I officially started my farmers market season this past weekend. Tho this is a late start for me, I usual buy my plants for the garden from the farmers market. My goal this summer is to expand my farmers market horizons and try out some new locations. I started with the Fulton Farmers Market at 4901 Chowen Ave South it’s open every saturday till 1pm.
My friends wood burning pizza oven, is what got me over to the market and I’m glad I did. “Big River Pizza is a hand-craft artisan Neapolitan-style pizzas using local, fresh, regional and organic ingredients wherever possible.” Steve Lott is from chicago so he has a pretty good pizza heritage. He uses a lot of his ingredients sourced from the fellow vendors at the Fulton Farmers Market, so it’s local and organic. The tomato sauce is handmade from organic tomatoes. The chewy hand tossed crust, well one bite will tell it all.
breakfast menu-Lil Red Rooster. It had bacon and egg on the pizza which came from the Sunshine Harvest Farm vendor at the Fulton Farmers Market. It was fantastic, fresh tasting ingredients and awesome crust. With the sunny side up egg just how I like it. I think this might become a regular saturday stop.
The Fulton Farmers Market is a nice quaint size with that home town neighborhood vibe. Lots of great food, bakery, produce, delicious coffee and flowers to shop.
I wanted to leave with this cool sign – When will the vegetable be here?
