Local Food for Your Local Adventures

When the sunshine and warm weather arrive, there is an urge to do everything possible outside.  Here are our recommendations for locally inspired and Wednesday Market-sourced fare for all your outdoor adventures!

Food for a hike
Did you know that this upcoming weekend (June 3-4) you can enjoy free entry to state parks and forests in Wisconsin?  Grab your sunscreen, hiking boots, and a loot of energizing and tasty snacks from market this Wednesday (or Saturday!) to fuel a Sunday hike!  Our picks: classic beef jerky or teriyaki snack sticks from Murph's and some chocolate-chip studded granola bars from Silly Yak Bakery.

Food for a picnic
For a picnic, you want foods that are easily transportable and don't involve too much silverware!  This green bean and tomato salad would be delightful, especially paired with a unique 2 potato potato salad featuring sweet potatoes. Grab some crackers and cream cheese dips from Violet Rose Co., some cookies from Murphy Farms, and make a batch of iced sweet mint tea, and you are ready to bask in the sun.

Food for the porch
Your porch or backyard may not be the epitome of adventure - but it's certainly worth savoring when it is warm, breezy, and mosquito-free!  Grill some flank steak with cilantro-based chimichurri sauce. Pair with some foil wrapped radishes thrown on the grill to caramelize.  Don't forget: porch-eating doesn't have to be confined to dinner alone!  Whip up some chilaquiles with fried eggs for a weekend brunch: be sure to grab fresh cilantro and radishes to slice thin to garnish.

Happy adventuring and eating!
