Happy Wednesday, Durham!
It’s almost time for our favorite midweek event, so you know where to find us today from 3-6pm – down at Durham Central Park under the pavilion! We’ll have lawn games, picnic tables, and kids activities waiting for you. We hope the week has been kind to you and that those of you who are out of school for the season have been enjoying the sunshine and all the natural beauty that ‘summer’ in Durham provides. If you’re looking for an afternoon activity, we hope you’ll stop by the market to stock up on all your midweek groceries and hang out with some great folks.
We are very excited that Wild Scallions Farm is bringing some delicious berries with them this week, in addition to their seasonal flower bouquets, and veggies. Hurtgen Meadows still has some plants starts, so if you’ve been debating whether to get in on the veggie garden action this season, now is the time to get them while you can! Bull City Farm will be back in their usual spot with lots of pasture-raised meat and eggs available. Their turkey sausage is amazing. We’re also really excited that Celebrity Dairy will be back again this week with goat cheese spreads, chevre, and a variety gelato flavors!
This week, we have a bee-ry special visiter! A whole hive of them actually! We are so excited to have the Durham County Beekeepers Association are join us this week to teach us all about bees and pollinators! And they’re bringing a demonstration hive with them! Stop by the Sprouts Club table from 3-6pm for honey tastings, bee activities, and to learn all about these life sustaining insects. And don’t forget to that all kids who participate in the Sprouts Club activity get $5 to spend at market!
This Week’s Recipe: Panzanella with Mozzarella and Herbs
Check out this week’s recipe HERE in our newsletter! This recipe is perfect if you love picking up fresh bread and those beautiful new tomatoes at market, but may have a hard time eating them up before they get a little too hard or ripe. The panzanella provides a nice crouton like crunch in your salad, and the juicy tomatoes bring all the flavors together for a tasty and healthy meal. It includes cucumbers and herbs, and you can customize it with your favorite seasonal veggies. You can find all almost all of the ingredients at market, and we’ve included in the recipes notes which vendor tables you can find them at. Enjoy!
Enjoy live music by local singer-songwriter, Remona Jeannine!
