A Trip to a Winter Farmer’s Market

My favorite farmer’s market takes place on Tuesday and Friday mornings down in Zürich. I don’t get the chance to go very often because I’m usually working. I went for the first time last summer and fell in love with it. I was off all last week, so of course, I planned a trip to the market.

An endless variety of leafy things

As usual, they had beautiful vegetables.

I was thrilled to find not one, but two varieties of kale. I came away with some dinosaur kale and some regular curly kale.

They only have meat on Friday so that’s when I scheduled my shopping. I wanted to try out some new things and knew I’d be able get them there. We eat a lot of pork and beef, but I wanted to experiment with some wild game meat.

I came away with wild boar entrecote, rabbit legs, chicken livers and venison fillet. I am determined to find a way to like liver! I’ll be sharing recipes soon for venison in a delicious rich sauce and rabbit stew. The farmer at the stand was really helpful and gave me tips on how to cook my wild boar and venison.

Interesting game meats

Here’s a look at my haul from the market.

What I bought

Here’s a look at my gorgeous game meat. The total cost for the meat was 96 Swiss francs (about 100 US dollars).

Now I just have to figure out how to cook it all!
