Greens, reds & gossip at the market

You had to look for them, but tasty treats, including this asparagus and field grown red lettuce, could be found at today's farmers' market in Monument Square . I also saw more lettuce varieties, rhubarb and chives for sale among the seedlings and flowers. I didn't see any fiddleheads, but they were available inside the Public Market House.

While I was shopping, I ran into Dan Sripasert, one of the owners of the Green Elephant, and he told me the restaurant is now doing a Sunday brunch from 10:30 am-1:30 pm. It features Thai style dishes, including a tofu scramble. I'll have to check it out.

One of the best salads I ever had was at a restaurant in Boulder, CO that had come from the local farmer's market that day. It was butter lettuce with a vinegar dressing and fresh cracked pepper. Delicious!
