At the Market this week: Shlagel Farm

As if we weren't already excited about the Market this Saturday, Eileen Shlagel sends this...
Hello Cheverly!

This week Shlagel Farms will be offering squash and zucchini (wow there are so many different recipes on line to spruce up an old favorite!), peppers, green and speciality, eggplant, kale and collards, (I'll pick more this time...we had a run on people trying to make kale chips last market) blue and blackberries, peaches (free- stone are ripe!) cabbage, canteloupes, white sweet corn, tomatoes, potatoes, onions and ciders. Oops, almost forgot... large brown eggs from uncaged birds who are fed organic vegetarian feeed and fresh well water every day.

By the way, I made a large beautiful blackberry pie today. Found the recipe on It was very simple and quick! Takes 2 pints but makes a large prizewinning pie!
See you on Saturday!

Can't wait! Especially for that corn! We grilled corn over the 4th, and followed Mark Bittman's suggestion: shuck it, soak it, pat dry and grill (no foil, no husk) for 2-3 minutes a side, until some of the kernels are dark (carmelized). Delicious and simple!
