sometimes the best things are the least expected
We have another great market day awaiting us this Thursday at Evergreen Park. Come on down and meet you friends, have a picnic, do some healthful shopping and hang out. Oh, and don’t miss Chef-at-Market! More on that below.
This is the time of year to consider buying top-quality, locally-grown fruit and produce to put up as jams, pickles, sauces–you name it! I just canned apricots and applesauce (yellow transparents!), and I think this week I’ll make pickled green beans and a quick-pickled radish. It’s such a treat to open a can of SUMMER in the middle of a dreary northwest winter’s day. Chat with your favorite market vendors for ideas.
If you need ideas for how to prepare your market finds, go online or ask around. The Market Booth always has some ideas for you. Even the lowly radish (sorry radish!) is a goldmine of versatility–you can pickle them, roast them, make salads (see sidebar), fritters, and other delights. Eat them fresh with butter and sea salt and be blown away.
We are happy to have the Honor Bar chef/owner Alan Davis as our guest Chef-at-Market this week. I know he has something unique and special in store for us! Chef demos begin at 5pm.
The Honor Bar is a fantastic neighbor, local agriculture supporter, and Market sponsor. Thank you Honor Bar; we appreciate what you do for our community!
Come to Market and Thursday will be your favorite day of the week!
Dog Day was a BLAST! Thank you to all who shared their time, expertise and furry friends for our edification and enjoyment!
