PREVIOUSLY AT THE MARKET

Last week was Jazz Week in the East End. Shoppers were torn between visiting the Market or soaking up some of the best jazz in the world. We still had a very nice turn out. Many people stopped by the Market to grab some essentials before heading downtown. And more than a few slowed down to listen to Joan Burch under our Music Tent.

The sun was warm and the air was cool. It was a perfect afternoon for stopping at the Market.

Mr. T's Italian Ice is back until the end of August.

RECIPE FOR THIS WEEK

Selected by Maxine Manjos

Summer Vegetables Sub Sandwich with Garlic Cream

Background

There's a secret ingredient you might have on hand right in your refrigerator that makes all the difference in these quick-fix summer sandwiches. It's a container of cream cheese. You mix a clove of minced garlic and olive oil right in the container--no muss, no fuss, no extra dish to wash-- spread it on soft French rolls, add both fresh and pantry vegetables and you are good to go. These sandwiches pack easily for car trips, a day at the beach or anytime some simple picnic food is what just you want.
