I love our weekly trips to the farmer’s market. It still feels a little magical to have fresh local stuff when it is nearly December. I love to just walk around and see what’s new each week. I am mildly obsessed with the mushroom stand. Who knew tree oyster mushrooms were so good? I bought them the first time because they looked cool. We picked up persimmons this week because just about everyone was selling them. The last time I had one it was really bland. These were, of course, much better. They are sugary sweet, and I think they would stand up well to baking. In muffins maybe?
