a "Scape Goat" concoction (a goat curry). Yes, the rest of the curry ingredients overpowered the scapes but I really wanted to have Scape Goat in the pun collection of my cooking repertoire. Next time, I'll aim for local goat cheese with scapes, maintaining the theme from a different angle.

Sorry to hear that your salsa bottomed out. Great lesson learned, though, to always taste-as-you-go when incorporating new ingredients into a recipe. I've been burned before (literally and figuratively) when I skipped that step.

Favas!!! For $3.20 a pound. Pretty good for organically grown.
Squash blossoms-I hit three markets today and these were the best I saw. Plus, because they are organic you don't have to worry about washing them, just check the insides for visitors.
Lots of tomatoes, including small yellow ones and a few variety of heirlooms. No cherry's though. Hopefully they will be at Dupont tomorrow.
Yellow and red plums
Variety of different peas
Plus all the usuals-variety of mushrooms, herbs, lettuces, cukes, squash, greens, beets, etc.

Chocolate purple cherry tomatoes!

I picked some of these up over the weekend and they were fantastic. Funny how the container didn't last nearly as long as I would expected.

Green zebras have also been available for the past week or two. I've been buying golden beets like crazy every week as well. I will have to pick up some of the cherry tomatoes this weekend and given them a try.

New Morning is up and running Saturday mornings and Tuesday afternoons. Today might have been the last chance for asparagus but they had beautiful cherries, strawberries, tomatoes, squash, tons of lettuce, sweet and English peas, and their usual array of herbs.

Does this farmer's market have a web site? This is the only info I can find. Can someone post the hours for me? Thanks in advance!
