What’s fresh this week – March 1st

Cold weather, hot food

Are you just a teeny tiny bit tired of all this cold weather? Are you bored with your meals and are looking for a little pizzazz? Do you want to skip cooking this Sunday night and just re-group? Well, Schenectady Greenmarket and our prepared food vendors are here to help.

Stop by Café Nola, Euro Delicacies, La Empanada Llama or Taj Mahal (all located conveniently downstairs this week) and fill up. Our vendors offer great dishes that can either be eaten right at the market or brought home and re-heated. Want to be earth-friendly? Bring your own Tupperware containers to the market and have our vendors fill them up rather than using their take-away packaging.

This week’s featured vendor: Migliorelli Farm

Simple and sweet

Let’s face it – we are all a little sick of winter. The snow has piled up so high outside we’ve lost all sight of our gardens and have pretty much forgotten what even grass looks like. Feeling a little down? A little bored? The market is here to help you perk up your taste buds and hopefully your spirit as well. Here is a simple, delicious recipe for sweet potatoes. It may not be 80 degree weather, but it will make you happy.
