July: Fresh from the Market
Summer is in full swing now, which means an abundance of delicious produce! We had our second cooking demo from the "Fresh from the Market" series last night and are excited to share some mouth-watering recipes with you. For the zucchini pie, we brought fresh zucchini and oregano from our gardens, however you can find most all of the seasonal produce used in these recipes at your local farmers market, as well as any grocery store.
We also shared two excellent handouts showing what Washington-grown vegetables, fruits, legumes, and herbs are in season and when. You can find the vegetable chart here and the fruit, legume, and herb chart here. In Washington, we are fortunate to have access to almost all produce year-round in our grocery stores, however here are a few fun reasons to eat more seasonal produce:
Peach & Celery Salad
Blueberry Oatmeal Snack Bars
