4th of July Farmstand Hours and Recipe Ideas

Posted 6/28/2017 7:05pm by Christy and Chris Kantlehner.

Hi all! 

We're heading into what is looking like it is going to be a lovely holiday week! 

Just a reminder that the farmstand will be open through this weekend and then will be closed Monday AND Tuesday (the 4th) next week. 

Farmstand Hours: 
Thursday and Friday 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. 
Saturday and Sunday 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.
Closed Monday and Tuesday (July 3rd and 4th) 
Re-opening Wednesday, July 5th from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.
*Jordan Brothers Seafood will be at the stand Friday for all of your sustainable seafood needs! 

So get all of your grilling veggies and BBQ extras this weekend! We've got plenty of zucchini and summer squash from Upswing Farm and loads of other great ones to put on the grill! 

Pick-Your-Own Peas this weekend! Our pea patch is ready for you to pick this weekend. 

**Grab your container from the farmstand and take the super short walk over to the pea field. Fill those containers (and snack on some while your at it!!)


Now, we know many of you that have participated in the boxed CSA shares in the past have loved not only the variety, but the challenge of having to create new recipes and meal ideas with what you are given in your box. 

The Summer CSA is a Farmstand CSA card where you put a minimum of $200 on the card to use at the farmstand and in return you get 5% back on the card (10% for those that signed up early.) :) **There is still time to sign up for the Farmstand CSA card here if you haven't had the chance yet. 

So, throughout this summer, we'll be emailing (and posting at the farmstand) a suggested $20 CSA share each week. Feel free to take our suggestions if you want to! And keep emailing us with all of the delicious and gorgeous meals that you've been preparing with the produce each week. There are some amazing chefs out there in our CSA crowd!

4th of July Recipes for your Cookout! 

Red, White, and Blue Potatoes!! We'll be stocking the farmstand with red white and blue potatoes this week for your potato salads and grilled potatoes this week. You can make an awesome, locally grown, fresh festive dish as your contribution to the BBQ you'll be attending! 

Make some potato salad! Check out Christy's recipe for Warm Potato Salad with Snap Peas and Bacon.

Ingredients to grab at the farmstand: 

  • Red, white, and blue potato assortment
  • Snap peas
  • Purple scallions
  • Dill or parsley 
  • Bacon (optional)
  • Eggs

In addition, here's a GREAT Napa Cabbage Salad with a Peanut Dressing.

Grab some napa cabbage, scallions, bok choi, carrots, hakurei turnips, and cilantro at the stand! 

And if that didn't get your mouth watering, we'll leave you with this picture of some of our sakura cherry tomatoes currently ripening in our 'lil tunnel! A little taste of what's to come. 

As always, keep us posted with what you're doing with your fresh veggies. Email us or share your pictures and recipe ideas with us on Facebook!
