Capital City Farmers’ Market – Saturday, August 25 – 9am-noon

I canned my first batch of roasted tomato sauce (recipe) today!! Only a bazillion more batches to go. We need a lot of this sauce during the off-season. I use it in everything…lasagna, eggplant Parmesan, pasta dishes, pizza, vegetable sautes, and everything in between. If you’ve never made roasted tomatoes, I highly suggest trying them.

We have an excellent market ahead! So many vendors, I’m not sure where we will all set up…but we’ll figure it out! A little out of left field, we are welcoming The Snowie Guy and his shaved ice stand. Considering the heat this Saturday, it will be a nice treat.

We have another young entrepreneur joining us Saturday morning. Layton’s Produce will have a variety of vegetables and some apples! Beverly is bringing Halloween decorations this weekend. Nancy’s Nest is offering some beef bundle specials through September 8 and also has honey! Bab’s Bites ‘n Bones is introducing her cinnamon rolls, some of which feature local apple cider. B&G Produce will have a sale on basil again this week…buy two containers, get your third free! And, Vogel Produce will have cantaloupe!

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