What a GREAT market last week!
With perfect weather and a variety of awesome vendors, the Ice Cream Social was a huge hit. We went through SEVEN GALLONS of ice cream! Thanks to everyone who came out!
A new cheese vendor, Bon Bree Brick, from Williams Homestead Creamery came last week to share their delicious, creamy cheese! Sampling every one was a must.
Thanks everyone for keeping this Market going this summer. We couldn’t do it without ANY of you, vendors and customers alike!
SEE YOU THURSDAY!
Recipe of the Week: Broccoli Slaw

makes 5 cups
2 heads broccoli
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons currants (plumped in boiling water, if desired)
1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
3/4 cup slivered almonds (or whole almonds that have been roughly chopped, like ours above)
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
freshly ground pepper
Shred the broccoli in a food processor, using the grater disk (the attachment with the smaller holes, not the one with long, thin blades). In a large bowl, combine the shredded broccoli, currants, red onion, and almonds.
Whisk together the mayonnaise, lemon juice, vinegar, sugar, salt, and a few grinds of fresh pepper. Pour the dressing over the broccoli mixture and stir to combine. Taste and add more salt or pepper, if needed. Allow to sit for 30 minutes (or an hour in the fridge) so the flavors can mingle.
