Children’s Activities Featured
At This Week’s Farmers’ Market

Stock up on fresh local produce at this week’s Farmers’ Market, and bring the kids along for a fun activity with the River Valley Waldorf School. In case you haven’t visited us yet, we are located at the Dvoor Farm, 111 Mine St. in Raritan Township.

Here’s a round up of this week’s festivities:

What’s New

The River Valley Waldorf School returns to the market with several fun children’s activities.

Don’t forget our newest vendor, Fieldstone Coffee Roasters, will return to the market with fresh coffee, beans, teas and more.

Speaking of coffee, if you’ve never tried steak with a coffee marinade, we have a terrific recipe below.


Flank Steak with Coffee-Peppercorn Marinade

Serves 4

MB4080What You’ll Need:
3 tablespoons strong brewed coffee
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon whole black peppercorns, crushed
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 pound flank steak, trimmed of fat

What To Do:
— Whisk coffee, vinegar, oil, sugar, garlic, peppercorns and salt in a glass dish large enough for meat to lie flat. Add steak and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 8 hours.
— Heat grill to high.
— Remove steak from marinade (discard marinade). Lightly oil grill rack. To do so, oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack. Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill. — Place steak on grill and cook for 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer steak to a cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes. Slice thinly across the grain and serve.
