PEACHES HAVE ARRIVED AT MARKET!
We love this time of the season when we have difficulty deciding what to eat because we have so many wonderful, fresh from the field choices! Berries of all sorts, peaches, corn, cucumbers, peppers, squash, greens, etc. Our newest just ripened produce is peaches. They are featured in our recipe this week.
National Farmers' Market Week is August 1 - August 7. To celebrate we will be offering a lottery at the market on the 7th. Next Saturday just fill in the form - name and email - drop in the collection jar and we will select 3 winners at the end of the market. You do not need to be present to win. First place winner receives a $25 gift certificate to the market OR one of our Bolga market baskets. Second place receives a $15 gift certificate to the market OR a market t-shirt. Third place receives a $5 gift certificate to the market OR a CT Grown canvas bag. Check out the prize choices at the Market Master tent this week.
Here's the line-up for this Saturday. Current forecast is for sunny, dry (!!) weather. Hope to see you there.
Our recipe this week is Peach Corn Tomato Salsa. We searched for a recipe using our current fresh from the field produce and found this. And we're glad we did! Delicious as a dip for chips. Wonderful as a side salad or over greens. Or as a topping for poached chicken. Or many other things that may come t mind for you. Enjoy!
We look forward to seeing you at the market - outdoors at the Center School parking lot.

SUSTAINABLE TIP OF THE WEEK
Ecosia is a search engine founded in late 2009 which donates approximately 80% of its profits to organizations with a focus on reforestation, i.e., planting trees. That means every time you use Ecosia – whether for research, or just for fun – you are helping to plant more trees in the areas that need it the most. A full list of where Ecosia helps to plant trees can be found here.
