Retro Baltimore: 50 things we miss

Waverly Market report

Alan Morstein of Regi's sends news of produce -- and sausage -- on sale this week. He also relates a cautionary parking tale. Here's Alan. LV

It appears that the cooler morning temperatures have gotten shoppers out of bed and straight to the Waverly Market this morning as it was very busy by 7:00 a.m. The vendors we all smiles this morning with the turnout and improved weather over the last few weeks.

New arrivals at Waverly today were Butter Beans from Tom the "Bean Man" and fresh ground -- not frozen -- organic pork butt Italian sausage seasoned with fennel, dandelion, leaks, garlic and a hint of red wine sold by Martin Farms, whose specialty is fresh herbs.

Second fields of crops are now in plentiful supply featuring local favorites: heirloom tomatoes, Roma tomatoes, beefsteak, eggplant, peppers, watermelons, squash, zucchini, grapes, potatoes, corn, herbs, onions, string beans and more.

On another note: be patient with parking and DO NOT park at the Papa Johns lot adjacent to the market. Two cars we being towed at a cost of $250 each. One customer while purchasing bison was fortunate enough to see her car in the process of being towed and was "let off the hook" for $150, in cash of course.

Bison is lower in fat than chicken and salmon but for this lady quite expensive today.

Enjoy this beautiful weekend.
