Capital City Farmers’ Market – Saturday, August 18 – 9am-noon

Last week, I mentioned wanting to be overflowing with tomatoes. I still want that. I am ready. But, instead, we are overflowing with pickling cucumbers and zucchini! Thank goodness our Preserve It CSA members are ready to make pickles! This weekend I will make zucchini relish to sell at market, so that will help with the excess. Now, I just need to have a chat with all those tomato plants. Be right back.

We have a couple special treats this week. If you haven’t shopped at the Tuesday night market, you haven’t met Grady . Grady is a young entrepreneur who is selling sweet corn to help pay for his college. This young dude is a salesman. He knows a ton about the sweet corn he is selling, helped plant it, and helps harvest. He’s a cutie and I hope you all support him this weekend. Added bonus, his sweet corn is pretty tasty.

Bad River Pack is back after a hiatus to Sturgis. You’ve been craving their beef jerky? Problem solved.  Hanisch Farms is here for their monthly visit, so it’s a great time to stock up on their items. A quick, easy, and super delicious meal we’ve been making after long days in the garden is lamb kofta. Essentially these are lamb meatballs and the recipe is simple. Saute some onion and garlic in a pan until nice and brown. Cool slightly and mix with one pound ground lamb, about ¼ cup Panko, chopped parsley/cilantro/mint (whatever you have on hand), salt & pepper, and if you have it…some Garam Masala and/or curry powder. Form into small patties or meatballs and fry in olive oil until perfectly browned/crisp. Serve with pita, sour cream sauce, feta, and sliced garden tomatoes. The sour cream sauce is simply sour cream with chopped herbs (whichever ones you added to the meat mixture), salt & pepper, and lime juice. As a side note, this sauce is also divine with boiled potatoes or your morning omelet.

We’re not done yet. Lauren is back this weekend with her pour over coffee and she’s bringing a friend. Most of her coffee beans are from Westbound Coffee out of Brookings. Andrew is joining us for this one market and will have his coffee beans and custom T-shirts. Be sure to stop by their booth and also check him out on Facebook @westboundcoffee.

Whew, we’ve got a lot ahead…and I didn’t even mention the rest of the vendors, story time with Rawlins Library, and face painting with Amanda!
