To make the most delicious food, you have to use local product. I rely on the Plymouth Farmers’ Market to source the freshest ingredients for the menu at Solstice.

Harvest and Cooks Notes

  • Apponagansett Farm

    We are starting to harvest fall greens. We should have a mix of summer veggies and fall greens this week.

  • Martha’s Local Food

    I am preparing lovely stewed eggplant with onions, peppers and tomatoes all from Web of Life Farm.
    You will also find 2 varieties of refrigerator pickles made with Plato’s Harvest Farm cucumbers..

    TRY THIS | Now is the time to stock up on tomatoes and eggplant to process and store for your farm fresh meals through out the winter. What a treat to eat fron the farms in the dead of winter.

  • Rein’s Real Rye

    I’m still trying to figure out why my bagels never too off, despite how great they taste. I’ve decided to “prime the pump” at Plymouth this week by offering one free bagel to the first 50 people who mention this notice (one per household). Please (PLEASE!) don’t eat them at the market. Wait until you get home, slice and toast and have with your favorite topping. Eating them that way is really the ONLY way to enjoy the full experience of my Rye Bagels. Do let me know how you found them when you see us again at the market (or email, of course).
    What does the kitchen look like when the appliance repairman (me) has to make an emergency call halfway through a baking day? Answer? Like another tornado struck my kitchen! See the photos.

    The bad news: I lost 12 loaves of bread not baked enough (photo 2 shows loaves on lower racks with much less color) as well as 12 loave’s worth of dough I had to discard. (The trash guys are really gonna wonder next week!)
    The good news: I got out 16 loaves of Tarragon and 8 loaves of Caraway before the oven died on me. Not enough to do a farmers market but good for selling as frozen.

    I baked again on Friday and the bread’s coming out better than ever. Phew! (Also, now that I know what the inner construction of the oven looks like I’m one step closer to the possibility of installing a homemade steam generator.)

  • Plato’s Harvest Organic Farm

    We’ve been busy pulling in several tons of winter squash – butternut, acorn, spaghetti, delicata, baby blue hubbards and pumpkins. It’s all packed in the greenhouse to cure, and I’ll be bringing it to the market soon.

    I’ll be bringing beets, carrots, chard, kale, arugula, fennel, cucumbers, tomatoes, potatoes, onions, garlic, and watermelon to market this week. Know your farmer, don’t take food from strangers!

  • Sticky Paws

    As requested by many market goers, we will be featuring cat treats this week as well as a variety of gourmet dog treats.

    TRY THIS | Our dog treats can be refrigerated and/or frozen to extend their shelf life.

  • Omega Olive Oil

    TRY THIS | Try our OOO Blackberry Ginger Balsamic Vinegar! Naturally flavored with the gentle heat of spicy ginger and ripe sweet blackberry.

    Together, these flavors work especially well over pancakes, ice cream, in jelly, or in vinaigrette. Try with our OOO Lime Olive Oil.
