Market Days With Roots Down Organic Farm

 The Brockville Farmer's Market has plenty to offer this summer. It is open Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 8 AM - 1 PM- May to December.

         I am privileged to be helping out Saturday mornings at the Roots Down Organic Farm booth.  Marta and I work together often. She's full of energy and great company too!

Roots Down is at the market on Thursday and Saturday mornings.  Every week there is something new! Everyone was super happy to see the pints of colourful cherry tomatoes, "sweet as candy." they say. A sell-out week after week.

 New red potatoes, green and purple beans anyone? This weekend there were yellow beans too.

                                          Curly kale or Rainbow Swiss chard.

 I made a lovely and colourful coleslaw with red and green cabbage. I used this recipe. Yum!

 Fresh garlic and patty pan summer squash, young yellow and green zucchini. All wonderful choices for a warm weather BBQ!

  Fresh basil for fresh pesto. Oh, so very fragrant!  Do you have a farmer's market nearby?  You never know what you will find or who you will meet. Much more fun that shopping at a grocery store, and you are supporting your local economy in the most local way too.

Fresh veggies are the best and I love supporting the local farmers too.
