Make This Sunday’s Farmers’ Market
A Family Affair


Make this weekend’s trip to the Farmers’ Market a family affair! We’ll have children’s activities and loads of great nourishing food to keep your family healthy. We’re open at the Dvoor Farm, 111 Mine St. in Raritan Township, Sunday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

What’s New

Cover_paintsplatter_REV2If you’re kids love a good story, then make sure you visit the market around 11 a.m. as we’ll have two children’s authors visiting. First, stop by the River Valley Waldorf School tent where Ashley Mills Monaghan will read and sign copies of her book, A Little Goes a Long Way. She’ll also conduct a special performance of the featured song in the book after the signing.

The book tells the story of Fin and his little dog, Sausages, as they learn to be more careful when helping out with the chores around the house.

 This award-winning book is simply written, beautifully illustrated and includes a free website full of downloads, printable activities and classroom activity suggestions.

River Valley will also have a coloring activity for children.

Also, Lisa Eichlen will share her wonderful book “The Bravest Boy I Knew” with young readers. This book, written especially for children ages 4 to 8, tells a beautiful story of friendship and acceptance.

New Product: Hollandview Farm now has fresh milled whole wheat flour available for purchase at our market. The flour is certified organic and made from hard red winter wheat. Take your baking to a whole new level with Hollandview wheat.

Hang around the Farmers’ Market right after closing and make us the first stop in the second week of “The Museums of Hunterdon County” celebration. We’ll explore the beautiful Case-Dvoor farmhouse, constructed by Philip Case in 1798. We’ll show you this beautiful home from top to bottom and share with you the many interesting tales of the people and events that have occurred here. Docent-led tours run from 1 to 5 p.m.

Recipe

Grilled Chicken with Lemon and Thyme

54f9d143b20fc_-_grilled-chicken-breasts-lemon-thyme-xl-52037915What You’ll Need:
1 1/2 tbsp. lemon juice
1/4 tsp. dried thyme
1/2 tsp. dried red-pepper flakes
1 clove garlic
1/4 c. olive oil
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. fresh-ground black pepper
4 bone-in chicken breasts (about 2 1/4 pounds in all)

What To Do:
— Light the grill or heat the broiler. In a shallow dish, combine the lemon juice with the thyme, red-pepper flakes, garlic, oil, salt, and black pepper. Coat the chicken with the mixture.
— Grill the chicken breasts over moderately high heat or broil them for 8 to 10 minutes. Turn and cook until the chicken is just done, about 10 minutes longer.
— Variations: Try any dried herb you like in place of the thyme. Marjoram, oregano, rosemary or sage are all good choices. Use boneless, skinless chicken breasts instead of bone-in breasts. Grill them until just done, about five minutes per side over moderately high heat. Use a quartered chicken instead of bone-in breasts. Cook the breast sections as directed in Step 2 and allow thirteen minutes per side for the leg quarters.
