We will be hosting our annual Hot Dog FUNdraiser on
Saturday, August 19th (that's NEXT WEEK!) and want you to come out and have lunch and shop at our regular vendors as well as some special guest vendors that you and your favorite pups will enjoy!Market Eats of the Week:
Pico de Gallo
Pico de Gallo is the Farmers Market version of making hay while the sun shines! There are still plenty of tomatoes and several varieties of peppers, perfect for a bit of pico! You'll need tomatoes, jalapenos, a lime, salt, pepper, olive oil, onions, and plenty of cilantro. Slice and chop coarsely and throw it all in a bowl. Chill for a couple of hours or overnight, this is one of those things that gets better each day as the flavors blend. Serve with your favorite tortilla chips or on everything from tacos to burgers!
You can still support the Apex Farmers Market by pre-ordering your Christmas Tree from
Neighbor Boy Christmas Tree Lot
Stop by The Welcome Tent for details and quick order form. Early ordering means you get a good price and you're supporting a local business that gives back to the local community when they donate 10% of the tree proceeds directly to the AFM.Produce at the Market this Week:Still lots of produce this week at the market including. but certainly not limited to:
Zucchini, yellow crookneck squash, eggplant, fairy eggplant, several varieties of tomatoes, heirloom tomatoes, potatoes, onions, cucumbers, cabbage, kale, garlic, blueberries, bell peppers, jalapenos, cherry tomatoes, sweet Italian peppers, okra, cantaloupe, peaches, and the list goes on...Shop Local, Support LocalRemember, 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.
