FOOD NEWS YOU CAN USE

Welcome to our newest vendor, Beach Bees Apiary. Owner Jonathan Brooks will be at OBFM with local honey straight from his own hives. Jonathan says he’s been beekeeping for more than four years. “We are passionate about the bees and do everything we can to keep them healthy and happy. We only collect extra honey from the hives.” Beach Bees Apiary helps meet the market’s requests from customers who have asked for local honey.

Back to the market this week is Max the Knife Sharpening. Come bring your blades! He sharpens just about everything from carving knives to pruning shears, and even serrated edges so sharp the knives could star in a Ginsu commercial.

Virginia Beach Master Gardeners are back with us this week, too, so come with your gardening questions.

Stay after the market as The Commonwealth ViBe Summer Beer Garden returns in ViBe Park, just across Cypress Street from OBFM.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

RECIPE

VIRGINIA E MELONE 

Enhance an outdoor gathering with this simple and elegant use of local ingredients.

Cut a chilled cantaloupe from Mattawoman Creek Farms, in half width-wise, and then cut each half into eighths length-wise; remove the rind. Wrap a paper-thin slice of Virginia country ham around each cantaloupe slice and arrange on a platter. Drizzle local honey from each Bees Apiary, and sprinkle a few grinds of freshly ground black pepper on top and garnish with fresh basil leaves.
