We’ve got a terrific market planned for you this Sunday! Join us at the Dvoor Farm, 111 Mine St. in Raritan Township from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Here’s what’s happening:

What’s New

Celebrate Kids Eat Right Month™ with us! We’ll have nutritional information and games on healthy eating for children.

To highlight the role everyone plays in ensuring a healthy future for our nation’s children, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and its Foundation celebrate Kids Eat Right Month each August. Kids Eat Right Month focuses on the importance of healthful eating and active lifestyles for children and families, featuring expert advice from registered dietitian nutritionists to help families shop smart, cook healthy and eat right.

We also welcome a new vendor to our market this Sunday! Jump start your morning by stopping by Fieldstone Coffee Roasters and enjoy a fresh cup of coffee. Fieldstone will also have its single origin and custom blended beans for sale. You will find an array of organic and Fair Trade coffee, and they will freshly grind your beans for you to take home to enjoy all week. Seasonal fresh-roasted iced coffee and small-batch brewed iced teas will be available, along with a wide variety of loose leaf teas.

Also visiting will be America’s Grow-A-Row, a Pittstown-based organization that  grows and gleans fresh, healthy produce that is then donated to food pantries, soup kitchens, crisis centers, and food banks all over New Jersey and beyond.

Recipe

Minted Poached Peaches

minted-peaches1-240x300What You’ll Need:
6 firm, ripe peaches
2 cups sugar
1 vanilla bean, split (or 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract)
2 strips lemon zest
1 large mint sprig, plus more for serving
4 cups water

What To Do:
Using a paring knife, lightly score an X into bottom of peaches (this will help with peeling later). In a large saucepan, combine sugar, vanilla, lemon zest, mint, and water. Cook over medium, stirring occasionally, until sugar has dissolved.

Add peaches and enough water to cover. Bring to a bare simmer, and cook, turning occasionally, until peaches are easily pierced with a skewer, 6 to 10 minutes, depending on ripeness of peaches.

Remove peaches with a slotted spoon; let cool slightly. Using a paring knife, peel peaches; return to syrup. Serve with mint sprigs.

Farmers that sell these ingredients:

Peaches: Phillips Farm, Sweet Valley Farm

Music

Kaleidoscope will perform jazz, blues and acoustic rock under the music tent.
