Tuesday Market Eats Grapes Named Vanessa

Posted 8/20/2012 3:40pm by Tuesday Market.

Hey Tuesday Market Friends --

Apex Orchards will be bringing juicy peaches and delicious grapes named Vanessa to market this week. They will also have boxes of 2nds peaches but may run out of those before the end of market so come early if you want them. Here are all the vendors who will be at market this week.

The JMTP Quartet returns for their 3rd year in a row playing swinging and fun acoustic music on accordian, violin, guitar and bass. Katie Ray Arts will be bringing her beautiful glass and metal work. Last time she came, our son fell in love with her glass snails and had to bring one home. 

Our recipes, Fresh Salsa and Oven Roasted (Cherry) Tomatoes, celebrate the crimson and clover tomatoesawesome tomatoes that abound at market -- every possible color of heirloom and loads of cherries and solid reds, too. Try one of the green varieties of heirloom tomatoes -- you'll be surprised and delighted. What is an heirloom tomato and why do people talk about them so much? Heirloom tomatoes are varieties that have been in existence for at least 50 years and are non-hybridized, which to a farmer or gardener means that – if you want to save the seeds from them – you will more or less get the tomato that you're eating. In an eater's terms, heirlooms often taste more complex and better than regular red tomatoes but look a little less perfect (expect cracks, bumps and funny coloring). The tomatoes pictured here are from Crimson & Clover Farm.

If you're looking at all the tomatoes at market and thinking that you'd love to have some of them in the depth of winter, here are some ways to preserve the harvest. Vegetable vendors at the market are often selling boxes of 2nds tomatoes for totally reasonable prices that are perfect for preserving. If you'd like to reserve a box of 2nds from Town Farm, call or text Ben at 413 262 5489.

We will be selling raffle tickets for super yummy foods and products from Tuesday Market vendors again this week to benefit the SNAP/Food Stamps doubling program at the market. Prize #1 is an amazing basket of herbal remedies from Goldthread Organic Herb Farm and Apothecary to aid all sorts of common woes. Basket will come with a guide for how to use everything -- for a $1 ticket or 25 tickets for $20, you could win this $200 prize. Raffle prizes will be drawn at the Pie Contest and Eating Fest on September 11th. Come ask us all about these events or come  sign up to bake a pie at the purple market tent.

See you there for a beautiful late summer market!
