We’re Crazy for Gourds!

By fallspark, September 29th, 2017 | No Comments »

We’re ready to squash your fear of gourds! Squash can be a little confusing since you can buy summer squash well into the fall, and winter squash start showing up in late summer. It’s enough to drive you out of your gourd! Now’s the perfect time to explore different varieties. Whether you plan to eat them (which we recommend!) or decorate with them (which we also recommend!), you’ll find many varieties at the market this Saturday!

Looking for a recipe idea? See our simple grilled Summer Squash below.

Don’t let the chill in the air keep you away. The Falls Park Farmers Market has lots of fresh treats to take home. Craving some autumn colors? A mix of fall flowers might be just the thing to brighten your home. Come check out the assortment of fresh veggies including potatoes, onions, beets, carrots, tomatoes, corn, and more. Need some inspiration of what to do with your fresh picks? Visit with the vendors; they’re the experts.

The fresh goodies don’t stop there. Get your weekly supply of cheeses, baked goods, and pasta, stock up on amazing soaps and personal care products, sip on some coffee or herbal tea, or share a hot wood-fired pizza!

Ready to squish some squash? Try mashing and cooking the flesh with some fresh herbs, olive oil, salt and pepper. Then dry the outside of the gourd to create your own container to serve your squash in.

With more than 2,500 varieties of apples grown in the US, you’re sure to find at least one that pleases your palate. An apple tree takes 4-5 years before it starts producing apples, but they are worth waiting for!

Potatoes. Perfect Side Dish!

By fallspark, September 14th, 2017 | Comments Off on Potatoes. Perfect Side Dish!

  • Scrub and boil a pound of small potatoes in salted water until soft. The time will vary based on the size of the potatoes, start checking after 10 minutes. You should be able to pierce the skin easily with a sharp knife. (Yukon Gold are great, but any small potatoes will work!)
  • Toss with 2 tablespoons melted butter, 1 tablespoon of fresh mint leaves (chopped fine) and salt and pepper to taste.

The Sweet Kernels of Summer

By fallspark, September 1st, 2017 | Comments Off on The Sweet Kernels of Summer

Labor Day may have passed but our fresh sweet corn still tastes like summer! Really, is there anything better than corn on the cob with butter, salt and pepper? Sure, you could put corn in soups, salads, casseroles or just leave it alone as a side dish; there really isn’t any bad way to eat it. And if you’re like us, you’ll want to freeze some for a taste of summer in the dead of winter. Either way, come on down to the Falls Park Farmers Market this Saturday and stock up! We’re including a fun recipe for Zesty Corn on the Cob below. 

Need more reasons to come downtown this Saturday? The Sidewalk Arts Festival will be happening around the Washington Pavilion from 9 to 5 and GermanFest will be kicking off in Falls Park West at 1, just the Farmers Market is shutting down.

Recipe: Caprese Salad

By fallspark, August 3rd, 2017 | No Comments »

Caprese is simple and elegant. The red, white and green colors not only celebrate the freshness of the season, but they match the Italian flag!

  • Arrange sliced tomatoes and slices of fresh mozzarella cheese on a plate
  • Sprinkle with fresh chopped or torn basil leaves
  • Drizzle with a little olive oil and Balsamic vinegar

What do you do with a perfectly ripe tomato? Are you a salt and pepper person or do you sprinkle on sugar? Do you like them simply sliced and fresh or made into your favorite salsa or pasta sauce? On a salad or a sandwich? As far as we’re concerned, there’s no wrong way to eat a tomato!

With the abundance of tomatoes hitting the market this summer, we suggest you try the classic Caprese salad. Say it as kah-prey-zey so when you tell your friends, they’ll think you spent a week in Italy. Check out the super simple recipe below!

This Saturday the market will also be brimming with sweet corn, beets, potatoes, beans, onions and even some fresh garlic. Lots of carrots, turnips, kohlrabi, summer squash and the first of the Brussels sprouts are here too!  As always we’ll have fresh coffee, tea, pizza, pasta, breads, meats and so much more!

See you on Saturday!

Did you know you can roast watermelon seeds and eat them like sunflower seeds? It’s like a snack within a snack!

Bigger isn’t always better! When choosing your zucchini, look for small to medium sized veggies to maximize your flavor.

Cauliflower grows in heavy green leaves that protect it from sunlight. It stays white because chlorophyll can’t develop.

It’s Beginning to Taste Like Summer

By fallspark, July 30th, 2017 | No Comments »

What’s the thing you crave every summer? That one thing whose first bite says “Yeah, summer is here!” Is it that first ear of local sweet corn, slathered in butter? Or that big fresh tomato that you ate before you could even make a BLT?

Whatever your favorite taste of summer might be, you’ll find it at the Falls Park Farmers Market! The tomatoes and sweet corn are coming in. We’ve also got beans, onions, beets, summer squash, zucchini, potatoes, and so much more.

And how about some fresh carrots? Whether you like the traditional orange or the multi-colored varieties, they are in abundance at the Market. You can eat them fresh or we love them roasted with brown butter and sage. It’s super simple to make and tastes like a gourmet treat!

As always we have fresh flowers, baked goods and pasta. Stock up on local honey, amazing soaps and personal care products, sip on some coffee or herbal tea, or share a pizza.

What does summer taste like? Find out Saturday mornings from 8 AM to 1 PM in beautiful Falls Park.

Do you love onions, but hate the teary preparation? Try lighting a candle next to your chopping board for clearer vision!

Want to peel your tomatoes fast? Boil them for 20-30 seconds and then drop them into ice water. You’ll be able to pull the peels right off!

Love the punch of flavor that garlic gives your food but hate your breath afterwards? Sip a little lemon juice or to counteract the scent.
