As the summer heat returns this weekend, you can find a diverse selection of vegetables and fruits throughout the market. From traditional fruits like peaches, nectarines, and blueberries to some fun hybrids like Dinosaur Egg Pluots, nectar-cots and more — there are tastes to suit everyone.
If you are into pickling, check out Gypsy Rows Farm for their first harvest of pickling cucumbers. They are fresh from the fields and ready for your kitchen.
For me, the hot days mean time to enjoy fabulous salads featuring so many of our market veggies. Beginning with a fresh head of lettuce and adding some carrots, peppers, radishes, maybe little tomatoes, and maybe a little fresh chives. Then top it all with some fresh smoked salmon from Wilson Fish. Perfect!
Looking for certified organics? Check out Tonnemaker Farms for a wide selection of fruits and veggies or ACMA Farm for fresh pit fruits. From Eastern Washington we welcome Alvarez Organics with organic potatoes, beans, peanuts, and of course, peppers. For organic meat, Sky Valley has a wide selection of sausages, chops, and more for the barbecue.
See you at the market, open Saturday, 9 a.m.-3 p.m.
