Nothing is as perfect for a summer meal as fresh Rhode Island seafood, and the Local Catch brings it right to us every Saturday. Shell fish including scallops, oysters and littlenecks, squid, and a variety of ocean fish such as cod, halibut, tuna, and their own tasty smoked fish are available at their stall. Ask Dave for advice on how to cook whatever you choose; he also has a deep knowledge of the various fishies and where they’re caught.
And of course, no meal would be complete without some fabulous farm fresh produce. Golden beets, purple beans and green and yellow squash add color and the best value for nutrition and flavor you’ll find anywhere. Ask our farmers “What’s new?” and “How do I prepare this?” and they’ll be happy to let you in on the latest and greatest they have to offer.
Bring your stash of CLEAN styrofoam take-out containers, cups and large solid packing foam to the market this week; our volunteers Polly and Penelope will take them to the Eco Depot for recycling. Many containers, one trip! NO packing peanuts, please.
LeFavorite Bakery is on vacation this week and next, but don’t despair! Our favorite substitute baker, Jess Watts, will be here with her goodies from Little Falls Bakery and Cafe.
Patois Catering will join us again Saturday; if you didn’t get to try their food last week (they ran out early), they promise to bring more this time to satisfy everyone.
See you at the market.
