Tomato Arugula Pesto

(Mary Ann's favorite recipe)

Basil season will be at an end before we know it. Now is a great time to make pesto to freeze and enjoy this winter. Simply leave out the cheese and freeze in small bags or ice cube trays (for individual servings). Thaw when you need a taste of summer!

Market News

We welcome two new growers this week: Junior Michael (of Michael's Farm) is a 7th generation farmer. His farm is primarily dedicated to potatoes which he will be listing in the bulk section of the market. He is also pleased to be able to share his abundance of zucchini and yellow squash.
Bountiful Harvest Farms surprised us when they came on the market last week. They have been blessed this fall with delicious tomatoes (some heirloom), several varieties of tender green beans, summer squash, and sweet potatoes. They love growing them and hope you enjoy eating them! 

Ginger of Ginger's Produce has a huge, beautiful, chemical free patch of turnip greens. She also has October beans by the pound or in larger quantities to freeze / store. She has been picking them herself in the rain for the last 2 days. She said if she had waited any longer she would have had to have used a boat to get to them!
