PREVIOUSLY AT THE MARKET

It was a gloriously sunny day at the Market last week. The air was a bit cool towards closing time. Perhaps to remind us that we are entering the peak of the harvest season and autumn is around the corner.

We wish Thanasi and Cynthia of Mr. T's Italian Ices a cozy winter! Last week was their last day of this season. They will return with the hot weather next year.

Naming Contest

We received about 60 suggest names during the past six weeks. They are all clever and catchy. We are in the process of reducing the list to about 10 names so that we can conduct a vote for the winner.

The voting will start next week (Sep 13) and go for two weeks. It would really help if someone can step forward to manage the details of the voting at the information table on those Market Days. We also would like to collect votes online through the Market's website or its Facebook page. However, we don't yet have a someone to create and manage online voting. Any volunteers?

RECIPE FOR THIS WEEK

Selected by Maxine Manjos

Tomato, Pickled Melon and Burrata Salad

I pickled some grapes earlier this year. It was so easy to toss them into some vinegar and let them sit for a few minutes, I just had to give this easy pickling method a try. Then I added the grapes into a salad and found that they provided a surprising little jolt of flavor. It was an experiment that succeeded. (A couple of days later I had a few leftover grapes still sitting in vinegar in the refrigerator. Let's just say that I recommend eating them before they have spent too much time absorbing the vinegar). So this recipe uses the same easy pickling process with melon pieces. Frankly, I don't know the types of melon mentioned in the recipe, but I am confident that our local cantaloupes would fit the bill. Any kind of mild white cheese would do well in this recipe--burrata, mozzarella or goat.

Click on the link below and make your own experiment with pickled fruit added to a salad.
