Greek Style Tortilla Wraps

During summer, fruits and vegetables can be found in abundance here. It is this time of season, when all of us consume as many as possible and our summer dishes are making a very good use of them. Apart from s/m where vegetables are sold, usually the best quality ones, can be found either in small greengroceries or in farmer’s market.

Greengroceries exist almost in every neighborhood just like bakeries, drugstores and butcheries. They buy from producers and their prices are more expensive than the ones of the s/m.

Farmer’s markets are programmed to take place once a week in every neighborhood. The municipality chooses one road that is big enough to carry the market, but not as important to the local transportation as to create a jam and closes it down once a week for the market to take place. At six o’clock in the morning all sellers are all set behind their booths that are loaded with vegetables and fruits of all kinds. People from the area start visiting and buying their fresh produce. At 3 to 3.30 in the afternoon the farmer’s market closes down, farmers pick up their stuff and leave. Once the road is empty from people, the garbage trucks pass by and clean the area from the trash, so as for the road to be given back to traffic. The municipality collects a special fee from each and every farmer in order to provide this service.

In farmer’s market the rule of every free market is applied. In early morning, prices of produce are high. As time passes by, farmers start lowering their prices, so as to sell as much as possible from their yield. Of course, price and quality go hand in hand in this case. In the morning you buy expensive, but you get the very best of everything. As day passes by, what is left starts to be of inferior quality and thus the price is equivalent.

Unfortunately, where I live, farmer’s market takes place every Friday, which makes it impossible for me to visit, since I am working. So, I buy my greens form the local greengrocer. Nevertheless, these days that I was on holidays and stayed for a few days at home after returning from our trip, I had the chance to visit and buy some really good stuff from my farmer’s market.

I was thinking what to do with them, as I wanted to change from the ordinary, classic, summer, vegetable dishes and so I decided to make these tortilla wraps. They are very easy to make and they are the perfect snack for the office or a light lunch or supper. I dressed them with a Greek yogurt/feta cheese sauce to give them a Greek twist and it matched perfectly with the vegetables. Very refreshing and tasty choice especially during warm summer days.

  37. I’m not sure how the farmers markets run here, but it looks like your area organizes very well! Too bad your closest one is on Friday. I used to enjoy walking around on weekend morning to shop etc…then with small kids, it was impossible and we kinda stopped going. Now we make videos on weekends that I haven’t had time to visit farmers market. It’s too bad. Your Greek style tortilla wraps – LOVE IT! It looks a lot healthier too!

    That is too bad that your farmers’ market is in your neighborhood while you are at work. The market that I prefer to visit is a very large one and open two days during the week plus on Saturday so everyone has an opportunity to visit.

    Your Greek tortilla wraps look delicious and full of healthy veggies!

    Very interesting as to how your markets are run. Here, during growing season, they are either set up in a small park or parking lot. Your wrap looks like a ratatouille in a flour tortilla. Since I LOVE ratatouille, this wrap has caught my eye. It looks delicious!

    Κι εγώ την περασμένη εβδομάδα που είχα άδεια πήγα στη λαϊκή.
    Ολα τα χρονια που δουλεύω δεν πηγαίνω..

    Πολύ ωραία ιδέα τα ψημένα λαχανικά στη τορτίγια. Ωραία και η σως…
    Ελαφρύ και νόστιμο γεύμα. τέλεια.

    I have a similar problem with my neighborhood farmer’s market. It’s Tuesday afternoons, while I’m at work!

  64. One of my favorite things to do is visit our Farmer’s market. I’m lucky since I can choose three different times and places to get fresh veggies! The feta yogurt sauce looks really tasty! Such a healthy meal!

    There’s nothing like a farmers’ market for the quality of fresh fruit and vegetables. Yours are probably great all year round, but here in Toronto they’re usually open April through October. Your wraps look great!

    I have also noticed that vegetables sold in markets are of a poorer quality than these sold in Greek small shops or markets.
    Very fresh way of serving veggies in summer!
