Recipes

Crunchy Asian Slaw with Ginger-Tahini Dressing

A great slaw with a light, refreshing twist

Serves 4
For the Ginger-Tahini Dressing:

3 scallions, white and light green parts only, minced
1/4 cup low sodium tamari or soy sauce
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons tahini
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
1 1/2 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

For the salad:

2 cups shredded red cabbage
1/2 cup shredded napa cabbage
2 carrots, coarsely grated
1 medium-sized beet, coarsely grated
1 cup cilantro, finely chopped
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and cut into thin slivers
1 cup cooked, shelled edamame
1/2 cup peanuts
1/2 cup raisins
2 tablespoons sesame seeds

Prepare the dressing by whisking all of the ingredients together until smooth and well-combined. This works best with an immersion blender but a hand whisk is fine too. Taste the dressing and adjust seasonings if needed.

Place the red cabbage, Napa cabbage, carrots, beets, edemame, cilantro and jalapeño in a large bowl. Stir to combine. Pour the dressing over the cabbage mixture and toss until everything is evenly coated. Add the peanuts, raisins, and sesame seeds. Serve chilled or at room temperature.

We are in the swing of summer – can you believe it is almost 4th of July? We love this exciting time of year and all the good food it brings.

Like tomatoes! They are coming in this week and we have a mix of red and yellow heirloom varieties for you!

Blueberries are about half way through the season – now is the time to stock up! Have you frozen a bunch yet? It is so easy and will keep you in berries all winter.

Just a few more weeks on the peaches – however should have blackberries soon!

The Bloomy Rind is off this week but will return next week,

You have many options these days for produce, an we appreciate you making the effort to purchase the local and organically grown fruits and veggies we offer.

Cumberland, TN:  CSFM Sunday June 25, 2017


Hello from Cumberland Sustainable Farmers’ Market. The market is now open for this week’s orders.

Dawson Local Harvest:  This Week's Market Highlights


Dawson Local Harvest for June 30th

This Week’s Market Highlights

HI EVERYBODY!

Hope you’ve been enjoying the unusually cool temperatures. We all know this can’t last! Oh well, on to the News:

CULTURAL TRADITIONS has added new products. First up, Awesome Sauce, a thick, somewhat chunky, spicy Kimchi derivative that is great on rice, meat and eggs or as a soup base. Next, Tanya’s Cucumber Kimchi uses cucumbers instead of cabbage and radishes. Both of her Kinchis feature organic scallions, garlic, apples and more. Finally, how about Kraut Kvass, aka Kraut Juice using cabbage and apples instead of beets as a base. Hey, there’s a whole world of new taste experiences out there. Open your palette to new experiences with CULTURAL TRADITIONS.

DON’T FORGET! BRADLEY’S has Bees, and that means local Wildflower Honey! It not only tastes great but helps inoculate you and yours with local allergens to reduce hay fever, congestion and allergies. And it’s a healthier alternative to sugar. In The Market’s Honey section.

CLUTEN-FREE CAN BE DELICIOUS! We are so lucky to have MY DAILY BREAD as our baker. They do great Gluten-Free.
Suggestions: Glorious Morning Muffins (apples, carrots, coconut and walnuts), Brownies and Cheesecake Brownies. They have more at different times of the year as well as lots of Organics, and just a lot of scrumptious Breads, Cookies, Muffins, and Desserts. In the Baked Goods section.

THE MARKET IS NOW OPEN!

REMEMBER! You can now order until Tuesday night at 9 pm. Pick up your order at Leilani’s Gardens Friday afternoons from 4 to 6 pm.

You’ll find the DAWSON LOCAL HARVEST at http://dawsonville.locallygrown.net

We thank you for your interest and support of our efforts to bring you the healthiest, the freshest and the most delicious locally-produced foods possible! We guarantee your satisfaction with all products in the DAWSON LOCAL HARVEST.

Have a happy and healthy week!

Vine ripe red and black raspberries are back in season. Please be aware that berries are very weather dependent. We are estimating the amount that will be available but heavy rains or birds can affect actual amount harvested. Orders are filled on a first come-first served basis.

Pork and Rabbit Back in Stock

Heritage Hills Farm restocked their freezers with pork products and added rabbit.

Organic Milled Grains

Last week we added Appalachia Malting to our vendor list and we personally tried their buckwheat flour in buckwheat pancakes this weekend. DELICIOUS!!!

Bothered by Bugs??

Heritage Hills Farm has a new all natural bug repellent. Made with witch hazel, lemon eucalyptus essential oil, REAL vanilla extract and organic olive oil in a 2 oz glass spray mist bottle. Great for keeping nagging insects at bay, plus great for your skin!!

Have You Tried Swiss Chard?

Our colorful rainbow Swiss Chard is not only beautiful but nutritious and delicious. It can be eaten raw in salads, chopped and sauteed, on made with a hot bacon dressing.

Duette, FL:  Summer


Dear Customers,
David and I thank you for your continued support this year. This will be our last week this year to be open because we need to clear out for the planting that needs to be done at the end of July for next seasons markets. Please have a look at what we can offer this week. Between the heat and the rain, it is not much of an offering I am afraid .

Thank you,
David and Betty
Duette Locally Grown Market

The Wednesday Market:  The Market Is Open


Good afternoon.

The Wednesday Market is open for orders. Please place your order by 10 p.m. Monday. Orders are ready for pick up between 3 and 6 p.m. Wednesday. See the website for this week’s product offerings. Here is the link: https://wednesdaymarket.locallygrown.net/market

We hope everyone is enjoying summer. Our house is happy and alternately relaxed and busy. The boys are learning new skills and having fun at soccer camp and performing arts camp, and we have a family trip coming up soon.

Have you ever noticed that cows, chickens, goats, and gardens are oblivious to the holidays of human beings? Cows and goats still need to be milked, chickens keep laying eggs, and the abundance of the garden still needs picking. So, just remember that while summer is a time for most of us to relax, our farmers and producers are working as hard as ever and appreciate having orders to fill.

We hope you all have a great Sunday, and we’ll see you at the Market.

Thanks,

Beverly
