What's growing on at the Seville Farm Market

As you can tell from the hot, humid weather, summer is in full swing -- and so is the availability of fresh, locally grown produce at the Seville Farm Market. Come visit us in the cool of a Saturday morning. Enjoy a cup of coffee and a fresh muffin, cookie or scone from one of our talented bakers, and stroll around the market under the shade of the trees at Stanhope Park.

We're grateful to local food writer Tom Noe for last month's terrific cooking demonstration. Tom made some delicious gnocchi right on the spot, using fresh ingredients from the market. On Aug. 13 we'll welcome cookbook author Jane Snow for a cooking demo using fresh market ingredients. Our very popular cooking contest, The Zucchini Smackdown, also takes place on Aug. 20, so start scouting those zucchini recipes now.

And we know those pumpkin plants given away free to our young market visitors in early June must be growing, too! At the end of the season, we'll award prizes for the biggest pumpkins grown by our junior gardeners. Why not take a picture of your pumpkin and let us know how it's growing? E-mail it to sevillefarmersmarket@gmail.com so we can post a photo of your pumpkin-in-progress on our blog.

See you at the market!
