The First of this Year’s Cantaloupe

Fisher Hill Farm Local Cantaloupe

Well, they’re finally starting to get ripe enough to take to the market with us. They came out beautiful this year despite the late start and we couldn’t be happier.  They’re a little smaller this year but they are super sweet!

There’s nothing quite like a nice ripe cantaloupe especially if its local. It’s healthy, delicious, and so juicy that it’s actually thirst quenching, especially on a hot dry day like the days we’ve had recently. It’s a pretty soft start so far so our supplies might be limited at market this weekend but we’ll bring as much as we can. We’ve been getting a lot of questions about them so we’re glad we can bring some!

In other news, we’ve spent a lot of time planting. Beets, chard, and kale are constantly being planted since April so we have a steady supply for the whole season. We also planted broccoli, lettuce, scallions, rutabaga and kohlrabi for fall harvest and winter storage. The season is absolutely flying by. Can you believe it’s August already?

Eggplant and peppers should be coming soon for those of  you who have asked. They’re almost ready. We don’t expect to see them this weekend at the market. The sweet corn has been a huge hit. Thanks to everyone for the compliments. Nothing makes us happier than hearing about how much you enjoyed what we grew and how you cooked it. We like recipe sharing too so don’t be shy!

Here’s a list of what to expect this weekend:

Bunched Beets

Spring Onions

Sweet Onions, bunched with greens

String Beans

Shallots

Swiss Chard 

Kale (curly, red russian)

Lettuce

Radishes

Zucchini and Summer Squash

Cucumbers

Basil

Sweet Corn

New potatoes, red

Carrots

Cherry & Grape Tomatoes

Hope you have a great weekend. Come by and visit us at the Rochester Public Market and the Brighton Farmers Market!
