Your favorite four-legged friend will love joining the family on a trip to our Farmers’ Market.

Here’s what’s coming up at our next Farmers’ Market:

What’s New 

Two new Purely Farm products are premiering this week.

Stop by the market and check out these ready-to-eat treats. As always, fresh ingredients, unique recipes and an attention to detail inspire Purely Farm’s special creations.

Country Braise — a succulent blend of Purely Farms pork featuring the flavors of carrots, onions, celery and Jersey tomatoes yielding a ready-to-eat, slowly braised treat that is chock full of hearty meat.  Purely suggest serving it atop a wholesome slice of crusty bread, adding it to some fresh tomato sauce for a bountiful Bolognese or pairing with rice or quinoa.

 

Spuma di Gota — a delicious blend of pork jowls, ricotta cheese and secret salty spices. This tasty spread can be put upon warm bread or crackers, dolloped into sauces or eaten by the spoonful when no one is looking.

In case you missed last week’s announcement, Fulper Family Farmstead is now offering half-gallons of whole milk for sale.

Bobolink Dairy & Bakehouse started selling cream and homogenized (but not pasteurized) milk.

You can pick up your Sandbrook Meadow Farm CSA members can now pickup their produce at our Farmers’ Market.

At the Fired Up Flatbread Co. food truck you can pre-order coffee beans from The Coffee Scoop for pick up the following week.

Special Event

Stop by and check out Adam Wengryn’s informative display about the work his company, Restoration Technologies, is doing converting our wagon shed into a rustic classroom. Restoration Technologies, based in Belvidere, New Jersey, was born out of a love for history: A love particularly for historic architecture such as houses, barns, mills, churches, and the many other long-forgotten buildings and their amenities.

“Through these structures we can learn a great deal about our forefathers and their way of life. For this reason we are dedicated to the study, documentation, and preservation of such structures and related antique materials. This dedication to historic structures has helped us to become an active leader in the preservation community,” his website notes.

Adam will also have picture frames made from old barn wood available for purchase.

Recipe

Asian-Inspired Mustard Greens

Serves 4

mustard greensWhat You’ll Need:
1 tablespoon sesame seeds (optional)
1 teaspoon Asian (toasted) sesame oil
6 cups washed and chopped mustard greens
1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon minced garlic, or to taste
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 teaspoons Japanese rice wine vinegar
1 teaspoon sake (optional)
1 teaspoon white sugar

How to Make It:
— Place the sesame seeds into a large skillet over medium heat, and cook and stir constantly until the seeds are toasted a golden brown and make a continuous crackling noise, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer the seeds immediately to a bowl to stop the cooking process. Set seeds aside.

— Place sesame oil in the hot skillet, and heat until it just begins to smoke (this should happen very fast). Place mustard greens into the hot oil, and pour in water. With a spatula, gently toss the greens until they are wilted and reduced in quantity, about 2 minutes. Mix in garlic, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, sake, and sugar.

— Bring the mixture to a boil, stir until sugar has dissolved, and cover the skillet. Reduce heat to a simmer, and cook until the greens are tender, 10 to 15 minutes. If a thicker sauce is desired, remove greens with a slotted spoon, and cook the liquid down to desired thickness; return greens to the skillet, toss in the pan juices, and sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds.
