Get in touch with your sour side at the Little Italy Mercato with delicious pickled vegetables. Starre Spice’s Vintage Veggies include tomatoes, green beans, white asparagus and carrots, all organic, pickled with their secret spice blend. They’re crisp and tangy; try them with Ewephoria, a sheep’s milk Gouda available at Taste Cheese, or chop them and add to potato salad - visit Polito Farm, Sage Mountain Farm or Proios Family Farm for the spuds.
Ever wanted to make your own pickled veggies? With an abundance of green tomatoes available at Rodney Kawano Farms, you can pick up a pound and try this technique yourself!
Majestic Garlic’s pickled garlic cloves are raw, organic, made with apple cider vinegar and surprisingly mild. They deliver all the health benefits of raw garlic without the bite, and come in fun flavors like curry and cayenne. Want to try making your own pickled garlic? Grab some heads from Suzie's, Vang's or Proios farm and follow these steps.
Take a walk on the wild side at Happy Pantry, where all the pickles are naturally fermented by wild organisms - popular items include California kimchi, ginger radishes, rutabaga with chard and classic sour dills. Try the spicy pickles on your next tuna sandwich or by themselves as a snack. We’re pickled to have them at the market!
