I love Waverly Market. I shop for my weekly groceries there every week and love seeing local chefs shopping from local farmers and purveyors. I go early and I usually see Chris Becker of the Bagby Restaurant Group and John Shields of Gertrude’s, talking with farmers, buying cases of fruit, vegetables, herbs and more.  This makes a food nerd like me so happy to see chefs at the market! They’re walking the walk, not just talking the talk.

Check out recipes for Radish + Sweet Corn Salad and Roasted Beets (a ‘la Ina Garten) using organic, local produce from One Straw Farm.

Thanks, John – see you at the market!
