Cooking Demo 
It’s been way too long since we’ve seen Chef Charlotte Galley at the Baltimore Farmers' Market & Bazaar!

Chef Galley has been teaching at the Baltimore Chef Shop in Hampden and is bringing the teaching kitchen to the market. She’ll be inspiring everyone to cook the bounties from our farms on Sunday, August 21 at 9am.                                                 
Pick of the Market Recipe
By Sandy Lawler, chef and manager of the Baltimore Farmers' Market & Bazaar

Summer Slaw!
Slaws need to sit for at least an hour before serving, and the longer the better… the following recipe will keep for a week in the fridge!

1 Small head of Cabbage
1-2 Kohlrabi
1 small red onion
1-2 fennel bulbs
1-2 carrots

In a large bowl, whisk together equal amounts (start with ¼ cup each):
                  sugar or honey
                  white vinegar
                  whole grain mustard

Whisk in salt and pepper to taste.

Thinly shred all the vegetables and toss in the dressing bowl. I like using tongs to move the veggies from the bottom of the bowls to the top. As the veggies absorb the dressing, they will wilt and compact, so don’t worry if you think there’s too much veg! Try other vegetables like Daikon radishes, assorted cabbages, Brussel Sprouts, beets, etc.. Also, try thinly slicing and sautéing your Kohlrabi greens with some garlic and ginger!  
Master Gardeners
Now is the time to start thinking about fall flowers.

Master Gardeners will be at the market throughout  August so be sure to stop by their tent with your gardening questions!
