First of all, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you who came out last Saturday before the wind storm hit to support our farmers and vendors at the Summer Market. Though we had to end early due to high winds, while we were there, we had a wonderful day and enjoyed the morning while holding down our tents.
This Saturday looks to be a beautiful fall day, with a little chill in the air but plenty of sunshine to enjoy while shopping the market.
As many of you have noticed, it is an early season for many of the crops which means you will find a diverse selection of winter squashes and sugar pumpkins at the market this week. The winter squashes make wonderful warm meals, like roasted acorn squash, or add them to some fresh peppers, onions, zucchini and potatoes to make a deliciously wholesome dinner of Roasted Vegetables. It may be too early for some, but pumpkin pie anyone? This weekend looks like a wonderful time to turn on the oven and bake!
This week, Frog Song Farm will have plenty of winter squashes on hand, along with freshly harvested edamame, still on the plant. Check out all the easy recipes you can find online for this tasty treat.
For those looking to make some applesauce or butter, you will find some amazing apple varieties throughout the market. For a fun change, look at mixing in some plums or pears for a delicious twist to enjoy this winter with some pork chops from Sky Valley or maybe lamb chops from Martiny Livestock.
Only five weeks left of the market season, so come down and join the fun! Pick up some breakfast with Snohomish or Aura Bakery and begin your Labor Day Celebration with us!
