Local Bounty update

| August 15, 2013

It’s a chilly start to the market week, but we’ll take cooler temperatures over rain. Last week the market was full of farm-fresh veggies: Tomatoes, yellow squash, onions, corn, greens, herbs and more. We’re sure you’ll find much of the same this week.

We are truly excited about our upcoming Farm to Table Dinner (at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 24) We’re hosting this fundraising event in conjunction with Clary Gardens to celebrate local food, wine (non-alcoholic beverage option available), the beautiful landscape of the county and local musical talent. If you haven’t already made your reservation for this truly unique dining event, contact Chris Campbell at 622-6524 (ext 1). Reservations are needed by Monday, Aug. 19.

Keene Creek Farm – the Mulletts

We will replenish part of our pork supply Friday afternoon/Saturday. Bacon and Canadian bacon won’t be ready for another week or two though. We will also bring a couple bags of curly kale and some more herbs. Don’t forget about our dry mixes (Aunt M’s Monster Mix, Rustic Herb Pizza Doughs and Rosemary Artisan Bread Mix) on our shelf. Oh, and some dip mixes too – Mexican Fiesta, Veggie Herb and Ranch.

Maple Hollow Farm – the Maples

The sweet corn is finally ready, Maples will have some of their harvest at the market for you this weekend.

Windy Hill Berry Farm & Vineyard – the Zelones
Can’t believe school starts next week! Need a quick, hearty breakfast for the kids (or yourself)? Scramble some of our eggs the night before with some shredded Pearl Valley cheese and store in the refrigerator until morning. The next morning, pour into a hot frying pan (they will cook quickly) and serve as a breakfast sandwich on one of our English muffins. We also have various jellies for those PB&J’s. Our Calypso is a vanilla bean/apple jelly and very kid friendly. Do you all have your pickles made? Refrigerator pickles (Google the recipe) are easy to make (no canning involved). And make sure you pick up some onions to go in the pickles. It’s blackberry season! We will bring some to Local Bounty, but remember, if the store’s sold out of berries when you get there, you can always come to the farm and pick your own. We’re open ’til dusk to fit your schedule. In honor of back to school, here is the Chicken Joke of the Week:  Why did the chicken cross the road by the playground?  To get to the other slide.

As always, many thanks for your support of our year-round farmers market. We value each one of you.
