Come Shop Healthy Foods, Market Customers!
Fresh, healthy foods make for healthy meals and healthy families. Our farmers grow with intention and care to bring you the most nutrient-dense vegetables, fruits, dairy, eggs, and meats they can. Choose from dark berries, green beans, radishes, potatoes, peppers, and tomatoes to create your colorful plate. And use our fresh, cooling greens to blend up a frosty green smooth or make green juice that can detox your body and add a flood of nutrients in one easy step. See our Fresh List below and check out our carrot and kale recipes this week.
The first corn is on the shelf this week! Lor Garden will have bi-color sweet corn for grilling, steaming, or cutting fresh onto salads or tacos. And while you’re here, check out our street corn vendors in the Food Court!
It’s going to be another hot one this weekend. Grab something iced from one of our coffee vendors, a shaved ice from our Hawaiian Ice vendor, or a lemonade from Squatch Dog. Stay cool out there.
|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 Farmers Market Bingo! Earn one $2 PoP Club token for two rows or two tokens for a bingo blackout!
Plus, we’ll be acknowledging the participants of our First Ever Virtual Snap Pea Growing Contest! We’ll be giving awards for the tallest, widest, and overall biggest plants. If you’re still interested in entering the contest, please send a picture of the snap pea plant you planted on June 19th along with your name, age, plus your plant’s height and width to Savina at Sdarzio@yahoo.com. Contest deadline is today, Friday, at 5 pm.
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:
This easy kale salad can convert anyone who claims to dislike kale.
- 2 large bunches curly kale, ribs discarded and greens chopped about 10 cups
- 1 yellow, orange or red bell pepper, ribs and seeds removed and flesh chopped
- 2 medium carrots, grated
- 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil or sunflower oil
- 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1/4 cup freshly ground peanut or almond butter
- 2 tbsp packed brown sugar or honey
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1/4 cup hemp seeds (optional)
Place kale, bell pepper, and carrot into a large bowl. Toss to combine.
In a blender, combine the oil, vinegar, peanut butter, sweetener, and salt, and blend to emulsify. Don't over-blend or it will become too goopy!
Pour the dressing over the salad and massage into the greens for 20-30 seconds. Allow to sit for at least 5 minutes before serving. Serve sprinkled with hemp seeds, if desired.
