You say po-tay-toe, we say hooray! Potatoes have finally returned to the Little Italy Mercato and we couldn't be happier. Just as the weather warms, so do our hearts now that Polito Family Farms - yes, your trusty citrus vendor - recently cross certified with Weiser Family Farms to bring the little spuds to the masses every Saturday. Delicate little fingerlings in banana tones and rosy hues, ready to become your next market staple. We see a future full of potato salads, potatoes roasted and served next to a nice steak from Son Rise or Da Le Ranch, and blanched minted peas from Suzie's Farm or potatoes scattered on our plate of salad nicoise. What will you be making?
