Last week at the market we saw our first sweet corn of the season at Biltz Greenhouses’ stand. This week two more vendors say they’re bringing sweet corn too (VanAntwerp’s Farm Market and Wilson Farm). VanAntwerp’s also says they have some cantaloupe ready, along with eggplant and ground cherries. What are ground cherries? They’re a small orange fruit covered in papery husk, and similar in size and shape to a cherry tomato. The flavor is a pleasant, unique tomato/pineapple like blend.
This week a few food trucks come back to the market for the first time this season, including Chef Dan’s Southern Comfort which recently opened their restaurant at 5539 E. Washington Street in historic Irvington. Now they’re settled in and back on the food truck too!
Also, we’ve never had a battle of the chicken salads, but The Twisted Sicilian and Caveman Truck are both featuring their take on the lunch staple. Take your pick between the Sicilian Chicken Salad from Twisted Sicilian or Caveman’s Chicken Salad Lettuce Cups.
