Little Dom’s chef Brandon Boudet stocks up on things to pickle at the market. First stop? JF Organic Farms for okra, sugar snap peas, green tomatoes and cucumbers.
This year’s pie contestants competed across a range of seven different categories ranging from Fruit, Savory, Cooked Custard, Cream, Nut and Vegan, along with a special “World” category. The competition was fierce, with so many creative entries submitted for each of the categories.
This week market manager Laura Avery talks with farmer Andy Mariani of Andy’s Orchard about why his fruits have such unique flavors. He says his growing region benefits from the Coastal Valleys’ warm days and cold nights.
She also talks with Nicole Rucker, co-owner of Cofax, and former KCRW Pie Contest winner, who is shopping for July Flame peaches.
