Everyone has been enjoying the Eat Local Challenge activities on Saturdays in June and this week should be no exception. Saturday morning the market will be buzzing with a beekeeping discussion with Paw Paw’s Honey (Did you know his son is a bee keeper too?). Come by and hear about how to start beekeeping and why it’s so important. Pick up a jar of local honey while you’re there and start thinking sweet thoughts about bees and their impact on our food, community and environment.
of the Week
Blueberries and barbeque reach their seasonal heights simultaneously, yet they're rarely combined on a plate. Chef Darin Nesbit brilliantly combines the trademark local flavor of New Orleans coffee & chicory, local honey and tangy local berries in this show-stopping Blueberry Barbeque Sauce that's delicious on roast duck, rotisserie chicken or grilled pork tenderloin.
