What’s at the Edmonds Museum Summer Market: peppers, eggplant and all you need for football-friendly chili
So it may be a bit blustery out this Saturday. The rain may be making an appearance once again, and you may be thinking it is a good day to hunker down and enjoy some football, but don’t forget us here at the market.
This week and next, we welcome Alvarez Organic Farm with a wide selection of peppers and eggplants, perfect for making some ratatouille, or delicious sauce for any one of the fabulous pastas offered from Pasteria Lucchese. And what is football season without some amazing homemade chili. Whether beef, turkey, pork or simply vegetarian, a good, fresh pot of chili can warm up any household and bring family together. If you are not in the mood for chili, the options are endless: lamb or beef for some stew, pork for pulled pork sandwiches, brats or smoked salmon . . . All locally raised or caught, and ready to satisfy any taste buds.
Finally, what is a meal without some tempting sides to enjoy before, during and after. We will have plenty of cheeses on hand from our local cheese makers, and — from Great Harvest and Snohomish Bakery — crusty bread options to enhance your meal. And for after the meal, there is always a pie or two to enjoy from Deborah’s Pies or a treat from Celebrations.
Thinking of cooking up something else? Try an old favorite: applesauce. So much fun to make with the family, and great to enjoy with a pork roast or chops! From Tonnemakers, Collins and Guerrero Farms you can find a fantastic selection of apples and pears to make your own sauce. Old favorites like Jonagolds and MacIntosh are in season, as are the newer varieties like Honey Crisps. Stop by there stands and give some a try. So many flavors in such a sweet, simple apple.
For those of you who have been missing your weekly falafel fix, not to worry, Shimi and Falafel Salam return this week with plenty of delicious meals ready to enjoy while you are at the market, or take with you to enjoy at home.
Next week is our last of the season, so you still have time to come down and enjoy the market for two more weeks.
