It is back to school, and our children need great lunches to bring to school with them. Come join us for another gorgeous summer afternoon at the Old Rochester Farmers' Market. Bring along your re-usable shopping bag...you will need it! There is such a wonderful bounty available from our local farmers, it would be very hard to walk away without a bag or two of gorgeous produce for you and yours to enjoy.

Farms:

Lucky Field Organi...cs Farm (Rochester) will once again bring along a large variety of organically grown produce. If you are looking for heirloom varieties or maybe even a vegetable you have never heard of before, this is the tent to be at. Lucky Field Organics is proud to offer an organic and sustainable choice to the Old Rochester FM customers. Don't forget to ask Weston what the special of the week is at this week's market.

Engelnook Farm (Rochester) is a rescue farm, home to llamas, horses, ponies, chickens, and more. They have been bringing to the market two wonderful llamas--children have really been enjoying the opportunity to get up close to these friendly llamas. If you come to the market with a dog, please approach the llamas slowly and gently, as dogs tend to spook these otherwise peaceful creatures. Engelnook has quite the variety to offer market-goers. They have eggs, Great Hill Blue Cheese, summer squash, peppers, zucchini, a few varieties of eggplant (even white eggplant), HOT peppers, and cucumbers to name just some of what you can find at this table. Engelnook Farm practices pesticide-free farming.

Tripp Farm (Westport), Walter brings along conventionally grown corn, squash, cucumbers, beets, potatoes, tomatoes, string beans, and watermelon. For some of the best values at the market, stop by Tripp Farm and see what you can find. Walter will be sure glad to help you out.

Cervelli Farm (Rochester) has been offering a wide variety of fresh, conventionally grown produce every week. This farm, started in 1965, has been a local favorite for years. Offering their locally famous corn to market customers, they also bring along fresh cut flowers for your table and the vegetables you need to make a delicious meal to put on your table as well.

Bakers:

Great Cape Baking Company (Marston Mills) has the amazing ability to bake the most delectable breads. Quick breads, brown breads, sandwich bread--the varieties are endless. Always fresh, always yummy. They also offer you the availability of ordering gluten free baked goods to pick up at next week's market. Stop by this tent to be amazed at how many varieties of bread one baker can conjure.

The Artisan Kitchen (Rochester) serves up super quiches in a few varieties. A great quick meal, these quiches are great for a busy summer day. Also available are their breads, granola, granola bars, dessert treats, and muffins. A sure crowd pleaser.

Prepared Items:

Dave's Cape Cod Smokehouse (Harwich) just might be the best the Cape has to offer in smoked meat and fish. They have perfected the art of hickory smoking ribs. If you haven't checked out the YouTube video posted on the ORFM fb page, please do. Dave shares his passion for providing you with fantastic food. Each week they bring along fish pates and spreads as well. They are so good, that I've seen numerous children gobbling up the samples. If you struggle to get your children to eat their fish, Dave's smoked fish or pates are a fantastic option for you.

Al's Backwood's Berrie Co. (Plymouth) joined the market a month ago, and everyone has been glad they have. Delighted with how delicious their jams are, Al's has earned repeat customers from the Old Rochester Farmers' Market shoppers. Go on and stop by this table, they will offer you a sample to try--you will be happy you did. You might even surprise yourself by how many jars of jam you find in your bag when you get home.

Mamma Stella's Cape Cod Seasoning has put in a bottle a seasoning mixture that makes everything from vegetables to steak taste great. Especially good for a quick seasoning for grilled foods, Mamma Stella's seasoning is a must try. Stop by their table and they will offer you some fresh cut veggies with Mamma Stella's on it and roasted sunflower seeds that have been roasted with the seasoning. Good stuff!

If you are hungry while shopping, Franky's Franks (Plymouth) is at the market every week with their organic hot dogs. With hot dog stylings like The New Yorker (saurkraut, onions & mustard), Sweet & Spicy (sweet chili pepper sauce w/ onion, mustard & coleslaw), and Coney Con Chili (meat chili, mustard, onions & shredded cheddar) you are sure to find one that piques your interest. Most of their condiments are made with farm fresh, natural and organic ingredients from local farmers and producers. I look forward to enjoying one this Tuesday. Franky's Franks now offers homemade Clam Chowder. It is amazingly good. He is now getting requests for pints!

For the special Dog in your life:

Go Fetch! Treats has homemade dog treats for your "best friend." Made with fresh vegetables, farm fresh eggs, and more these treats are a healthy option for your doggie. If you forgot a re-usable shopping bag, Michelle has durable burlap re-usable shopping bags for sale.

See you at the market!
