Melons are our reward for suffering through the heat

August 27, 2016 – When do you go at red and stop at green?

When you’re eating a watermelon.

Did you know? Watermelons are an excellent source of vitamins A and C – and they have even more lycopene than fresh tomatoes.

Together we’ve been suffering through the hottest summer on record. Our farmers have been out in the scorching sun, working hard to bring fresh, Maryland produce to market. Here’s what’s coming in this week:

  • Watermelon
  • Cantaloupe
  • Peaches
  • Nectarines
  • Pears (Bartlett)
  • Apples (Summer Rambo, Ginger Gold)
  • Squash (Summer and Butternut)
  • Sweet Corn (non GMO)
  • Tomatoes (beefsteak style and heirloom – including valencia, green zebra, moskovich, nepal, and woomato)
  • Beets
  • Beans
  • Bell Peppers (many assorted colors)
  • Eggplant
  • Cabbage (green and red)
  • Mushrooms
  • Carrots
  • Garlic
  • Onions
  • Potatoes
  • Cage Free Eggs
  • Honey
  • Fresh Ground Nut Butters
  • Fresh Cut Herbs
  • Fresh Cut Flowers

>>Our dietitian has a great recipe using market-fresh eggplant, squash, onion and garlic

And don’t forget the delicious and healthy prepared foods from our other vendors:

  • Baked goods
  • Barbecue
