Cooling Cukes, spatchcock chicken and a ready-made marinade

Bon app cuke focCucumbers: they are packed with fiber and vitamins, are good for your hair, your nails, your skin, your digestion and your blood pressure. They help flush toxins, fight stress and cancer. They are low-calorie and completely affordable. But, most importantly – they contain 95 percent WATER – so are extremely cooling on a sweltering July day in New York. You can always count on a cucumber to cool you down – inside and out.

Raw cucumber spears dipped in Taiim Shack Mobile’s magenta beet hummus, Sohha Savory Yogurt yogurt with Zaatar, or drizzled with lemon or Kontoulis Family Olive Oil are reliably good.But there are so many more ways you can enjoy these humble green gourds. Bon Appétit Magazine put together a handy list of great cucumber recipes ranging from popsicles to margaritas http://bit.ly/29XTCEC including this beautiful flatbread capped with burrata and sliced cucumbers.

If you don’t want to make flatbread, use a slice of hearty Bien Cuit miche or of Bread Alone Bakery’s rustic foccacia instead. Lasagna Preziosa’s creamy mozzarella would be a lovely substitute for burrata and sub some of Sun Sprout Farm’s cheery, teensy yellow cherry tomatoes for the favas.

Southtown Farms has brought back their spatchcock chicken – these birds are butterflied and ready to hug the grill.

AnnaMaria’s Northern Italian Jams bringing two new sauces this week: a Red Pepper Vinaigrette, a perfect match for Neversink Farm’s head-turning heads of lettuce; and a traditional Piemontese Bagna Verde, a dipping or grilling sauce for everything from red meats and fish to veggies. The main ingredients are parsley, capers, garlic, and olive oil, and just a dollop delivers “a great fresh kick to any dish” says chef Dominique. “It is also good with strong cheeses and fantastic on cured meat sandwiches.”

Our rotating vendors this week are:
AnnaMaria’s Northern Italian Jams Jams
Bombay Emerald Chutney Company
Calcutta Kitchens
Clean Ridge Soap Company, LLC
Champagne Tea
Kaffee & Klatsch NY
MOMO dressing
Nutty Spread

Lots to look forward to at the market this Saturday!

For starters a gorgeous day – with Milton at the music helm. Always a lovely way to kick-start the weekend. Also Broken Bow Brewery is here for their second visit. They can’t get here often as we’d like them to so make sure you bring your growler and stock up. They were a big hitContinue Reading

Cherries, breakfast parfaits and a whole lotta lamb at the market this week!

New Coffee Vendor, Asian Farmer Dumplings is BACK and…get your kebab on this Fourth of July!

I am so happy to announce that Big Bang Coffee of Peekskill is joining our market. Owner Elina Dart was a Westchester and NYC coffee-house devotee as a teenager which led her to eventually work on a coffee farm in Kona, Hawaii. Eventually, after years of research, travel and coffee tasting, she started her ownContinue Reading

eat your peas!

if you can get some…that is. I am always amazed at how quickly they disappear from the Taliaferro Farm display. No sooner has Pete Taliaferro Jr. finished unloading a crate on his table, they’re gone! If you’re lucky enough to score some considering making this pea and mint spread. The perfect thing to slather on some Bien Cuit bread,Continue Reading
