Vendor of the Month: Chai's Kitchen
If you're a market regular, you're probably familiar with the Singaporean delights of Chai's Kitchen! Chai's Kitchen offers up Singaporean flavors in their jams, curry blends, pickles, and prepared foods. We love the curry blends because each packet comes with instructions to make and enjoy your own curry. Simply pick up some veggies from us at the market and pair it with your favorite protein for an easy and delicious meal! Make sure to stop by Chai's Kitchen at the market on Saturday to check out her selection.
Veggie of the Month: Okra
Okra is back in season for the summer! The pods of this heat-loving crop can be eaten raw when young and tender but they are best when cooked. Okra can be roasted, fried, stewed, sauteed, grilled, or pickled. Here are a few okra recipes to lend some culinary inspiration:
