September 11, 2012 Old Rochester Farmers' Market

Week 15 of the Old Rochester Farmers' Market brings you a plethora of nutritious, delicious and fresh local foods.  There will be a wide variety of produce--vegetables abound.  Corn, potatoes, tomatoes, onions, cucumbers, peppers...whether you are making salsa or sauce, grilling or stir-frying all the essential ingredients you need will be there.  We look forward to seeing you at the market.

Apples are in at Cervelli Farm.  Scott will have crates of apples for you to choose from.  Applesauce, apple pie, apple crumble, apple bread--the possibilities are endless.  Making a batch of delicious applesauce and then freezing or canning it will ensure that you have some of that wonderful sweetness this winter.  This week, Scott will have available tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, summer squash, zucchini, cucumbers, and eggplant.

Value Added Foods

Al's Backwood's Berrie Co., Plymouth, MA
Each week it is a new surprise over at Al's tent.  Al delights in creating new and visually appealing jams and jellies.  The apple pie, blueberry rhubarb and jalepeno pepper have been some of the favorites this season.  Do not be fooled into thinking these jams are only for toast--we've used them for fish, fruit spreads for pancakes or french toast, and the classic pb&j.  Each week Al also has raw, local honey, too.

Liv a Little, Rochester, MA
Chocolate Nachos made fresh in Rochester.  Varieties include Sunflower Seed, Toffee and Pecan.  Sarah's chocolate nachos are not your average dessert.
