I have only been to the Memphis Farmers Market once this year but I'm going to start making up for lost time. Last week when I posted about the labneh sandwich I did not mention the other two items I bought at the Mediterranean Grocery, dried fava beans and dried giant lima beans. I never cook dried beans so I've been spending quite a bit of time soaking, blanching, shelling and simmering and still have yet to get it right. On top of that my neighbor runs a farmers market in Arkansas and their child has been regulary selling me a dozen fresh eggs. Frittatas, quiches, and deviled eggs have been the result of those purchases. So you can see why I've been too distracted to make it to the farmers market though this past Saturday I ran past. I waited until 10 a.m. to run, so as I ran past the market with hot sweat pouring down my brow and stinging my eyes, it appeared that the market has grown even larger this year with vendors set up deep into the parking lot.
