We've got a great market planned for this weekend. Mileur Orchard will be back with early season peaches and summer produce is picking up stride and we will have a wide array of veggies from broccoli and cauliflower, to new potatoes and zucchini. Get stocked up for a farm to table Father's Day dinner!
A BIG thank you to everyone who made it out to our first Wednesday Community Farmers Market of the season! We are really pleased with the new time and location and look forward to being able to provide local foods to the Carbondale area during the week. Be sure to stop by next week and check it out!
The Community Farmers Market Downtown is located on Washington Street between US Hwy 13 east and west. Weekday market hours are Wednesday from 4-7pm.
This week’s vendors include:
This week on the nutrition education series we featured zucchini. We all love zucchini bread, but who wants to heat the house up baking in the summer? This week on the blog we talk you through how to grill and ribbon zucchini for savory summer treats. Follow the link to learn how to make Savory Zucchini Ribbons or stop by the market information table to pick up a paper copy. We will have a nutritionist available at the market information table to answer any and all questions about preparation, storage and nutrition. A great resource if you're looking eat more veggies this season!
