Dear Market Customers!
 
We hope you are enjoying this beautiful weather, cookouts with family and friends, and the bounty of summer, of which we have plenty, especially tomatoes and arugula!  So swing by the market while you are out running errands! 
 
What we'll have this Saturday:

- Fish Peppers (New!): The fruity, hot pepper with a regional history. Brought to Baltimore by slaves, and used by regional chefs to make hot sauce for fish and shellfish. It's about cayenne hot.

Red Slicing Tomatoes, 2nd's: For canning and freezing whole or cooking down into sauce. Just ask Jen...It's easy. 25 lb box for $20! See our Website for canning/freezing recipes.
Red Slicing Tomatoes, 1st's: We have LOTS of great, red tomatoes that are equally good on sandwiches, as they are for canning and making sauces.

Did you know that the Romans called the plant eruca, and thought of it as a little bit of an aphrodisiac? Well, you knew it was spicy!
