Peachtree Circle Farm’s Flowery Bee Food

Peachtree Circle Farm Flowers

Peachtree Circle Farm is known for growing flowers. People make a beeline for its mixed bouquets, and its beautiful cut flowers. Earlier in the season you’d have found lilacs, peonies, calla lilies, lavender and gladioli at Peachtree Circle’s market table. Right now you’ll find big heads of sunflowers. Sometimes garnished with a bee. We don’t typically think of flowers as food. (Though there […]

Corn Relish

No-recipe corn-cob stock

Corn from Falmouth Farmers Market

Corn. We’ll happily eat it all summer – boiled, grilled, sometimes raw, occasionally microwaved, on the cob and off. Off the cob, corn has endless uses. Shear the cooked or raw kernels off the cob with a sharp knife. Toss kernels into salads, relishes and salsas. Tuck them into tacos. Make fritters, pancakes, corn-studded cornbread, creamy corn chowder or risotto. What to do with the […]

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 […]

Russian salad

Russian Salad - Waste Not Recipe - Falmouth Farmers Market 2016

How come “Russian Salad” isn’t better known in the US? Variations on the theme of potatoes, carrots, peas and pickled cucumber in a creamy dressing seem to have spread around the globe, from Europe to Latin America and parts of Asia. When peas aren’t available, cut-up beans can take their place. In the Mediterranean you’ll find pickles nudged out by green olives. Sour cream (even yoghurt) […]

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 […]

Celery leaf salt

Celery Green Salt- Falmouth Farmers Market- July 2016

Years ago when celery was first introduced at our market by Moonlight Alpaca Farm, someone (a silver-tongued siren, perhaps?) named it Pedestrian Celery. It was anything but. Many people trying it for the first time are astonished at the flavor it packs. Moonlight’s celery also comes topped with a bush of leaves. You can use the leaves to flavor soups, of course, mince and use […]
