This isn’t a post per se, but more of a redirect. I wrote a piece about Lehigh Valley beers for Good.Food.Stories, and managed to give a shout out to a mess of restaurants and brewpubs and breweries in the region.

Fresh Finds Market Tour: Summer Salads

If you missed last night’s tour of the Easton Farmers’ Market, wherein I talked about ways in which you could easily make salads from your findings at the market, too bad! But guess what? Here’s the shopping list. I imagine this would work, in some cases, for the Saturday market too, but some of these items are vendor-specific. You may have seen my previous post, a recipe for Panzanella, which we highlighted as one of the go-to salads for the dog days of summer.

I’m aiming to try to get these shopping lists up afterward. Here’s last night’s. Please pardon me for not hyperlinking every one of these vendors who has a website; you can learn more about them at the EFM site, for starters.


Panzanella (Italian Bread Salad)

  • Heirloom tomatoes, cucumber, red onion/candy onion, cubed bread
  • Mozzarella is optional and not traditional

Sweet and Spicy Kale Salad

  • Grilled chicken, kale, roasted beets, shredded carrots, sliced radishes. Top with trail mix, orange-ginger vinaigrette (orange juice, minced ginger, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil)
