Artisans’ Sunday Returns
To Our Farmers’ Market

Come on out to our Farmers’ Market this Sunday for loads of fresh produce — including beets, carrots, onions, tomatoes, heirloom tomatoes, watermelons and apples — chicken, beef, pork, bacon, honey, native seeds, fresh-cut flowers, bread, cheeses and more. Support your local farmers while discovering how much better local food tastes. We’re open Sunday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Looking for a quick breakfast or lunch? The Fired-Up Food Truck will return making flat-bread pizzas and serving coffee, or grab a yogurt from Fulper Family Farmstead, or a pastry from Apple Ridge or Hollandview farms.

Join us for the return of Artisans’ Sunday! We’ll be welcoming John Wear with pottery, Mustache Jack Creations, woodworker; and Whimsey Eco Chick, repurposed feed bags.

1 large eggplant (about 1 1/2 pounds), trimmed, cut lengthwise into 1-inch-thick slices
Coarse salt
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
2 cups cherry tomatoes (about 10 ounces), halved
1/4 cup pine nuts, toasted
1 ounce feta cheese, crumbled (about 1/4 cup)
Pinch of red-pepper flakes
1/4 cup packed fresh basil leaves, torn if large

What to Do
— Generously season eggplant slices with salt. Place vertically in a colander, overlapping them. Let stand 30 minutes; rinse and pat dry.

— Spoon over eggplant; top with basil.
