Pick of the Week: Summer Squash

The markets are bursting with summer squash this year and we want to know your favorite way to serve it! Be it green zucchini, the vibrant golden zucchini, the oddly shaped pattypan or the ubiquitous yellow squash – we’re always looking for new ways to cook it. Share your favorite preparation on the Crescent City Farmers Market facebook page. Be sure to check out this week’s recipe for a spicy way to serve up this beautiful bounty!

Tuesday’s Green Plate Special

Last week, Empanada Intifada delighted the lunch crowds with delicious baked empanadas with such fun names as “Hispanopita” (spinach with chevrve, tomatillo salsa and honey-roasted pepitas) and “Bean-a Vista Social Club” (Cuban-style black beans with citrus, fried plantain and jasmine rice) and sides of poblano-cream mac & cheese, and sesame quinoa salad. Visit Tuesday market this week to see what they’ve got in store for you!
