Hello everyone

Welcome to a summer market in full August mode.

We've got more tomatoes-and more kinds-than I can count. Fresh crunchy corn, cukes and melons, berries, peaches, greens and herbs galore.

This is a great time to cruise your cookbooks or wander Google for summer recipes to highlight your purchases. Try something new-ground cherries from New Roots perhaps, to treat your taste buds and slip into a whole range of new ideas.

Many of our vendors have farm stands, or are part of local festivals-ask them what;s "going on in their neck of the woods". This is a fine time to be right here-enjoy every moment.

and, as always, I welcome your comments, ideas, suggestions. Send them along to

Bon Appetit
P erfume your pantry, exhilarate
your taste buds, with some perfect peaches at Pleasant Pond Orchard
From our vendors

At Old Narrow Gauge , Amy is offering new preserves weekly. Try the plum or elderflower jam, the cherry jelly or that spicy jar of fiddleheads.

At Pleasant Pond Orchard , Larry has a bonanza of peaches, maybe a few plums. A few more blueberries, and a batch of blackberries expected this week. Definitely get there early.

Mindful Gardens has an alluring group of everlasting wreaths in hazy shades of purple to melt your heart and stage whisper welcome. And all those lovely baskets...
Decisions can be tough: choosing steaks at Kelley Brothers

Caitlin at Appleton is brimming with new ideas. Check out the of many favorites now here into buttons for ease of use and storage. Try her 4 pack of chipotle, herb, lime pepper and

Beryl's fruit pies are wildly popular in summer; but don't forget her staples-special in themselves. Try the Rugelach, rich & beguiling with almonds, cinnamon sugar and flaky pastry. Try it with a cup of rich organic coffee from Big Barn for a perfect morning...

If outdoor cooking is your joy, go talk to Tammy at Kelley Brothers about her beef-she offers steaks in 10 varieties, and other grill loving cuts as well.
Summer squash from Tarbox chunk up nicely with fresh herbs for pasta
At Tarbox , pick up some very fine eggplants to grill or roast into creamy goodness-venture into your Mediterranean rim or North African cookbook, or one from Greece, or India, to find recipes that make the most of this versatile beauty. Their lush herbs are great complements to many summer dishes.

Hootenanny has some fabulously not too doughy bagels, excellent bialys-definitely responsible for many flashbacks to Brooklyn, Staten Island, and environs. But their whole wheat croissants are equally authentic-and those chocolate ones-ooh la la. (Corny yes, but your mouth does not care)

At Mainely Poultry, the recent barn fire is responsible for some deficits. They are out of eggs, and no duck parts for the foreseeable future. Rosemarie may still have ground duck , worth a try for good flavor & versatility.
Try these nice watermelons from Popps in a salad with some bright and lively greens

Welcome back Micro Mainea. Judy has some happy new groups of lovely micro greens to share-it's amazing how full of flavor these little ones are.

Ready for the knife-tomatillos aspiring to salsa verde fame are to be had at Popps, where Helen also offers yellow and greens skinned watermelons, nicely sized.

Alchimia's small cakes add a festive note to any meal-buy 2, so you can offer choices! Light and full of flavor, they are satisfiers of the soul.
