Holy Crepe! We made it into the Greenfield Farmer’s Market!

July 19, 2008

After a fall of dreaming, a winter of planning, and a spring full of sweat and a few tears, Two Tarts has finally opened its stand at the Greenfield Farmer’s Market.  We sold out an hour early on our first day- thank you Greenfieldians and others- and had a terrific time to boot.

Each week, we plan to feature fresh, seasonal ingredients from local farms and will post pictures and a recipe for you to try at home.  This week we were able to grab some of the last fat, juicy strawberries from Nourse Farms in Whately, MA. They were sweet enough to stand on their own but also shared some crepe real estate with bananas, cocoa hazelnut spread, and occasionally (naughty strawberries) with both.

Here are a couple of pictures from our first day (you can see others including some of the delicious things we got in exchange for crepes by clicking on the flickr pictures on the right side of the page):

Recipe for Herb Goat Cheese Crepe Filling:

16 oz. goat cheese (preferably local)
4 Tbs chopped herbs (chives, parsley, basil, anything you have on hand)
3 garlic cloves
2 Tbs scallions
3/4 Tbs flavored vinegar
1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Chop all ingredients (minus cheese) in a food processor for about 15 seconds. Beat cheese and herb mixture with an electric mixer until incorporated. This should last about a week in the refrigerator.
(Adapted from Cafe Beaujolais cookbook) Spread in a crepe and enjoy!

See you next week!
