Farmers Market Part 1: Summer Harvest Festival



This year, my tomatoes, green onions and herbs have been doing so well. About two weeks ago I realized I have not been to the Farmers Market at all. I needed some habaneros so off I went to see Rita, my fave supplier of ultra-hot peppers. She was not around and no one had habaneros to sell (I will have to go to Food Pyramid after all). But the nice thing about going to Farmers Market was ---this was the day they are celebrating Summer Harvest Festival. The vendors donated some of their fresh produce for taste testing. Shonna Richardson (Farmers Market Manager and owner of Persimmon Hill Farm), her family and other volunteers were preparing the food for sampling. Heston was the grill master for the event. He was was so pleasant to talk to as he grilled breads, tomatoes, zucchinis, squashes, fresh lamb pattties, bison burger, bison brats and more. Hes was so much fun--you really gotta meet him and taste the awesome breads his mom makes! I loved the grilled Tomato and Asiago Cheese Bread, Rosemary Blue Cheese Bread and bison brats! Jacqui brought gazpacho for sampling and exotic marinades for the grilled veggies. There was a huge turnout for the event and everyone looked like they had a good time.
