Turning the Seasonal Corner with our FRESHFARM Market

Thursday August 27, 2015

This is one of the best times for our FRESHFARM Market as August turns to September. Jarrah Cernas, of our sole-source, organic supplier, Chicano Sol Farm, tells us it’s the time of year to take advantage of summer veggies and fruits, especially tomatoes. She notes that “melons and cantaloupes might even be finished by the end of this week’s market. Peppers and summer squashes will hang on all the way up through the first frost.” What’s coming into season? Jarrah says highlights like butternut and acorn squashes will soon be in, along with more apple varieties like the beloved Honeycrisp. Cabbages, broccoli, cauliflower as well as the “bunching greens” and lettuces will come back in full swing and another round of celery is coming from the garden shortly.  FRESHFARM shared this delicious Blue Duck Tavern summer watermelon and tomato gazpacho recipe this month – perfect for a hot afternoon.
