When Stephanie Weidner Lipsey, market manager of the Fayetteville Farmers Market, asked me to go on "Bridge Street Live" (News Channel 9 - WSYR TV) with her to help promote the market -- and make a dish using ingredients from the market -- the answer was a no-brainer.
Sure! Why not?
The Fayetteville Farmers Market, now in its second year, is a good one, with nearly 40 vendors (no re-sellers) offering a diverse range of goods. In addition to in-season, local produce, the market has vendors offering meats, cheeses, eggs, yogurt, milk, honey, maple syrup, jams and jellies, salsa, pesto, bread, cookies, cakes and other baked goods, chocolate/confections, coffee -- everything you need, or could want, to make a meal.
To serve with the frittata, Stephanie brought gluten-free bread from The Cookie Connection (Syracuse), croissants and pastries from Alambria Springs Farm, Earlville, and meadow butter from Kriemhild Dairy Farms, Hamilton, to the "Bridge Street" studio.
