What’s Coming to Market:

 

Earth Spring Farm: Greens for now, seeds for later! Earth Spring Farm will have lettuce mix, Salanova lettuce heads, Siberian kale, spinach, and a variety of herbs from our greenhouses, including mint, french sorrel, onion + garlic chives, parsley and pea shoots. Pair with our farm fresh, non-GMO eggs. We’re also bringing seedlings ready to transplant, and our own soil mix for your garden! Handmade on the farm by Farmer Mike.  earthspringcsa.com

 

Truck Patch Farm:  Tomatoes!!!  Come check out our many heirloom varieties, plus roma, market reds, and cherry tomatoes.  Other veggies include cucumbers, summer squash, kale, beets, various herbs, spinach, and spring mix.  We also sell a range of pork products including chops, sausages, ribs, scrapple, bacon and roasts.  Eggs until they sell out.    www.truckpatchfarms.com

 

Richfield Farm:  We will have spinach and tomatoes this week in addition to our herbs, plants & seedlings for your garden.  www.facebook.com/pages/Richfield-Farm/108853529132734

 

Quaker Valley Orchards:  Yellow peach special $30 a half bushel! White peaches, nectarines, plums and donut peaches. Blackberries, watermelon and cantaloupes.  Honeycrisp and pristine apples   Summer squash, beans, potatoes, tomatoes and onions!  www.quakervalleyorchards.com

 

Reids Orchard:  Most of the usual suspects are still around, blueberries, blackberries, and plums if you like small fruit.  We will have lots of all varieties of peaches, white, yellow, & donut and some white nectarines & Formosa and Duarte plums.  Heirloom tomatoes are in full force, this would be a great week to stock up before they are gone.  We also have several new apple varieties available this week: Summer Treat, Mollie’s Delicious and Ginger Gold in addition to Zestar and Pristine!  Heirloom tomatoes have become pretty popular over the past few years. I didn’t even know there was a difference when I started working at Reid’s in 2012.  There are a few things that make heirloom tomatoes different from the red ones you get in the store in January.  Heirlooms tomatoes taste better, you can tell the difference in taste between a Black Zebra and Mr. Stripey (my favorite name) because of the different levels of acid.  Each heirloom tomato has a unique flavor and they are all different. Heirloom tomatoes are not mass produced and the seeds have been passed along generations (Typically 50+ years for many of the varieties).  They are also less disease resistant because they have not been genetically enhanced, which can lead to the higher price point and limited availability.  They are also open-pollinated, which means that they rely on the wind and insects for pollination.  We grow many of the popular and less well known varieties, so I definitely recommend stopping by market this week to pick out a few to try.  Remember- you can always pre-order items to pick up at the Market.  Head to the ‘Farmers’ Market’ tab of our website to pre-order.   www.reidsorchardwinery.com   http://bit.ly/reidsfarmersmarket

Groff’s Content Farm:  Our butcher will have whole chickens, chicken breasts, chicken wings, various types of sausage, and free range hen and duck eggs.  www.groffscontentfarm.com

We’ll also have Clean Kraut or Stinking Rye Kraut. Turmeric Kraut will be back soon. And, we’ll also be trying out a new kraut cut!  Curious to hear any customer feedback.  Giardineira – It’s no longer at Sweetgreen, but it’s at our farmers market stands!  Our Italian vinegar-oil pickle with nine types of vegetables makes for a deliciously classic Giardiniera!  Use it for an easy pasta salad + other market vegetables.  Hot Hearts are back!  We’ve made enough kraut to build a supply of our crunchy, sour and slightly spicy hot cabbage hearts.  Great for a cheese board or adding to a salad!  Salsa So Verde Our fermented spicy, green salsa also returns. This is great for making guacamole — simply mix the salsa with ripe avocado, lime and salt 🙂   Kombucha Peach kombucha continues! We’re getting the peaches from Toigo Orchards in PA.  Dilly Beans are in our barrels. That means they’re coming to the markets in a few weeks!  If customers are missing their favorite kraut, they can order it from our online store for pickup at their farmers market.

Blueberry Cherry Pie  –  Let’s indulge in a recipe from the kitchen at Reid’s Orchard.  It’s summer, we all can appreciate a sweet treat. (And if you go visit Reid’s Winery, it would pair perfectly with some of their hard ciders!)

 

Ingredients:

Pastry for 9 inch double-crust pie

1/2 cup sugar

1/3 cup flour

1 tsp. grated lemon zest

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

2 cups blueberries

2 cups fresh sweet cherries- pitted and halved (or raspberries, pitted sour cherries or peaches)

2 tsp. lemon juice

2 tbsp. unsalted butter or margarine

 

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Prepare the pie pastry, line the pie pan with the bottom crust, using half the dough.

Combine the sugar, flour, lemon zest and cinnamon. Add the berries, cherries and lemon juice. Mix well. Turn the filling into the crust and dot with butter. Roll out the top crust and lay it on the filling. Trim off any excess dough, crimp the edges and prick top crust with the tines of a fork to vent.

Bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake 30 minutes more or until golden brown.

Thanks for shopping at the Mount Pleasant Farmers’ Market, but PLEASE SUPPORT our local full-time groceries during the rest of the week, especially Best World Supermarket.  It is a treasure to have a small, full service supermarket in MtP, but you must shop & support it.  It can only get better if you support it.  Don’t let Best World AND Don Juan’s get replaced.  Come talk to us at the Farmers’ Market table on the Plaza stage to learn more about the community’s efforts to support Best World.
