Produce is in full swing and we have an abundance to share with you! There are so many ways to preserve this bounty from canning to freezing to dry storage. Great resource for ideas? Yep, Farmers! Market Eats of the Week:Copeland Springs Farm's Favorite Way to Eat Beets
Roasted beets, topped with chunks of goat cheese, and toasted nuts with fresh basil snipped on top. Better take a seat, this is gooood! Beet season is quickly coming to an end, this weekend will probably be the last until fall....so, eat your root veggies seasonally!
Remember, when you shop at the Apex Farmers Market you are SUPPORTING LOCAL: farmers, businesses, and economy! Stop by the Welcome Tent or find the Market Ambassador roaming the Market to make a donation this Saturday or stop by our table for free coffee and a chat about all things AFM!
Speaking of SNAP/EBT, we are matching your dollars again this Market Season! What does that mean? I means if you swipe for $5, we give you $10 or $10 get $20 or $20 get $40 and so on! You get twice as much fresh, local produce, meat, eggs, cheeses and more for the same amount of SNAP/EBT money. We want to help your family eat well and be healthy so stop by our Welcome Tent today to swipe your EBT card and double the value of your swipe in SNAP/EBT tokens this Saturday at the Market.
Special Vendor Information for June 24th:
Sweet Farms & Fruit: The Sweet Farmers will be at the AFM this week with the first of the eggplant and peppers. We'll have Asian eggplant varieties Hansel and Fairy Tale, great for grilling and roasting and maybe a few traditional purple eggplant. Giant Marconi peppers are awesome on the grill as well and regular green peppers and jalapenos will be available, too. We continue to have a good supply of squash and zucchini along with cucumbers and red and white candy onions. We'll also have a few blueberries this week. The tomatoes are just starting to ripen up, but they probably won't be ready for this week. In the flower department we'll have lots of mixed bouquets for you to choose from. And remember, we don't spray any of our produce or flowers with synthetic pesticides or herbicides.
Natural Choice: This week at the market we're bringing a batch of Cherry Preserves and a series of photos showing how it's done at facebook.com/NaturalChoiceLLC
This will be your last chance to pick up some German Mustard for your 4th of July cookout.
