At the Market this Week: Shlagel Farm

We truly are at the height of thew summer growing season, and Eileen Shlagel proves it with this list of produce that she'll have at Cheverly Community Market this Saturday:

Shlagel Farms will have peaches, blackberries, blueberries, seedless watermelons, canteloupes, tomatoes, grape tomatoes, eggplant, squash, zucchini, cucumbers, kale and collards, peppers, speciality peppers, and ciders. I will also be bringing a great recipe for ratatouille that a chef at her Alexandria market provided. Let's hope for cooler weather.

Yes, let's keep our fingers -- and toes -- crossed for lower temperatures (or at least less humidity and more breeze!) The good thing? The produce that you buy at the Market will certainly keep you feeling a little cooler -- I'm thinking of a big, juicy slice of cold watermelon right now! And frozen blueberries? Yum, yum, yum!

We can't wait to get that ratatouille recipe!
