    Harvest and Cooks Notes

    • Ashley Kate Lobsters

      Pick up a few lobsters at the Market and wow your family and friends with this easy recipe!

      TRY THIS | Lobster Rangoon

      8 oz finely chopped cooked lobster meat
      8 oz package Cream Cheese (softened)
      1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
      1 tsp Soy Sauce
      Garlic, salt & pepper to taste
      Minced onion (if you like)
      1 package of Wontons (in produce section)

      Mix together ingredients, drop 1 Tbsp of lobster mix onto a Wonton wrapper, pinch and cook as directed on package.

    • Skinny Dip Farm

      We’re starting to pick just a few ripe red tomatoes from our greenhouse, that means summer is really here! Summer squash, zucchini and cucumbers are starting to come in very strong. We’ve been loving grilled zucchini and cucumber salads for dinner. We have lots of greens options these days, zesty arugula, spring mix, sweet crunchy lettuce, kale and rainbow chard. I’ll be bringing carrots, beets, turnips, new potatoes, fresh onions and garlic, and lots of beautiful flowers. All certified organic.

      TRY THIS | Grilled Zucchini

      Simple grilled zucchini. Cut zucchini into 1/4 inch thick slices. Coat with olive oil, salt and pepper. (Or get fancy and add herbs, onion, garlic, soy sauce… to your marinade). Grill for 5 minutes per side, or until zucchini and soft and browned. It’s that easy!

    • C.N. Smith

      We will feature our first pick of sweet corn, fresh blueberries and raspberries!

    • Nantucket Mushrooms LLC

      Thank you for your continued support! We will have fresh oyster mushrooms, shiitake, maitake, crimini and portobello. For Dried Mushrooms we will have lion’s mane brown oyster and white elms (fresh white elms are pictured below).

    • Plato’s Harvest Organic Farm

      Another great week at the market last week – thank you! What a great scene – kids all over the grass playing on blankets, great music, the smell of flat bread and pizza over fire, and all of this great food! Come check it out this week. Another note – following the market this week is Fire Up and Chill!! the Edible South Shore summer issue release party at the Mayflower Brewery from 7 – 9 pm. It will be a great crowd of local food lovers, there will be music, local food served up by Martha, a raw bar, and lots of great beer! I hope to see lots of you there.

      This week I’ll be bringing: arugula, basil, beets, cabbage, carrots, chard, collard greens, Sweet Corn (!) (I’m pretty sure!), cucumbers, eggplant, delicious fresh garlic, kale, lettuce, possibly new red potatoes, summer squash and zucchini, and lots of eggs!

    • Jenny’s Bread

      Nantucket Mushrooms and CN Smith onions or organic sweet and spicy peppers and onions, both with a sprinkling of Atwell’s Gold cheese and seasoned with fresh garlic from Skinny Dip, Plato’s Harvest and Web of Life farms.

      TRY THIS | Mexican Corn Salad

      6-5 ears lightly steamed corn
      1/2 sweet onion, chopped
      1-2 minced jalapeños
      2-3 cloves minced garlic
      Handful of chopped cilantro
      1-2 chopped tomatoes
      1/4 cup olive oil
      2-3 tablespoons lime juice
      Pinch of cumin
      Pinch of chili powder
      Sprinkle of chipotle powder
      Kosher salt to taste

      In the bottom of a large bowl, combine olive oil, lime juice, and spices. Blend well with whisk or fork. Add remaining ingredients and toss well. Taste and adjust seasoning. Allow to sit 30 minutes before eating to allow flavors to marry. Make it a meal by adding a can of drained and rinsed black beans along with other veggies and a cup of cubed cheddar cheese when served. Serve with a loaf of peasant bread to sop up the juices.

    • Copicut Farms

      These summer evenings are a delight and we can’t seem to drag ourselves indoors for dinner. Our favorite treat on the grill this week has been drumsticks and thighs marinated in smoked paprika with just a touch of salt. They are addictive and no matter how many we make they seem to all have disappeared by the time the sun finally sets and we head indoors to bed.


      Need a refreshing treat? Look no further!
