I went to the Farmer’s Market down in Zürich today and, as usual, I came away with more vegetables than I can probably eat. Everything looked so fresh and beautiful that I just couldn’t help myself.
I got some gorgeous and crisp looking rhubarb, along with some strawberries. Things in Switzerland are typically only available seasonally so I take full advantage of that and buy it while I can. Maybe I’ll make another Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble or a pie or some jam or maybe I’ll even make something non-desserty with it.
I couldn’t leave without getting some beets. I absolutely love beets. I haven’t made beet chips with the dehydrator in awhile or I could just roast them or use them in a salad.
I picked up two kinds of carrots; regular orange ones and purple ones. I can’t wait to cut into those!
I was happy to find bok choy since I don’t always find it at my supermarket.
Spinach!!! A huge bag of fresh spinach (which will sadly cook down to next to nothing).
After wandering around the Farmer’s Market and stopping off for a coffee in a cozy cafe, we headed over to the Viaduct. The Viaduct is a trendy shopping area under some train tracks. Have a look…
They sell a lot of organic products and there are several small vendors selling things like specialty oils, balsamic vinegar and wines. There is a butchers shop and a fish shop as well as a few little bakeries.
We came across this interesting product and, of course, we had to get it. It’s pure organic cocoa butter (in kind of a powdered form) that can be used in cooking. I’ll write a post about it once I’ve used it.
We got some pork belly and some sugar free, nitrate free organic sausage.
It wouldn’t be a shopping trip unless we found some chocolate 🙂
I also picked up some organic (bio) butter made from raw milk from grass fed cows.
This is the brand of tea we use for our home brewed kombucha. The tea is organic and the bags are unbleached.
The Viaduct has a nice little restaurant which is very popular for brunch on the weekend. We had one more coffee before heading for home with all of our goodies.
