Capital City Farmers’ Market – Saturday, August 17 – 9am-noon

Another weekend means another Sunday afternoon of meal prep and winter preserving. We are almost out of the sweet corn we processed last summer, so it’s quite possible I will be bagging up some sweet kernels this weekend. If we have extra basil, I’ll make some basil oil by simply blending olive oil and basil to a barely pourable consistency into mini muffin tins. A quick freeze on a sheet tray and they all get tossed into a freezer bag together until a cold winter night hits and we want some fresh basil stirred into our Bolognese sauce. You can ask Matt and he will probably agree that I get giddy over preserving food for cool months. I love putting these items into the freezer and knowing I will still be able to eat local vegetables when it’s 10 degrees. I know! I know! Don’t talk about cold weather. Fair enough. Let’s enjoy the rest of this summer. Oh, and welcome back to school students and teachers!

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.
