Fresh Item of the Week
Tuesday Market, January 7, 2013 | 9 am - 1 pm
Tuesdays are bursting with gorgeous, greenhouse-grown tomatoes. From low acid yellow tomatoes and sweet grape tomatoes, to meaty heirlooms and green tomatoes, we've got your every tomato need covered. Tomatoes are super high in winter cold-busting vitamin C and the heart healthy antioxidant lycopene. Visit our Tuesday market (Thursday and Saturday markets too) to stock up on this locally-grown super food.
Thursday Market, January 10, 2013 | 3 pm - 7 pm
Visit Vintage Garden's tent at our Tuesday and Thursday markets for a bevy of harder to find, locally-grown herbs and produce, including fresh ginger and fresh turmeric. In addition to their unique flavors, these two rhizomes (the underground stem) are useful in a medicinal capacity. Turmeric is known as a great anti-inflammatory, while ginger is often used to settle upset stomachs. Check out the recipe for one of Chef Anne's fresh juices that uses both.
Saturday Market, January 12, 2013 | 8 am - 12 noon
Did you know that beets are nutritional superstars? In addition to their earthy, sweet taste, they deliver an alphabetical range of vitamins and minerals, including vitamins A, C and K, as well as folate, which helps with the production of new cells and magnaese, which is necessary for healthy brain function, strong bones and blood sugar regulation. Don't love the beet root? Beet greens are even better for you than the roots! Visit Saturday and Tuesday market vendors Timmy Perilloux and the Monica family to get your fill!
