Last week was a hot and happy market. Mary Reilly, publisher of Edible Pioneer Valley, executive chef of dining services at Westfield State College and contributor to Home Sausage Makingkicked off our Summer Chef Series. Mary taught us some helpful cutting techniques while preparing Pioneer Valley Panzanella. The results were delicious! It was also inspiring to see how Mary gathered up all of the ingredients at the market and whipped up the recipe in abut 20 minutes.
The market continues to swell with new crops and products arriving each week. Grace Hill Dairy has begun bringing their pork to market. Check them out for bacon, chops, ground pork and ham steak.
Apex Orchard reports that they just began picking popular Honey Crisp Apples! They’ll have those, freestone peaches and other delicious fruits this week.
Cider Slushies are back at Park Hill Orchard!
Last week we were happy to be able to share our experience with the Healthy Incentives Program (HIP) with Congressman McGovern as part of his Farm Tour. Read more here.
The following farms are currently processing HIP at Tuesday Market: Crabapple Farm, Wingate Farm, Red Fire Farm, Old Friends Farm, Hart Farm and Park Hill Orchard.
