Local Bounty Update

| July 18, 2013

Local Bounty Shoppers – Here are a few updates from our vendors…

Carson House Farm – the Lozowskis

Naturally grown vegetables are starting to come in hot and heavy (just like the weather). We will have green beans, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, mild and  a few hot peppers, yellow squash, zucchini, cucumbers and onions available this week. We have a Jersey steer at the butcher currently and should be ready in a week or two. Lamb is in good supply. Lamb chops are great on the grill and are easy to cook. It can be as easy as a little salt and pepper and grill. Carson House Farm products are always naturally grown and raised.

Keene Creek Farm – the Mulletts

This week we won’t have anything new or out of the normal for the market. We’ve restocked our pork freezer the best that we can. We’re  out of peppered bacon and Canadian bacon until September, but we’ve got lots of other pork cuts you can choose from. Almost all of our meat cuts are fantastic on the grill – from boneless loin chops (your choice: smoked, butter and garlic marinated, or naked) to brats (your choice: bratwurst, mild Italian, Cajun or cheese). We will have more herbs this week – basil for pesto, dill for cucumber/potato salads, and rosemary for marinades. Our zucchini got hit by some blight, it might be awhile before we have more available.

Rosemary”s Baked GoodsRosemary McFarland
This week I will have the usual candies, bars, cookies, zucchini and banana nut breads. I will also have fruit and cream pies. It is vacation time for the McFarland clan. I will have my products in the store this Thursday and Friday but not Saturday. Back to normal, hopefully, on August 1st.

Windy Hill Berry Farm & Vineyard – Zelones
Boy has it been a hot week! But the produce hasn’t seemed to mind, thanks to our irrigation lines and fish emulsion fertilizers. This week we’ll be bringing the following to Local Bounty: cucumbers-regular and pickle size, summer squash, yellow and green zucchini, red onions, green tomatoes (Google Green Tomato Pie), blueberries by the pint, English muffins, a fresh batch of blackberry jam and blueberry-banana bread, and free range eggs with some pullet eggs (from young hens) available by the flat or by the dozen. If you’re fixing scrambled eggs this weekend, follow this tip. To increase the volume of beaten eggs, use a bowl that’s about 10 in. in diameter and 5-6 in. deep, and that has a rounded bottom. A balloon whisk is the ideal tool for incorporating air into the eggs. Terese is working the market from 2 to 6 p.m. on Friday. Come in and say hi in English, Spanish or Sign Language. Enjoy!

Farm to Table Dinner

Let us wine you and dine you with local food and wine on August 24 at Clary Gardens. Chef Mike Cichon will prepare dinner using locally grown foods and we’ll serve Shawnee Springs Wine at this unique outdoor dining event. The Dotson Brothers will provide post-dinner entertainment. Attached is a flyer with more information.

Many thanks for your continued support of our market.
