Farmers Market Meal #7 – Poached Eggs in Tomato Sauce

This post is the seventh in a series on meals prepared from ingredients purchased from the farmers market (previous post: Crust-less Cottage Cheese Quiche). I’m fairly new to the farmers market scene. I’ve always had good intentions about purchasing local foods but never followed through because I felt lost walking through the stands wondering what to buy. I decided to combat this by coming up with a plan. Before going to the market, I research recipe ideas using seasonal ingredients with the objective of creating one easy meal with as many local ingredients as possible. This way, when I get to the market, I have focus. It definitely helps that my favorite market provides a sign up for weekly email updates about participating vendors and seasonal items.


Last week, I made a quiche. Since I had a few eggs left over from my prior trip to the farmers market, it seemed logical to make another meal with eggs this week.

One of my favorite ways to have eggs is poached in tomato sauce served over crusty bread. Since I already had the eggs, I just needed to buy some sauce and a loaf of bread from the farmers market, but while there, I couldn’t resist also buying black raspberries and a homemade sticky bun to turn it into brunch.
