Happy Labor Day!

It might be a holiday but our farmers are busy working today so that they can bring the freshest and the best to the Tuesday market. Hopefully they will take some time off today and enjoy a traditional Labor Day cookout with their family and friends. I know we will be grilling some wonderful veggies that I bought on Saturday to go along with the great steaks that I also purchased. I love the way our farmers support each other!


This week you'll be able to find juicy tomatoes...even heirloom ones! There will be heirloom peppers too! In fact, there will be peppers in all sizes and shapes, hot or sweet, big and little! The potato varieties are numerous with “spuds” that make wonderful salads, some that are great for baking, others that are wonderful boiled and mashed. Don't forget that taters are great on the grill too! There's still plenty of raspberries, rhubarb and watermelons available. Oh, and don't forget the beautiful green beans...they went fast on Saturday! So did the colorful flowers and fresh cut herbs. I think they probably will end up as centerpieces on more than one picnic table today! And, how could I forget the wonderful jams, jellies and butters!!! Talk about big flavor in a jar! If your sweet tooth gets the best of you, try a delicious jam cake.


Yup, homegrown goodness galore at our Tuesday and Thursday market! I'll be updating again on Thursday so you all will know what we'll have at our bigger Saturday market, so stay tuned!
