This Week's Newsletter

Posted 7/25/2016 11:44am by Grow Food Northampton.
Hi Tuesday Market Friends! 
 
I hope you've been staying cool during these hot summer days! The sky has been giving us lots of entertainment...rainbows and lightning shows. We're all hoping for some much needed rain from the sky later today. The crew at Old Friends Farm is trying some alternative methods!

This week we will have everything on your list, plus some surprises to be sure. In addition to our regular vendors, we will welcome Botanica Bitters and Crooked Stick Pops. A perfect day for a popsicle at market and some bitters to bring home for a refreshing cool drink! Apex Orchard will also be making a special visit to market this week with blueberries! 

Anchor Goods from Pieropan Tree Farm from Ashfield will be bringing their handmade cooking utensils and other everyday items to market. Beautiful and useful.
 
Eric Lee will be returning to play music for us this week. Check out a taste here:
 
 
Hannah Jacobson-Hardy of Sweet Birch Herbals is proud to announce that Full Moon Ghee will be available in local stores by August! To get the best price for a jar, come by the market where you can have a taste and learn about the benefits of cooking with ghee. Full Moon Ghee is made in small batches every month during the full moon from local High Lawn Farm butter. Sweet Birch is at the market every Tuesday. 
 
 
Help us to spread the word about the SNAP and Save Program which is allowing us to match $10 in SNAP money each week. That means that SNAP customers get $20 for a $10 withdrawal of SNAP benefits each week at the market (Thank you CISA and Healthy Hampshire!). SNAP tokens can be used for anything SNAP eligible, including meat, fruits, vegetables, honey, maple, cheese, bread, granola and plant starts.  Stop by the purple market tent to learn more.

Hello Tuesday Market Friends! 
 
How sweet was the much-needed rain over the weekend? I know our farmers are rejoicing and their plants are thankful! 
 
We are happy to welcome Park Hill Orchard back to the market this week for the remainder of the season. This week they will be bringing blueberries and raspberries and later in the season, apples. And of course, they will also have cider slushies featuring last season's tremendous apple cider!
 
We will have music by T-Bone and His Uke, a ukulele and stand-up base duo, between 3:30 and 6 this week. 
 
Beets and Barley owner, Molly, shared a frittata recipe that she makes for herself each week with almost all ingredients found at the Tuesday Market! Get the details here, and spend a minute browsing the many delicious recipes on our website.

Happy 4th of July, Tuesday Market Friends!
 
I hope your picnics and barbecues are full of local food! This is the time of year where we are truly spoiled! Berries for your shortcake, tomato slices on your burger, lettuces for every taste, cucumbers (and so much more!) to pickle, cabbages for slaw...I could go on!

This week we will have music by Acoustic Breezes. Check out a preview here
 
We will also have a visit from Circus Smirkus from 3-5pm. They will bring some extra juggling props and hula hoops for kids to try and will be selling tickets to the circus. You will be able to spin our spinning wheel for a chance to win tickets too!
 
 
 
 
Old Friends Farm is selling ginger plants so that you can have the experience of growing your own ginger! I planted one in a pot on my deck last summer. It was a nice looking plant all summer and then very fun for my children and I to dig up the ginger root in the fall! We made tea with the greens, sautéed them in a stir fry and kept the roots in the freezer to use all winter. 
 
 
Leyden Glen Lamb has a tested-and-approved burger recipe on their blog for your summer meal planning. Browse their site for more recipes and inspiration and visit their spot at market each week for more recipes and ideas.

Hi Tuesday Market Friends-

This week marks our 10th Tuesday Market of 2016. It certainly feels like we're in full swing! Check out this great video shot two weeks ago by East Longmeadow Community Access TV, it's a great taste of what you'll find at market tomorrow:

We will have a new addition tomorrow. Julie from Crooked Stick Pops will be peddling her "Pop-Cycle" over from Easthampton with fresh fruit popsicles!

Adam Zucker will be on stage performing for us between 3:30 and 5:30. He plays originals and covers in genres like reggae, pop, rock, r&b, and blues. 

The sun has sure been spoiling us lately (for better or worse for our farmers!). Above is a pretty shot of elecampane growing strong at Sawmill Herb Farm in Florence. They harvest the root in the fall, it has medicinal properties that are helpful for respiratory issues. I had the pleasure of visiting Sawmill and getting a tour of their fields last week. It was a treat to see where they grow all of their medicinal and culinary plants. 

A tower of carrots at Old Friend Farm!
