Market Updates
-----------------
Its going to be a warm Saturday this weekend and a great time to visit the Hollywood Farmers Market to enjoy the fruits of the local harvest. The market is in full swing and as we roll into August, the summer sun is sweetening up fruit on the vines. At the market you can fill your baskets with everything you need for a delicious week!

Fresh up is sweet corn. Pop it on the grill, or in a pot of boiling water and slather with your favorite toppings. Heck, some corn varieties are so tender and sweet people just eat them raw. No matter how you like to prepare it, corn is a delicious treat and a favorite of many.
And my, oh, my, look at these beautiful red slicing tomatoes. They carry a punch of sweetness and acidity that truly mark the flavor of summertime. Fortunately they can go with just about any meal so its time to load up! And it is certainly salsa season folks. Weather your special recipe is with roasted corn, tomatoes or peaches, the ingredients will be waiting for you with fresh cilantro.
We have NOBULL Specialty Foods, 503 Distilling, and Westward Whiskey joining us this week. And after a week away Buns on the Run returns.

There is so much to see and celebrate. Come on down to the market this Saturday and enjoy a delicious bite to eat, live music, and fill your baskets. We look forward to seeing you at there!

Featured Products
August 3, 2019
Wild Huckleberries
Nature's Wild Harvest
It's time to walk on the "wild side" of the vaccinium genus (the same as blueberries) and toss some huckleberries into your pancakes or muffins! Their tart-but-sweet flavor is concentrated in their skins, and they're bursting with antioxidants. 

Jewel Pluots
Maryhill Orchards
Pluots are hybrid stone fruits created by naturally crossing a plum with an apricot. For many of us, they bring the best of both worlds, combining the firm skin and juiciness of a plum with the floral complex flavor of an apricot. Jewels are an attractive and delicious variety, with bright red skin covering sweet yellow flesh.

Fig Walnut Bread
Tabor Bread
This delicious sweetbread is made with 100% whole-grain freshly-milled durum wheat flour, naturally fermented, stuffed with figs and walnuts, and swirled with cinnamon, sugar and butter. Yum!
