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!
