What to expect at the July 28, 2016 market

Nothing says summer like yellow sunflowers, and corn. And heat.  The heat continues, but we are cool as cucumbers at our harbor market, enjoying sea-breezes and shade trees on Marine Park. Customer parking is provided in the lots adjacent to the park, and there’s a sturdy wooden rack for bikes. If you’re buying meat, cheese, or eggs, do remember to bring a cooler! Activities […]

Summer Squash at Falmouth Farmers Market July 2016

It will be hot this week. Just in time for the heat-wave, here come Uncle Sam’s American Ices (on a cooler-equipped red bike, a sort of reverse-tricycle.) The icy treats come in flavors like watermelon, and refreshing ginger, and taste like summer. Tony Melli says he can’t keep up with demand for Long Lane Farm’s goat cheese. He brought twice the usual amount last […]

This week, look for Carrie Richter’s new strawberry-rhubarb jam. Carrie grew the rhubarb at Peachtree Circle Farm in Sipewissett.  Pariah Dog Farm grew the strawberries, just a few miles away in Teaticket. “Neighbor farmers helping one another,” said Carrie, as if to say, “just as it should be.” Buy the jam, and you’ll be supporting two hard-working Falmouth Farms – deliciously. It’s scape season […]

Our local strawberry season lasts only a few weeks, so come to the market next week and make the most of them. Strawberries this good deserve a little space in your tummy. Actually […]

Falmouth Farmers Market Strawberries 2016

Strawberries made their first appearance at last Thursday’s market. And disappeared fast. A line quickly formed at the table for Pariah Dog Farm, which grows strawberries in Teaticket. “These are for eating today,” explained Jenny Christian, “and these” – motioning towards the berries waiting in the back of her truck – “will keep for a couple of days.” All the strawberries looked perfect. “I’ve been making […]
