Market Updates
-----------------
Once again, there is simply so much to look forward to this Saturday at the farmers market. Salsa season is upon us, and it makes the perfect snack on a summer day when you don't want to heat up the kitchen. Find the freshest, local ingredients for your favorite recipes like classic pico de gallo and tomatillo salsa, or more adventurous styles with peach, or strawberry.

Countless varieties of fruit can be found this Saturday. Fresh wild huckleberries are treasures of the season; don't miss out, as they may only be around for another week or so. Hami muskmelons, varied cantaloupe and watermelon will delight the taste buds. Excitingly, even more varieties of apples are arriving in this week. Find Zestar, Dandee Red, Gravenstein, Pristine, and Dolgo crab apples at Kiyokawa Family Orchards and even more at ProFarm Orchards, Maryhill Fruit Company and Pablo Munoz Farms. And that's just scratching the surface of the abundance offered at the farmers market this weekend!

On your way out, make sure to pick up your favorite to-go breakfast or lunch items whether it be sambusas, breakfast burritos, tamales, crepes, noodle soups or pastries.
Back this week: Alleamin, Ken and June's Hazelnuts, No Mess Chef, and Sacred Summit Herbal Elixirs and Chocolate.

Recipe of the Week: Summer Vegetable Gratin
-------------
INGREDIENTS

For the topping:
1/4 cup fresh breadcrumbs
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh parsley leaves
2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh thyme leaves

For the gratin:
2 medium zucchini squash (about 1 1/2 inches in diameter)
2 medium yellow zucchini (about 1 1/2 inches in diameter)
3 to 4 plum or Roma tomatoes
1/4 cup olive oil, divided
1 1/4 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 small onion, thinly sliced
1/2 medium orange bell pepper, halved and thinly sliced
3 cloves garlic, minced

INSTRUCTIONS

Arrange a rack in the middle of the oven and heat to 375°F. Lightly coat an 8x8-inch baking dish with oil; set aside.

Make the topping:
Place all the ingredients in a small bowl and mix until combined; set aside.

Make the gratin:
Use a mandoline or a very sharp knife to cut the zucchini, yellow squash, and tomatoes crosswise into 1/4-inch rounds. Place in a large bowl, add 2 tablespoons of the oil, 1 teaspoon of the salt, and the pepper. Toss to combine; set aside.

Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons oil in a large frying pan over medium heat until shimmering. Add the onions, bell pepper, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are tender and lightly browned, 10 to 12 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute more.

Transfer the onion mixture to the baking dish and spread into an even layer. Place the zucchini, squash, and tomato slices on the onions, arranging them on their sides and alternating the slices as you go. Sprinkle the breadcrumb mixture over the top. Cover tightly with aluminum foil.

Bake for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake until the vegetables are tender and the edges and topping are browned, 15 to 20 minutes more.

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. "Wild Bill" Cole of Nature's Wild Harvest says that this is a low year for huckleberry supply due to the spring rains, so get them while they last - huckleberry season could be over in a couple weeks.

100% Einkorn Bread
Tabor Bread
Einkorn is said to be the most ancient wheat known to mankind. High in nutrients, it also has a lower gluten content than other wheat flours, so while not suitable for those with severe allergies, some with mild gluten sensitivities find that they can eat it. Tabor Bread's 100% einkorn bread (like all their breads) is made from their own whole-meal freshly milled flour and long-fermented to create superb flavors.

Chorizo
Sweet Briar Farms
Sweet Briar Farms has chorizo sausages, which owner Cooper describes as "bratwurst with a bite!" You can grill them up and eat them on a bun or cut them up and mix them with your eggs.
