This Week's Newsletter

Posted 8/29/2016 10:36am by Grow Food Northampton.

Hi Tuesday market Friends-

Another beautiful market is in store for us this week! Plan a quick stroll through to grab your groceries or stay a while to have a meal and take it all in. All your favorites and more will be set up from 1:30-6:30. 

FoodPlay Productions from Hatfield will be on the stage with "ToBe Fit, the Juggling Nutrition Magician", about eating healthy and staying active, featuring circus arts, magic, music and audience participation. Kids will be invited to learn to juggle after the show!

Looking for an easy way to eat up all those good veggies you have at your fingertips? Roast them! Slice your veggies (pictured above- carrots, cauliflower, zucchini, beets and fennel), drizzle with oil, salt and pepper, bake at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes, checking on them every 10 minutes or so to stir them around a little. Use for a few days in salads, sandwiches, pasta, quiche...

We're excited to have Sweet Spoken and their bike bakery back with us this week. Hosta Hill ferments and Beaumont's Berries jam will also be joining the regulars this week.

Hi Tuesday Market Friends!

It rained! And the whole Valley sighed in relief! Plan a stop to the market this week to high-five your hardworking farmers and buy some ingredients for a lovely farmers' market dinner. Tuesday night's forecast looks perfect for cooking! Looking for ideas? A simple way to find new recipes and techniques is to ask the person selling your ingredients to you! Feel free to also stop by the purple market tent to chat recipes!

Apples arrive at the market this week! Park Hill Orchard will have the first of their summer apples, called Pristine-disease resistant, crisp, sweet and tart with tropical notes. They'll also have berries. Grab some fruit and a cider slushie too!

Abundance Farm will be setting up a children's activity this week. Stop by to let the little ones have some fun and learn about their work to increase food security. 

Hosta Hill, Free Ramblin' Kids and True North Granola will all be with us this week.

We will have music from Aaron Cooper and Rafe Wolman

Red Fire Farm will be sampling some varieties of watermelon. A slice of watermelon on a beautiful summer day, what more could you ask for? Find them in the center of the market.

Hi Tuesday Market Friends! 
 
I hope you've been staying cool during these hot summer days! The sky has been giving us lots of entertainment...rainbows and lightning shows. We're all hoping for some much needed rain from the sky later today. The crew at Old Friends Farm is trying some alternative methods!

This week we will have everything on your list, plus some surprises to be sure. In addition to our regular vendors, we will welcome Botanica Bitters and Crooked Stick Pops. A perfect day for a popsicle at market and some bitters to bring home for a refreshing cool drink! Apex Orchard will also be making a special visit to market this week with blueberries! 

Anchor Goods from Pieropan Tree Farm from Ashfield will be bringing their handmade cooking utensils and other everyday items to market. Beautiful and useful.
 
Eric Lee will be returning to play music for us this week. Check out a taste here:
 
 
Hannah Jacobson-Hardy of Sweet Birch Herbals is proud to announce that Full Moon Ghee will be available in local stores by August! To get the best price for a jar, come by the market where you can have a taste and learn about the benefits of cooking with ghee. Full Moon Ghee is made in small batches every month during the full moon from local High Lawn Farm butter. Sweet Birch is at the market every Tuesday.

Hello Tuesday Market Friends! 
 
How sweet was the much-needed rain over the weekend? I know our farmers are rejoicing and their plants are thankful! 
 
We are happy to welcome Park Hill Orchard back to the market this week for the remainder of the season. This week they will be bringing blueberries and raspberries and later in the season, apples. And of course, they will also have cider slushies featuring last season's tremendous apple cider!
 
We will have music by T-Bone and His Uke, a ukulele and stand-up base duo, between 3:30 and 6 this week. 
 
Beets and Barley owner, Molly, shared a frittata recipe that she makes for herself each week with almost all ingredients found at the Tuesday Market! Get the details here, and spend a minute browsing the many delicious recipes on our website.

Happy 4th of July, Tuesday Market Friends!
 
I hope your picnics and barbecues are full of local food! This is the time of year where we are truly spoiled! Berries for your shortcake, tomato slices on your burger, lettuces for every taste, cucumbers (and so much more!) to pickle, cabbages for slaw...I could go on!
 
(photo by Red Fire Farm)
 
This week we will have music by Acoustic Breezes. Check out a preview here
 
We will also have a visit from Circus Smirkus from 3-5pm. They will bring some extra juggling props and hula hoops for kids to try and will be selling tickets to the circus. You will be able to spin our spinning wheel for a chance to win tickets too!
 
 
 
 
Old Friends Farm is selling ginger plants so that you can have the experience of growing your own ginger! I planted one in a pot on my deck last summer. It was a nice looking plant all summer and then very fun for my children and I to dig up the ginger root in the fall! We made tea with the greens, sautéed them in a stir fry and kept the roots in the freezer to use all winter.

Hi Tuesday Market Friends-

This week marks our 10th Tuesday Market of 2016. It certainly feels like we're in full swing! Check out this great video shot two weeks ago by East Longmeadow Community Access TV, it's a great taste of what you'll find at market tomorrow:

We will have a new addition tomorrow. Julie from Crooked Stick Pops will be peddling her "Pop-Cycle" over from Easthampton with fresh fruit popsicles!

Adam Zucker will be on stage performing for us between 3:30 and 5:30. He plays originals and covers in genres like reggae, pop, rock, r&b, and blues. 

The sun has sure been spoiling us lately (for better or worse for our farmers!). Above is a pretty shot of elecampane growing strong at Sawmill Herb Farm in Florence. They harvest the root in the fall, it has medicinal properties that are helpful for respiratory issues. I had the pleasure of visiting Sawmill and getting a tour of their fields last week. It was a treat to see where they grow all of their medicinal and culinary plants. 

A tower of carrots at Old Friend Farm!
