At the Market This Week
Don't want to cook? Come to the Morris Plains Farmers Market and get a week's worth of easy meals.  

Don't want to heat up the kitchen? Here's how to cook corn on the cob in the microwave. Wet a paper towel and wring it out. Wrap the husked ear of corn in the moist towel and place on dinner plate. Cook in the microwave for five minutes. Carefully remove the paper towel, and enjoy! 

You can buy fresh Amish butter at Ort Farms. Ort Farms now has their own Jersey Corn. And, if you've been waiting for cantaloupe and peaches, Ort Farms has those also. 

Pick up ready to heat and eat delicious meals from Paolo's Kitchen. Try Karen's vegetable pot pie for a change! How about fresh mozzarella and tomato - plain or on any of the fresh bread from Hoboken Farms. Ready to eat pierogies and kielbasa for the grill. Round it all out with pickles & olives. 

Our specials this week are Burning Love Organics and Eileen Bodnar. See you on Saturday morning!
