Get Your Breakfast at the Market!
Even if you’re a breakfast traditionalist, you will find the Market has a remarkable variety of local, tasty items to get your day get off to an amazing start!
To start with, what could be more basic than cereal? Supermarket breakfast aisles are full of cereals with long ingredient lists and loads of sugar. Local cereal options at the Market include Maple Puffed Spelt from Pleiades Maple Products and Puffed Corn with Honey from Mud Run Farm. Both have a mere three ingredients, all of which are pronounceable!
Waffle fans may do a little waffling themselves when they struggle to decide which one of the Waffle Hub’s delicious Liège Belgian waffles to enjoy. Or try the Sourdough Einkorn waffles from Mud Run Farm. If you’re more of a toast person, get one of Yawning Bear’s artisan loaves and top it off with apple butter from Sippel Family Farm! Speaking of apple butter, the Versatile Vegan loves these Oatmeal Apple Butter Bars.
No breakfast is complete without coffee and you can get fresh-brewed, whole beans, and ground from Silverbridge & Ramble Coffee. And enjoy that hot coffee with coffee cake from Shepard Baking! Also, a wide selection of teas can be found at Blue Owl and Foraged & Sown. A wonderful complement to your tea is JNA Bakery’s breakfast bread that includes greens and orange.
Could there possibly be a more perfect breakfast item than a bagel? Wooster’s own Wootown Bagels offers delightful, chewy, hand-rolled and boiled bagels. Or try simit from Turkish bakery Tulip Cafe. It’s a Turkish bagel that has a crunchy sesame or poppy seed exterior and soft bread on the inside.
For a super healthy breakfast the Versatile Vegan suggests getting spinach from 9N Farm or Franklinton Farms and preparing these easy Savory Oats. Or get apples from Gillogly and make these Vegan Apple Pancakes!

This week's contribution comes from John Vizcarrondo, a faithful WFM customer for many years. Every Saturday he takes home loads of fresh veggies and creates many delicious dishes -- like this Puerto Rican-inspired Bean-Stuffed Delicata Squash. We think you'll enjoy the dish and the story behind it . . .
"About 5 years ago, Gene Woods of 9N Farm waxed poetic about delicata squash and convinced me to take one home. Prior to that, I would see them at the grocery store and the farmers market, wondered what they were, mused how different they looked, and moved on. But I had the good fortune of asking Gene, what do you do with those? Well, he gave me the standard “slice and bake” formula, which is very good. Weeks later I came back to encourage him to stuff the squash and make a main dish out of it, rather than a side. I later learned that what I thought was creative had been done by thousands of people, as evidenced by the results if you search for “stuffed delicata” online.
That’s OK with me because no one (I claim) has stuffed a delicata with the beans prepared as in this recipe. These beans have a little story of their own: My mother used to make the most delicious beans ever. Full stop. When I left home, I tried many times over the phone to get the recipe. But she was an intuitive cook and any question of how much to use of a particular ingredient, would be met with unhelpful comments like, “just a little”, or “not too much”. The breakthrough came while visiting my sister (at least 12 years ago, I think). I was able to watch her cook beans and they were delicious. Then I cooked a pot under her supervision and the rest is history, as they say. Are they up to my mother’s level? Nope, but they are darned good!"
Market Note: You can also source garlic, dried beans (soak and cook before proceeding with John's recipe), and cheese from the winter market. In the summer, look for onions, peppers, and fresh herbs.
So, who's up next? We'd love to hear from you!
