Did you know that watermelons are both a fruit and a vegetable? They are the product of a seed-producing plant and have a sweet taste, yet they are also related to the squash, pumpkin, and cucumber families. They are a great source of hydration (about 92% of the watermelon is water) and their sweetness makes it impossible to have only one slice. Mix some sweet and salty togeth...er in this Watermelon, Blueberry, and Feta Salad. You can pick up almost all of the ingredients for the salad at market - watermelon, blueberries, feta, and basil.
Jeep Apel will be joining us on Saturday - a man and his guitar. He will be playing some classic rock and other hits. Come out to market between 9 and 11 for him to wow you!
For the Kids...
This week, we are having a "Kids Quilt Corner". No, they won't actually be sewing a quilt, but they will work alongside each other to create a beautiful array of art. We will have a rainbow of sidewalk chalk and different squares for the kids to choose from. With all of the talent from the children, the boxes will come together to look like a fancy patchwork quilt.
See you this weekend!
