Great news, Marketeers! This summer we're hosting kids events at the CCFM every Saturday, not just the first Saturday of the month. This Saturday we kick off our summer-long series of "Market Day Trips" kids events with squash car races. That's right, we're building race cars out of locally grown squash! We'll highlight a different parish or county in our local food region and the foods that are grown and raised there each weekend. Come win cool prizes and learn all about our delicious local landscape.
of the Week
The Chilton County peaches and Silver Queen corn are both perfectly sweet right now. We love this Corn and Peach Salsa with any number of things we might throw on the grill. A little sweet, a little spicy, this salsa is delicious with chicken from Joe Dobie (Tuesdays) and Adam Aucoin (Saturdays).
