What's at the Market This Week

JULY 19- 

There are so many foods that shout "summer" to me--watermelons, fresh tomatoes, sweet corn, butterbeans. Ah, butterbeans and corn... Succotash. My grandmother cooked the butterbeans and corn, then added a dash of cream at the end. My mother used to saute' chopped onion first (in bacon drippings!) then add the butterbeans, corn, and a chopped fresh tomato or two. That was Triple Succotash. Whichever you fix, they're both delicious. And both butterbeans and corn are available right now!

This week at the Market: beans, blackberries, blueberries, butterbeans, cantaloupe, carrots, sweet corn, cucumbers, eggplant, onions (including white and red), peaches (regular, white, donut), peppers (sweet & hot), potatoes, squash (yellow, zucchini, golden zucchini, round zucchini, patty pan), tomatoes (slicing, heirloom, grape, cherry), watermelons (regular, seedless, yellow). A surprise or two usually shows up. Local raw honey, fresh-made jams, jellies and preserves are available.

Mrs. Yoder's Kitchen will be here with their sourdough donuts; Real Country Sausage will be here with a variety of nitrite-free pork sausages (kielbasa, brats, chorizo, Italian, etc.), perfect for the grill; Marty will be here with fresh fried pork rinds in a variety of flavors (Old Bay, Cheddar, Lemon-Pepper, etc.); and Two-and-a-Half Irishmen will be here with fresh baked goods, such as Irish soda bread, Irish Porter bread (made with Guinness), scones, zucchini bread, etc.

Big Daddy's Barbecue will be here with Carolina-style barbecue, applewood smoked chicken salad will all the fixings and Phal's Café will be here with Asian noodle bowls, spring rolls, kebobs and more. Beat the heat with some of The Holy Grael's ice cold fruity sorbet or take home a bottle of Grayhaven Winery's finest for later.

Hand-crafts from local artisans are available.

We're here every Thursday from 10 until 2 in the parking lot of The Great Big Greenhouse. Remember to get your Farm. Fresh. Pledge card marked for every $10.00 you spend. When it's filled give it to your vendor (or to me) and it will be turned in to The Virginia Dept. of Agriculture to enter you into a drawing for one of three Virginia's Finest gift baskets worth $100 or more.
