Here’s some news you can use from our vendors:

Did someone say muffins? Yes! Louise from The Bakery At Riverside did! Look for blueberry muffins in addition to their awesome collection of sourdough breads.

Fresh and organic is what Beach Biscotti is all about. Look for a variety of vegan and gluten-free foods such as muffins, cookies, power bars, paleo bars and decadent black bean brownies, made fresh from scratch every week.

Can you say “yum”? The Chilly Mermaid Food Truck will feature Cantaloupe Sorbet for the first time, using fresh cantaloupes from Cromwell’s Produce.  Look for their regular line-up of gelato, plus Blood Orange Sorbet.

Take a dip with The Creative Wedge’s Sloane’s Smoked Gouda Dip and Memaw’s Pimento Cheese along with a spread just premiered last week: Wedgie’s Wild West Ranch Dip, full of flavor with cheddar cheese, ranch seasonings and a stout beer. Remember, Barbara and Sloane also continue to carry Goats-R-Us goat cheeses and more.

Flour Child Bakery comes with an assortment of summer fruit pies. Remember, they usually sell out at the market, so call ahead of time to reserve any pie you’d like to pick up.

Full Quiver Farm has smoked ham steaks on sale this weekend; save 20 percent! They’re easy to cook and wonderful on the grill. They will also have pork loin roasts on special. Come by for yummy samples of great products too. And as always, shop for eggs, sirloin steaks, ground beef, breakfast links, chicken, sausage and more. And – they are already taking orders for their legendary Thanksgiving turkeys!

It’s Seafood-a-Palooza at Jubilee Seafood with a great assortment of fresh, locally-harvested seafood including: Littleneck Clams from the Eastern Shore in bags of 25, 50 or 100; Seaside Oysters also from the Eastern Shore and also in bags of 25, 50 or 100; backfin, lump or jumbo lump fresh-picked crabmeat; 21-25 count dry-packed Sea Scallops; and Number 1- and Number 2-size hard crabs by the dozen or bushel. Remember, it’s best to call ahead for orders. And, keep in mind that clam and oyster bags are recycled.

Lamia’s Crepes will again partner with Udder Chaos Farms to offer the excuse Udder Chaos Crepe filled with fresh Berkshire sausage and two non-GMO eggs direct from Udder Chaos. It’s then topped with melted Swiss cheese and Lamia’s own homemade aioli sauce. These are limited! Come hungry and come early to get yours!

Mattawoman Creek Farms has the following organic veggies: red and yellow cherry tomatoes, green beans, yellow and blue new potatoes, slicing and Asian cucumbers, red beets, zucchini, yellow squash, savoy cabbage, lettuce, sweet onions, asparagus, beans, purple onions and kale.

RECIPE

STEAKHOUSE GREEN BEANS

Green beans have long been one of my favorite vegetables, and I like them just about any way you can prepare them. But one of my favorite ways is with a bold seasoning on them; the beans can stand up to stronger flavors, and this preparation makes them perfect to serve alongside heartier grilled foods, such as steak and burgers.

Steam one pound of prepared green beans until crisp-tender. Add to a medium bowl and drizzle 2 tablespoons of melted butter then toss. Sprinkle on 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, 1/4 teaspoon chili powder, 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper, 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder and 1/8 teaspoon onion powder and toss to coat. Serve immediately. Yields 4 servings.
