This Sunday seemed like the sweet spot of summer settled in. We had a perfect mix of sun and clouds. The crowd was constant with a relaxed sense of just enough summer left to slow down and enjoy! (For those getting ready to move college kids back to school – not so!) Even our vendors reflected that sense – much harvesting remains, and fall crops are not far behind, but the frenzy of Market season is easing.
Could the peaches from Bennett Orchards be sweeter this year? It seems so! We have a few more weeks to indulge, and, yes, freeze!
Herbs, Spice… still has fragrant herbs, tomatoes, and those kooky shishito peppers just keep coming!
Between Ficner’s Farms and Wimbrow Farms you will continue to find plenty of corn, tomatoes, peppers, squash, and sweet, sweet melons!
Find yourself running solo for dinner, and one of those great frozen dinners just won’t cut it? Try this:
Bruschetta Salmon and Corn
- Husk and clean one ear of corn. Set aside
- Prepare bruschetta:
10 cherry tomatoes, halved lengthwise
4 basil leaves, coarsely chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste
Mix well in a bowl and set aside
- Rub salmon filet with olive oil and oregano. Broil on high for 7 minutes, or until it flakes easily.
- While salmon is cooking, soak a paper towel in water, and wring out. Roll ear of corn in towel, and microwave for 5 minutes. Remove towel and season with butter, salt, pepper, Old Bay, or whatever strikes your fancy!
- Spread bruschetta over salmon
The Market offers a wide variety of lettuces from 302 Aquaponics, and Fresh Harvest Hydroponics. Unfortunately, Bill Jordan reports that his popular arugula is being attacked by a mysterious white moth. The only good news there is we can rest assured that our farmers always forego harmful chemicals!
Old World Breads and Honey Bee Lake Apiary never fail to provide us with mouth-watering breads and pastries to satisfy any whim! Shop early to secure your favorites!
We look forward to seeing you next Sunday!
