Late summer treasures
August 19, 2014 - garden totes
Drop a kids off during propagandize and find some time to ramble a stalls of a St. Helena Farmers Market to find luscious melons, frail heirloom apples, outlandish peppers, plump figs, jams from only harvested fruits, furious salmon just-caught from circuitously waters and more.
Our farmers and purveyors are happy to share elementary preparations to liven adult your meals. Some as easy as tossing cubes of melon with a handful of sharp-witted salad greens, some unsound goat or feta cheese, roasted chopped cashews and a light dash of oil and vinegar to pleasure a eye and taste. Or maybe we wish to try figs, that are not required fruits though rather inverted flowers with a thousand seeds and really juicy tender or roasted in a oven until caramelized. With a small superintendence and mixture so alive, good food is a certain bet.
The Kid’s Story Tent will come alive with Mari Martinez of St. Helena Public Library pity a story in English and Spanish during 9:30 a.m.
Amanda Tuttle, Market Educator will perform a kids during a Market Classroom during 10:30 a.m. with a brief story, “The Three Sisters: Beans, Squash and Corn” and hands-on scrutiny of these 3 plants, their plant parts, and some juicy samples of what is uninformed and delicious, true from a garden.
Bring a receptacle and find your treasures among a copious displays of produce, flowers and crafts, representation here and there, and suffer a conviviality of St. Helena Farmers Market from 7:30 a.m. to noon on Fridays by a finish of October.
