Capital City Farmers’ Market – Saturday, August 3 – 9am-noon

At the B&G Produce garden plots, summer has finally arrived. Matt texted me pictures of Padron peppers, cherry tomatoes, and okra. That’s it. Summer is here.

I’ll be honest with all of you. I am giddy waiting for that small handful of cherry tomatoes. The first ones will be popped directly into my mouth and thoroughly enjoyed. But, the next set? Those will be roasted and tossed into a warm pasta of roasted eggplant, pesto, and fresh mozzarella…one of my absolute favorite summer meals.

I’m not over the other lovely garden items. Our pickling cucumbers have spent more time as slicers this season and I’m loving them. Try this Roasted Sweet Potato & Sauteed Greens Poke Bowl for a wonderful summer meal that also makes excellent lunch leftovers.

We are excited to welcome the Right Turn this weekend. They are hosting a booth to showcase artwork created by students and staff. Cards and prints will be available with donations to support their education programs. Right Turn is a United Way partner agency that supports education across the lifespan. Staff will be available to provide information about upcoming classes and answer questions.

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.
