Market – Saturday, July 8

Holy heat wave! We are moving slowly, drinking a ton of water, and trying to keep the garden as happy as it can be with this oppressive heat. Cooler weather would be much appreciated. Just sayin’.

Tuesday night market starts in a couple days! Watch for my email and Facebook post on Monday evening. We hope to see a lot of you there!

This will be the last market for lettuce from B&G Produce for a while. Lettuce hates heat, so this is kind of a deal breaker. They will have plenty of romaine and a few butterhead this weekend. Get it while you can. In the meantime, a bunch of pea shoots are available this weekend. Here are some recipe ideas for you!

Sunshine Coffee is back this weekend. I will be headed their way for a large iced Lindy as soon as possible!

Venner Farm is able to join us this weekend. Denise has an abundance of delicious baked goods. You may recall a claim I put on Facebook that she makes the best ginger snap cookies. I stand by my word.

Patrick Lester will be joining Venner Farm’s booth this weekend. Patrick designs metal hat pins. Stop by and check them out!

B&G Produce is offering its first Basil Kale Pesto of the season! They make this using basil and kale from their garden. It is delicious! Here are a few recipe ideas for the pesto. 

As a market, we accept credit cards and EBT. Shop all the vendors and pay once before you leave! Stop at the Market Manager booth to start the process and have fun shopping.
