Seven spring greens in a soup pot

お正月のすぐ後に、春の七草と一緒にスープを作りました。

I like how my neighborhood supermarket sells a combination pack of all seven spring greens. I bought this just after new year, added some mushrooms and made soup. It was good!

Where the soup comes from. The weekend farmers market.

ここでスープの材料を毎週買います。一番好きな売店は味が美味しくて、並べ方もすてきです。

This fall I started going to the farmers market every week. Usually by bike, and sometimes meeting my friend Luis. This beautifully arranged stall is where I stop first to pick up turnips, carrots with their leaves still attached, green and red peppers, yuzu, lemons, celery, and sweet potatoes. At United Nations University farmers market, in Aoyama, which is open every Saturday and Sunday.
