Back in San Francisco, one of my most favorite things to do as a family was to bike over to the Ferry Building Farmer’s Market and fill up our bike baskets with bread, cheese and fresh produce.
So, when I found out that a mini- farmer’s market was held on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays at 75 Loewen Road , J and I made a date to check it out.
We arrived pretty early , everyone was still setting up. We walked around in our Havaianas, scoping out the products, sipping our coffee.
Our first stop- the Pesto Guy ( I’m addicted to his Pesto!) and splurged on a bottle.
While I didn’t see any actual farmers there, I did score a butternut squash and four purple carrots ( First time I ever saw such a thing!) – flown in that morning from Australia.
Back at the homestead, I julienned the purple carrots and served it with the Pesto for J and the Mini to munch on while I whipped up a butternut squash soup.
Butternut Squash is tricky to cut and peel, as you know, but making a soup out of it is super easy! I like to add a touch of cumin, chilli flakes and a pinch of nutmeg to mine.
I served the soup with the olive bread I baked the day before and some goat’s cheese…. Easy and Delish!!!
Not a bad way to spend a Saturday, right?
