Westminster Farmer's Market Report for 09-04-09

Westminster Farmers’ Market Report from Maple Heights Farm


Pay NO Attention to the Weather.  It is Still Summertime!


  Our Students are back at school, Labor Day is upon us, and summer is NOT over!  Summer eating has just kicked into gear this month.  Only now are we tasting perfection in our tomatoes and peppers and melons.  Don’t miss this opportunity to taste real food at its peak of flavor.  Summer may be over in a few weeks, but summer eating continues until the first frost which may be six to eight weeks away (may be wishful thinking but I can hope)!  Expect all the bounty of July and August and add to that some of the cool weather crops, onions, lettuce, Brussels sprout, cabbage, broccoli, winter squash and more.  If you consider summer over now you are selling yourself short and you can look forward to a long off season – we had enough of that last winter.  So continue eating from our local gardens by visiting us at the farmers’ market. 

 Tomatoes are incredible right now.  There are so many varieties available at the market and you should try them all!  Find your favorites and give up those pink grocery store things.  My favorite use of tomato is simple tomato salad:  tomato, onion, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, goat cheese or mozzarella and black olives.  I am experimenting with different tomatoes and combinations of tomatoes, juliet, brandywine pink, black krim, and a colorful mix of cherry tomatoes have all been delicious.  I am still waiting for evergreen and golden girl to ripen (though maybe evergreen already has??? Hmmm…).  If tomato salad is not your thing, how about thick slices of tomato topped with basil and mozzarella, drizzled with olive oil and roasted in the oven for a few minutes?  That along with a loaf of bread and a bottle of wine makes up the ultimate summer evening meal.
