Dothan,Alabama:  A Little Early This Week . . .


Dothan’s SUSTAINABLE Market is now Open

This and That

Summer is upon us and I am so excited! School’s out now, wedding season has started and wholesome fresh vegetables ABOUND. Last night I made the Mr. one of our all time favorite dishes – new potatoes in buttery white sauce with English peas. He was a happy, HAPPY man. The next time I see 2C Farms offering their red potatoes I’ll be sure to share the recipe. And if you’re a seat of the pants cook like I am and have a few taters you’ve not used yet, it’s basically boiled potatoes, white sauce, and frozen green peas.


That being said, be sure to read the next section about what is and is not available on the market this week. Product selections are always expanding as does our vendor base.

SANDSPUR FARMS – "I’m SO excited about our newest product!

Our CSA boxes are BACK! Plus, we’re also bringing back the meat grab bags. These bags are an assortment of cuts. Keep reading to see our newest product!

Our CSA BOX has a little of everything that is ready to harvest. Squash, zucchini, potatoes, tomatoes, bell peppers, hot peppers and the list goes on and on. Hopefully, we will have blueberries ready this week! Some things aren’t posted for individual sale because of limited supply but it will be in these boxes. *Also, the box Includes 1 dozen farm fresh eggs, and your choice of 1 meat cut, can be beef or or pork. Just list in comment section which cut.(Except whole hams or ribeye steaks)

Our newest product is our FEED YOUR FAMILY BOX. We’ve designed this box to help cut some of your time standing in line at the grocery store. This box will contain 5 types of vegetables, one for each night of the week, 1 dozen eggs, plus 5 cuts of meat for the week. Serving size is based on a family of four to five. Because there’s a menu for each dinner using what’s in your box, it will also save you time when meal planning. All you will need is a few small items to make the meals complete. You will be able to tell all of your friends that your farmer sells you meat, veggies, eggs and even helps with meal planning for your family. Talk about knowing your farmer! ”

Farm to Table Recipes

Raw Zucchini Ribbon Salad with Olives and Mint
”Zucchini has taken up permanent residence at my house for the next few months; it happens every summer. Those who grow zucchini in their gardens know that come summer they’ll have a glut of this prolific crop. This cook will enthusiastically grab them up at the market as well for delicious dishes like this”


from http://gourmandeinthekitchen.com


Ingredients
3 Tablespoons/45ml olive oil
2 Tablespoons/30ml of freshly squeezed lemon juice (about half a lemon)
1/2 teaspoon finely grated fresh lemon zest
2 pounds medium zucchini (about 5-6)
¼ cup chopped fresh mint
1/4 cup chopped black olives
2 oz/57g Mixed greens like baby spinach, and baby kale
4 oz/113g of goat cheese
¼ cup/ 30g of lightly toasted pine nuts
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Instructions
1. In a large bowl, whisk the olive oil, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
2. Trim the ends of the zucchini. With a vegetable peeler, shave lengthwise into long, wide strips about 1/16 inch thick. When you get to the center of the zucchini, turn it over and slice from the other side until you get to the center again.
3. Put the zucchini ribbons in the large bowl, add the chopped mint, olives and greens, toss gently with vinaigrette to lightly coat.
4. Top with crumbled goat cheese and toasted pine nuts. Serve immediately.
