Juicy tomatoes, plump corn, crisp cukes and perhaps some blushing peaches will be showing up this Saturday at our farmers’ tables. Tons o’ squash will be mounded in all their glorious variety: summer, zucchini, pattipan, and even some butternut and spaghetti squash. Bring your bags and “pick your own” to take home.
Thank you to all our customers who came out in the showers last Saturday to support our farmers and vendors. Your commitment to our market community makes it possible for them to continue to bring you the best fresh local products every week. We appreciate you!
The samplings scheduled for last week were postponed due the wet weather, but we hope they will go on later this month. Frank Martinelli’s marinara sauce and herbalicious dishes from Blue Skys Farm should be on offer in the near future.
Terry Yeaw of Terry’s Tasty Treasures will be on hand with tastings of hot pepper and other savory jellies. Allison Hamel Dahlquist of Long Entry Farm has also been slaving over a hot stove in her farm kitchen producing rhubarb and dandelion preserves. Not only have these hardy women done the hard physical labor necessary to produce their wares, they have also put in hours researching and refining their recipes. They both have great suggestions for pairing the preserves with other foods for some unique meals.
See you at the market.
