Western Wake Farmer's Market (Triangle, NC)

I just wanted to recommend a really fantastic new farmer's market that just opened in Cary near Davis Drive and Morrisville-Carpenter Road (in the Carpenter Village area).

I've been there the last two weekends and have been really impressed. It's a little smaller than Durham or Carrboro, but there are some really great meat and veggie vendors - and even a seafood vendor. I didn't even have to go to the grocery store this weekend - yay!

Last week, we tried a roast from Smith Angus Farm and, I swear, it was the best piece of beef I've ever eaten.

This week we bought some triggerfish from the seafood vendor, which I hadn't tried before - it was fantastic. We fried it up in a white cornmeal crust ( the cornmeal was sourced and milled locally and purchased at the market), and served it with some swiss chard (again, from the market) and rice (not from the market).

Later this week we will be eating jalapeno pork sausage and kale over goat cheese grits - all purchased this weekend (from the market).

    Thanks. That sounds like one I'd really like. I'm a good drive away, but my brother lives in Cary. When I get out that way, I will try to get to the Farmer's Market.
