Fresh Item of the Week
Tuesday Market, August 21, 2012 | 9 am - 1 pm
Last week, WWNO's Farmers Market Minute talked about the resurgence of canning and preserving, and featured CCFM vendor Anita de Boisblanc of White Wood Farms. Her jams, jellies, and BBQ sauces are a huge hit at the market. Grab a jar of one of her many varieties of pepper jelly, put over some of Ryals chevre, and voila! A delicious snack or appetizer. You can find Anita at most Tuesday and Saturday markets with a dazzling array of preserved Louisiana produce.
Thursday Market, August 23, 2012 | 3 pm - 7 pm
We know everyone's been missing Forte Grove Bakery at our Thursday market the past few weeks. We're happy to report that they'll be back at the market this week with their delicious breads and baked goods. Use their whole wheat baguette to sop up BBQ shrimp or Nur's hummus. It's great any way you slice it!
Saturday Market, August 25, 2012 | 8 am - 12 noon
We're crazy about fungus at CCFM! Mushrooms are health powerhouses, known for their immunity boosting powers. The nutritious shiitake mushroom is comparable to green beans and peas. It ranks above corn, turnips, potatoes, tomatoes and carrots in both quantity and quality of protein. Mississippi Natural Products has both dried and fresh shiitake mushrooms at our Saturday market. Add some to your next pasta dish, sandwich, omelet...the possibilities are endless, and delicious!
Recipe of the Week
Inspired to pick up some mushrooms and French bread at the market this week? We have the perfect recipe using both! Chef Anne Churchill is full of great recipe ideas, especially vegetarian ones like this Savory Mushroom Bread Pudding.
