“People want honest, flavorful food, not some show-off meal that takes days to prepare.” –Chef Ted Allen

Weather forecast for Market hours: Rising to the 80s with a chance for rain.

Music: Two beloved acts play our stages this week: She Hates Me (east side) & John Rossi (west side).

What’s in season: 
Most active Jersey produce includes: Pears, collards, okra, lima beans, eggplant, raspberries (fall bearing), beets, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, collards, peppers, potatoes, tomatoes, squash.
(Peaches, corn are still around but not for much longer. Apples will start to appear!)

In other words – savor the abundance of summer season crops while the weather cooperates. Soon there will be a chill to the air and the hot-temp-dependent harvests will wane.

Wild Flour Bakery has two breads made with Yards beers. Multi-grain (their most popular bread is made with whole wheat, sour dough, Yards Extra Special Ale, and Cracked 9-grain blend). They tell us: “It is a good, sturdy bread that can be used in make ahead sandwiches because it does not break down.”
Their other Yards bread is dark pumpernickel made with rye bread flour, Yards General Washington’s Tavern Porter, Cracked 9-grain blend, Yards ESA Grains, Natural Rye, and sour dough culture.
