Kick off Labor Day Weekend at the Market!

By 1 September 2022

Welcome, September!

We are feeling cooler mornings and earlier sunsets as we make our gradual shift to fall, yet sweet ripe peaches, tomatoes and varieties of squash at the market are endless. Colorful peppers, juicy melon, sweet corn and cucumbers are still offering plenty of that summer sweetness. We are reaping the benefits from a late spring. Usually by now we’re starting to see some pumpkins appear but thankfully, our farmer’s stalls are overflowing with fresh produce.

If you’re thinking of grilling over the long weekend, both Campfire Farms and Martson Farm will be here with beef and pork, plus grilling tips for a top-notch meal. Need a side dish? Add some of Queen Chili’s amazing chili varieties to accentuate your meal with a fresh and spicy kick of flavor.

Since you’re grilling, don’t forget about peaches! The heat of the grill brings out a smoky sweetness and caramelizes the fruit. Add some fresh whipping or ice cream from Lady Lane and you have one heck of a dessert. We have a recipe in this week’s newsletter for you to try.

Whether you’re heading to the beach, working the weekend or staying at home, make sure the market is on your list. Now is a great time to support your local growers, food makers and artisans.

We’re happy to welcome back some returning vendors to the market who we haven’t seen in a while! Make sure to pay them a visit!

We love this simple recipe from New York Times cooking, aptly named The Simplest Grilled Peaches

4-6 peaches (preferable free stone, meaning the fruit falls away from the pit when you cut open the peach)
Olive oil

  1. Step 1Heat a gas grill to medium. If you are cooking on a charcoal grill, wait until the fire has died down to medium to low heat.
  2. Step 2Cut the peaches along their seams, all the way around, and twist their halves off their pits. Brush the cut sides of the peaches with olive oil and grill, cut side down, until the fruit has developed grill marks and started to soften, about 4 to 5 minutes.
  3. Step 3Brush the tops with oil, turn over and move to the side of the grill to continue cooking over indirect heat, another 4 to 5 minutes. You can add flavor by brushing them with maple syrup and bourbon, or molasses and butter. But if they are perfect peaches, they shouldn’t need anything at all.
Each week folks visit our Information Booth inquiring when Squirrelly Jane’s Hazelnuts will be at the market. Here’s a quick way to remember and if you’re a big fan, mark your calendar! Unless otherwise noted, Mary Clair from Squirrelly Jane’s attends the market the FIRST and THIRD Saturdays every month.

Since this Saturday is the first one of September, you’re in luck. Squirrelly Jane’s will be here with your favorite nut butters, roasted and raw hazelnuts and trail mix! Don’t forget to bring your jars back!

808 Cheesecakes is back this week better than ever! In addition to selling their delicious cheesecakes celebrating their Hawaiian heritage, Jeremy and Jessalyn are kicking it up a notch by unveiling a brunch menu.
Starting this week, you can purchase:

3 slices of Punalu’u Sweet Bread French Toast
An island favorite 😉) w/ a choice of 2 of the following toppings:
– Lilikoi drizzle

You can find 808 Cheesecakes in a new location this week given they will be serving hot food, as well. They will be ready to serve you in our dining area, next to Sara’s Tamales and our live music band!
