Tuesday Market Says Gigantic Beet Makes a Family Dance

Hey Tuesday Market Friends --

 

 

Bill with Gigantic BeetLast week, Bill Karparis from Green Meadow Farm brought a gigantic beet to market – the kind the river bottom soil of Northampton can grow in the heat of a perfect summer. Too big for anyone but the expert grandmother beet picklers and kvass makers (or a serious juicer) to do anything with. And then – Bill being Bill – he decides to give the beet to a sweet, young family for who knows what? Make borscht? Dye some clothes? Cut into many tiny pieces and throw at one another? Or maybe just to do a single, stellar beet-inspired dance on the plaza...  

Family Dancing with Beet

 All right: click here to see the vendors of the week. I've heard there will be tons of outrageously sweet watermelons and canteloupes and Red Haven peaches. And isn't it amazing that Bug Hill has had strawberries for the past few weeks? Go find out how she does that.

And lucky you! It's the Week of the Green Bean. We have two great recipes -- Breaded and Baked Green Bean Fries and Turkish-ish Green Beans and Lamb. And if you snagged one of our blank recipe cards last week, bring them on back so we can get inspired by your kitchen.

The Farewells will be playing -- they "mix acoustic pop, folk, rock and a pinch of electronica and poetry to form a vista of dark twang and sunny pop." And Tiffany Hilton will be bringing her beautiful and functional pottery to market. Popcorn will be popping. 

See you there for an August afternoon.
