Shopping for Your Easter Brunch at a Farmers Market

Frisco Fresh Market, Local Outdoor Market

The perfect Easter brunch is light, easy, and delicious. That means lots of colors and flavors, at a great time of year for fresh produce, meats, and other farm-fresh delights. Best of all, you can come away from a great farmers market like Frisco Fresh Market with everything you need for your Easter treats. This holiday, try to see if you can source everything from the market for an organic, sustainable meal. You may just start a new tradition! Here are some ideas as you make your way through the delights of the market.

Eggs Benedict

For a classic brunch dish that’s perfect for Easter, pick up some English muffins, Canadian bacon or ham, eggs, white vinegar, butter, and fresh parsley. And for the Hollandaise sauce: More eggs, lemon juice, butter, and cayenne.

Spring Veggie Quiche or Frittata

Make a quiche with farm-fresh eggs and filled with fresh vegetables like asparagus, peas, and leeks. Add some goat cheese or feta for extra flavor and serve it up in slices. Or try a heartier spring vegetable frittata, with crumbled bacon or sausage on top of a chunkier mix. You could even roast the veggies on their own with a little brushed-on oil, herbs, spices, and pepper for a tasty vegan treat.

Roasted Duck with Cherries

Roast a whole duck with crispy skin and serve it with a homemade cherry sauce. The tartness of the cherries complements the richness of the duck. This delightful dish pairs well with cherry or pomegranate mimosas, if you’d like to add a little kick to the proceedings. Champagne and fruit juice to individual taste can make for a delicious spring celebration.

Deviled Eggs with Fresh Herbs

Elevate the classic deviled egg by topping it with smoked salmon, or some other savory treat, and fresh herbs like dill or chives. Ever tried deviling a duck egg? They’re rich and creamy. This crowd-pleaser is always the first to run out at a brunch, so don’t be afraid of making them in bulk!

Strawberry Spinach Salad

Toss together fresh baby spinach, sliced strawberries, crumbled feta cheese, and toasted almonds, and drizzle with a balsamic vinaigrette. Something about the kick of the vinaigrette pairs wonderfully with the strawberries and everything is improved with a little feta. You can also try goat cheese for a more savory twist on this favorite, or switch out the almonds for other nuts to change the flavor.

Roasted Lamb with Rosemary

Serve a succulent roasted lamb with garlic and rosemary, and pair it with roasted vegetables. You can go for all-spring veggies, or get heartier with things like carrots, potatoes, and parsnips. Best for a sit-down brunch served with tea or lemonade.

Lemon Blueberry Scones

Pick up some scones or bake your own with fresh blueberries and lemon zest, and serve them with lemon curd or clotted cream. Don’t be surprised when these disappear quickly! They’re sure to become a house favorite.

Seared Duck with Orange

Pan-sear duck breasts and serve them with a sweet, tangy orange glaze. Garnish with fresh herbs like thyme or rosemary, and don’t forget the vegetables to balance out the sweetness. Cauliflower is a strong choice for roasted veggies that will go great with any duck dish.
