You might be wondering what there is to buy at the Farmers Market so early in the season, especially here in the Okanagan, with our cool, slow to arrive Springtime weather.  I was pleasantly surprised to find fresh greens…

Incredibly sweet carrots (dug from the ground- last fall crop) and cabbages (picked and stored from fall) ……

Farm Fresh Eggs and…

Homemade Whole Spelt Flour (grown locally and stone ground) Pizza Crust…

Homemade (meatless, cheeseless) Pizza

Whole spelt flour pizza crust

No salt added tomato paste

Pesto sauce (homemade is best)


Thinly sliced red onion

Fresh baby spinach leaves

Sliced mushrooms

Sundried tomatoes (olive oil packed, rinsed well with hot water)

Artichokes (canned, not pickled), chopped

Fresh chopped basil

Spread thin layer of tomatoe paste over crust. Spread pesto (about 2 tbsp) over tomato paste. Layer all the toppings except basil. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.  Remove and top with chopped basil, fresh ground pepper.  Delicious!
