Market News

Despite how hard it’s fallen at times, and the dreary Saturday at AthFest, I’m really enjoying all this rain we’ve been getting. It’s been keeping the heat at bay, and getting all this water into the ground now will pay dividends later for sure. It has had its downsides with the growers, though. The blueberry bushes have been taking a beating, and it seems as many berries have been knocked to the ground as have been harvested. Garlic, onions, and potatoes are starting to come out of the ground and all three do much better with a period of dry air to cure, and that’s been in short supply. Still, overall the good outweighs the bad, and we’ll be glad later for the wet start to the year.

Thank you so much for your support of Athens Locally Grown, all of our growers, local food, and our rights to eat it. You all are part of what makes Athens such a great area in which to live. We’ll see you on Thursday at Ben’s Bikes at the corner of Pope and Broad Streets from 4:30 to 8pm!

Recipes

Crunchy Asian Slaw with Ginger-Tahini Dressing

A great slaw with a light, refreshing twist

Serves 4
For the Ginger-Tahini Dressing:

3 scallions, white and light green parts only, minced
1/4 cup low sodium tamari or soy sauce
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons tahini
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
1 1/2 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

For the salad:

2 cups shredded red cabbage
1/2 cup shredded napa cabbage
2 carrots, coarsely grated
1 medium-sized beet, coarsely grated
1 cup cilantro, finely chopped
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and cut into thin slivers
1 cup cooked, shelled edamame
1/2 cup peanuts
1/2 cup raisins
2 tablespoons sesame seeds

Prepare the dressing by whisking all of the ingredients together until smooth and well-combined. This works best with an immersion blender but a hand whisk is fine too. Taste the dressing and adjust seasonings if needed.

Place the red cabbage, Napa cabbage, carrots, beets, edemame, cilantro and jalapeño in a large bowl. Stir to combine. Pour the dressing over the cabbage mixture and toss until everything is evenly coated. Add the peanuts, raisins, and sesame seeds. Serve chilled or at room temperature.

Cumberland, TN:  CSFM Sunday June 25, 2017


Hello from Cumberland Sustainable Farmers’ Market. The market is now open for this week’s orders.

Dawson Local Harvest:  This Week's Market Highlights


Dawson Local Harvest for June 30th

This Week’s Market Highlights

HI EVERYBODY!

Hope you’ve been enjoying the unusually cool temperatures. We all know this can’t last! Oh well, on to the News:

CULTURAL TRADITIONS has added new products. First up, Awesome Sauce, a thick, somewhat chunky, spicy Kimchi derivative that is great on rice, meat and eggs or as a soup base. Next, Tanya’s Cucumber Kimchi uses cucumbers instead of cabbage and radishes. Both of her Kinchis feature organic scallions, garlic, apples and more. Finally, how about Kraut Kvass, aka Kraut Juice using cabbage and apples instead of beets as a base. Hey, there’s a whole world of new taste experiences out there. Open your palette to new experiences with CULTURAL TRADITIONS.

DON’T FORGET! BRADLEY’S has Bees, and that means local Wildflower Honey! It not only tastes great but helps inoculate you and yours with local allergens to reduce hay fever, congestion and allergies. And it’s a healthier alternative to sugar. In The Market’s Honey section.

CLUTEN-FREE CAN BE DELICIOUS! We are so lucky to have MY DAILY BREAD as our baker. They do great Gluten-Free.
Suggestions: Glorious Morning Muffins (apples, carrots, coconut and walnuts), Brownies and Cheesecake Brownies. They have more at different times of the year as well as lots of Organics, and just a lot of scrumptious Breads, Cookies, Muffins, and Desserts. In the Baked Goods section.

THE MARKET IS NOW OPEN!

REMEMBER! You can now order until Tuesday night at 9 pm. Pick up your order at Leilani’s Gardens Friday afternoons from 4 to 6 pm.

You’ll find the DAWSON LOCAL HARVEST at http://dawsonville.locallygrown.net

We thank you for your interest and support of our efforts to bring you the healthiest, the freshest and the most delicious locally-produced foods possible! We guarantee your satisfaction with all products in the DAWSON LOCAL HARVEST.

Have a happy and healthy week!
