Pumpkin bread and pumpkin muffins pop up at The Bakery At Riverside, along with apple-cinnamon twist bread and other tasty treats.

A variety of healthy snacks from Elizabeth Eats returns to the market this weekend and select dates through the autumn.

Flour Child Bakery brings the flavor of fall with them this week with caramel apple, pecan, and pumpkin pies – and more, all made from scratch. Pre-order baked goods, including their incredible cinnamon rolls, by calling them.

Grab the fresh stuff at Jubilee Seafood;  littleneck clams, Plantation oysters, fresh-picked crabmeat, dry-packed sea scallops, Carolina shrimp, hard crabs and more will make an appearance; pre-order to make sure you get just what your tastebuds want.

This week, New Earth Farm will have sweet and hot peppers, ancho chilis, komatusna (a leafy Japanese spinach), chard, arugula, salad mix, eggs, eggplant, fresh herbs, squash, zucchini, and cucumbers.

RECIPE
SQUASH + ZUCCHINI GREEK SALAD

I love squash and zucchini, and I also love classic Greek flavors like feta cheese, fresh-squeezed lemon, and a good olive oil. I combine the two with this quick-and-easy salad that makes the most of these late summer harvest vegetables. You can craft this salad as an appetizer, as a side dish, or make it an entree by addition steamed and chilled shrimp or a poached and chilled fish, such as salmon, on top. It’s also great with a crab cake as a crown. Here’s how I make it.

Take one small yellow squash and one small zucchini, both washed and trimmed, cut into small cubes, and add to a medium-sized bowl. Add a cup of crumbled feta cheese, three tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, a tablespoon of fresh oregano, a tablespoon of fresh time, about one tablespoon of fresh lemon juice and the zest of a half lemon, and coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Toss, cover, and refrigerate at least one hour before serving. Yields about four generous side portions or two entree portions.
