|Where we’ll be:
Pawtuxet Village Farmers Market
Thundermist West Warwick Farmers Market
This week we will be featuring a tomato tasting at the market. Our tomato varieties include:
Yellow Brandywine (my personal favorite)
In addition, we will be introducing our variety of hot peppers:
Want to know how hot these peppers are?
Moruga Scorpion —> 1.2 million units
Ghost —> 1 million units
Habanero —> 350,000
Lemon Drop —> 100,000 units
To put the heat in perspective, the Scorpion pepper contains 500 times more heat than a Jalapeno. Yikes!
In addition to the tomatoes and hot peppers, we will be bringing the following items to market this week:
Blackberries (from our friend Manny)
Skyphos Butterhead Lettuce
Chioggia Beets (pronounced kee-OH-gee-uh)
Fortex Pole Beans
*Socrates cucumbers are a thin-skinned fruit (thus the reason you don’t see them in the grocery store) that are tender, sweet and seedless
Zinias (red and yellow)
Dried Herbs and Teas include:
Dream Pillows (Mugwart & Lavender)
Spearmint & Lavender Tea
Did you know that Terry’s Tasty Treasures buys hot peppers from Blue Skys Farm for their Pepper Jellies? It is great when local businesses buy local products! In fact here is a photograph that Christina took of the Jalapeno and Serrano Peppers that Terry purchased last week.
Terry’s Tasty Treasure will be at the market this week so be sure to stop by to purchase some Tasty Treasures.
Do you have any plastic grocery bags hanging around? We would love to take them off your hands. This time of year in particular, we go through a large amount of bags. We would much rather recycle than purchase new. So, if you are coming to the market, please feel free to drop off as many bags as you would like. Thanks!
Hope to see you at the market!
