Vendor schedule for Saturday Farmers Market


WASHINGTON COURT HOUSE — You may remember that green beans were more than mentioned in last week’s Farmers Market article. I may be fixated on them because this is simply a stellar green bean year. All of my beans are bearing profusely and I am eating, selling and giving them away by the bag, big and small.

The eating is fabulous, truly “farm to fork.” These vegetables are delicious boiled or steamed with new potatoes, or steamed/cooled/then sauteed with butter or olive oil and garlic or “everything” blend. They are easily roasted or grilled and made into both old and new fashioned cold salads (think three bean salad vs. one with an Asian flair with soy sauce/rice vinegar/sesame oil and seeds along with garlic and almonds). They are delicious raw, and of course are preserved by freezing, canning, pickling or drying.

This versatile and delicious vegetable is low calorie (44 calories for a cup), and an excellent source of vitamins K and A, as well as fiber and many, many vitamins. Stop by my booth and share your favorite green bean (or any vegetable!) recipe and I’ll feature it in a future article. This is our county fair week, but you wouldn’t want to survive on fair food for a whole week, so we’ll see you at the market.

The Market is open Saturday morning from 8:30 to noon. It is located in the municipal parking lot on the corner of South Main and East East streets. SNAP EBT food benefit cards and credit/debit cards are accepted. Those using the SNAP EBT card for food purchases receive matching dollar “Produce Perks” tokens ($1 for $1) good only for fruits, vegetables, and food producing plants. So,”buy one, get one” for up to $25 every market day. Five dollar coupons will be available again for Fayette County Farm Bureau members at each Saturday market; these can be spent at both the Wednesday and Saturday markets.
