Come Shop and Have a Chat, Market Customers!
Yes, we have some of the best local produce you can buy. Yes, our crafters create with intention and care. Yes, we enjoy serving, meeting, and talking to you, our customers. We are kind of passionate about what we do, and we work hard to bring you something you can truly enjoy and we can be proud of. So, come say “Hi!” on Saturday or Wednesday and let’s build community, one conversation at a time. See our Fresh List below and check out this week’s recipe from our very own Terratopia Farms, who will have three of the four main ingredients for you to buy this weekend (tomatoes, goat mozzarella cheese, and fresh basil).
Oh, and by the way. Linda from Lil’ Punkin Pie Co. will have the first pumpkin pies of the season. Get ’em while they’re hot!
With cooler weather this weekend, a handpie, mini donuts, Unlawful Waffle, artisan toast, or cup of mac and cheese will go great with a steaming hot cup of coffee or a creamy mocha.
|PoP Club needs volunteers! If you have a couple of hours on a Saturday morning, come hang with us and teach kids about produce in fun, interesting ways.
This week at PoP Club we’ll be playing Plant Matching Games, featuring fabulous flowers and sensational seeds. Test your botanical memory and earn a $2 PoP Club token.
Reminder: the $2 PoP Club tokens that kids earn at PoP Club can only be used at the market to buy fresh produce or a produce producing plant. Be sure to look for PoP Club signs at the booths to confirm that a vendor is participating in our program.
Reminder: Bring your market basket for shopping or a box for your plants. Wagons are available but limited. Our vendors also appreciate small cash bills, especially if you are shopping early.
Fresh this Week:
Perfect as a side or main course, this simple dish is complex in flavor and made with fresh market ingredients.
- 1-2 lbs fresh goat, buffalo, or cow mozzarella, sliced
- 2-3 medium ripe tomatoes, sliced
- fresh basil
- 1 lb ground Italian sausage, cooked
- extra virgin olive oil
- sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
Pre-heat oven to 350°F. Drizzle a little olive oil in the bottom of a cast-iron or other oven-safe pan.
Layer the sliced tomatoes on the bottom of the pan, top with the mozarella, then the basil and finally the sausage.
Bake for about 10 minutes, until the cheese begins to melt. Finish under the broiler for a slight crisp on the cheese.
Enjoy as is or on top of a slice of sourdough toast with a fried egg.
Note: Switch up the toppings to your taste! Vegetarian? Substitute the sausage for sauteed mushrooms and peppers. Try a goat mozzarella or cheddar.
