Market Menu August 15, 2015

Heirloom tomatoes are starting in ernest. They aren't always as pretty as the hybrids but they have that great "Old Time" flavor just perfect for BLTs, your favorite made from scratch pasta sauce, or just fresh eating. Our favorite and one of the most famous heirloom tomatoes is the Brandywine show in the picture below taken at our stand at the Rochester Farmers Market last week.

Don't forget the basil to use with your tomatoes. We are harvesting lots and have gallon bags for $5. Basil at the same price as lettuce, what a deal.

If you didn't get some of our Ambrosia sweet corn last week you missed a treat. See us this week for fresh picked, chemical free, no sprays and no bugs. We have enough corn this week for freezing.

Andrea is picking Okra, it starts slow the first few weeks. If you want some, come early.

Don't miss the squash blossoms, baby zucchini, or patty pan!

French Fillet beans are the best beans on the planet (tender, pencil thin and no strings).

Andrea dried some mints and herbs and is making some Vegetable Freak... Freaky Tea. Sweetened with fresh stevia.
  • Andrea's Tropical Tea - Orange Mint, Pinneaple Mint and Stevia
  • Jenna's Sweet Chocolate Tea - Chocolate Mint & Stevia
  • Lisa's Orange Blossum Tea - Orange Mint, Spearmint & Stevia
  • Just Mint - A Blend of Spearmint & Stevia
  • Perky Pinapple, Lemon Majito, Minty Sage, Rosemary Lavendar (lots more).
