Palatine Illinois Farmers Market in winter!

We know the days are starting to get longer– but we really miss our CSA (community supported agriculture) deliveries of farm fresh produce from the warmer months. It gets challenging trying to choose produce in the winter as we are comparing the measly offerings to the quality of summer’s bounty. I find myself wondering how many tons of air fuel it took to bring the current produce into my local grocery store.

Nicole and her everlovin’ have let me in on their early morning jaunt to the winter Palatine Farmers Market. We were to leave no later than 7:30 am in order to purchase farm eggs. They run out! Most of the market is situated inside the Palatine Train Station which is located on the Union Pacific Northwest Rail line into Chicago. Our first stop was the Hasselmann Family Farm booth. I tried to purchase two dozen eggs but discovered that you can only buy one dozen…. it is suggested that you pre-order your eggs prior to the market delivery to ensure that you go home with these beautiful brown beauties. The yolks are very yellow and the whites hold their shape. These are the eggs from my youth, when Grandma and Grandpa would make them sunny side up after an indulgent sleep-over!

We loved the offerings from The Cheese People. Their customer line was hearty and these folks knew exactly what they wanted. Tom’s Backyard Garden and Middlebury Farms offered very fresh greens that lasted and tasted wonderful.
