Week of August 24 & 27

It's back to school time!!  What better way to send your kids off to learn and play than with a full belly of fresh, nutritious fruits and veggies?  Bring the whole family to the market to pick up your favorite foods, try something new, and enjoy family-friendly activities.

Last week, we enjoyed great conversations with the Center for Community Growth and amazing cooking demonstrations and samples with Portia Diaz of Portia's Bistro.  She used market produce to prepare lamb and beet hash, radish salsa, and a coconut corn porridge and shared coffee and donuts courtesy of Donut Connection!

This week, we welcome the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Indiana, PA to our Communtiy Tent where they will share information about hunger awareness, and the Indiana Free Library will once again occupy the Kids' Tent.

This week, we also shine on the spotlight on a long-time vendor at the market, Peterson Produce.  The Petersons have been farming for about 40 years and sell a wide variety of produce, specializing in greens, potatoes, and beans.  Learn more about them here.

We will be open fair week, regular times and places.

Looking for a new way to use your summer favorites?  This recipe for Sauteed Summer Squash and Tomatoes mixes lots of fresh veggies you can find at the market with a hint of mint for even more refreshing flavor.

First Unitarian Universalist Church is a religious community grounded in love, support and acceptance committed to such goals as inspiring and nourishing the personal spiritual journey and promoting compassionate and responsible thought and action in the world.

The Indiana Free Library offers programs for children of all ages throughout the year, providing a fun environment to teach early literacy skills through books, songs, hand rhymes, and crafts.

See you at the market!
