Market Musing

Almost every day over the last month someone here at the Market has come to me with a plate of something from the kitchen.  “Try this!  What do you think?”  Sampling is all part of the process of launching a new recipe from our bakery or kitchen!  On the surface it seems like it should be easy to just add something to the menu, however there are lots of considerations!  We focus on featuring locally produced food ingredients. Then we consider the time involved making the recipe; how it fits into our daily production schedule, food costs, plate presentation, packaging requirements and selling price.  Last but not least is the taste! Peter and I usually get the final say but everyone has a chance for input as we eat our way through versions of  the recipe!  We are our own best critics!

We just launched our own Grilled Cheese sandwich styled with sliced apple and Evelyn’s hot pepper jelly.  It is so deliciously comforting and reminds me of my childhood lunches at Beulah Fraser’s home in Eureka.  We sometimes had lunch there when my Mom was away and my favorite lunch was tomato soup  (I’m sure it was Campbell’s) and grilled cheese sandwiches (probably made with Velveeta cheese!).  Please join us for our Market Grilled Cheese!

We also added Pulled Pork as a frozen food item.  We have a homemade barbeque sauce to go along with the pork for sandwiches. 

We hope you enjoy these additions as much as we enjoyed getting them to you!

Bon appetite!

Celebrating Mother's Day

We love to celebrate Mothers.  We will have our always popular free ice cream for Mothers on Sunday.  In the greenhouse we have cute gift ideas for mom - pansy pots, gerbera daisies under $10.00.  (Perhaps take lunch or supper home with you)  Great gift ideas in the Market too.
