Fresh Item of the Week
Tuesday Market, December 7, 2010 | 9 am - 1 pm
One of the many benefits of shopping at the CCFM is the opportunity to cultivate relationships with the people who grow, catch and raise our food. Knowing that it can be tough to make it to the market for the opening bell during these hectic holiday weeks, vendors are often willing to set items aside for long-standing customers. In fact, many often prefer shoppers to call in advance so as to be sure not to disappoint them, and to be able to better plan what they bring to the market. It's always worth asking. Vendor contact information is available on our CCFM website.
Thursday Market, December 9, 2010 | 3 pm - 7 pm
Healthy eating is always important, but can be especially difficult around the holidays. Nur's Kitchen offers a wide selection of healthy, ready-to-eat Mediterranean dishes including red lentil balls, lima beans plaki, marinated navy bean salad and vegetarian stuffed grape leaves. Pick up a few to take to work for healthy lunches to offset all that not always healthy holiday party eating.
Saturday Market, December 11, 2010 | 8 am - 12 pm
Normally baking his authentic German breads for every Saturday Market would be biting off more than Capt. Karl Mueller can chew. But with the holidays right around the corner and his traditional German stollen (a loaf-shaped cake with dried fruit and nuts, dusted with powdered sugar) in high demand, the Capt. joins us every Saturday (save for Christmas Day, of course) in December. Place your holiday order this Saturday.
Recipe of the Week
The two main healthy ingredients in this Sweet Potato and Spinach Soup are both in season and available at the CCFM right now. Other less than healthy, but equally (more?) delicious ingredients on the list - smoked sausage and heavy whipping cream - are available year-round!
