Oyster Mushrooms!

Have you met our newest vendor, the Five Funghis?  If you come to the market, as I do, late in the day you may not have met them yet as they sell out fast.  And having had their oyster mushrooms, I can sure see why. Thought I’d share a recipe using them to inspire you, although we thought ours just sauteed in butter were pretty tasty!

Tomorrow is opening day at the Phoenix Hill Farmer’s Market for 2011. (Many thanks to some of our farmers and vendors who have continued setting up through much of the winter.)

What better way to finally welcome spring than to meet your neighbors at the market?

Our Spring Festival will be May 24.

Hope to see you tomorrow!

Recipes to spark your creativity

Toad in a Pattypan Hole by A Veggie Venture

One of our market managers scoped out this recipe using the pattypan squash that is so plentiful right now. Looks pretty good!

And for the garlic lovers, doesn’t this sound good?!

And if you’re looking for something completely different to try with the great peaches you get at the market, how about this?

I”m hoping to give this a try this weekend with the corn I get tomorrow.

How about this tomato peach salsa?

And how about this tart?!

And check this out! When I think of all the work I have gone to to peel and prepare peaches for the freezer and THIS could be done?! Totally trying this tomorrow.
