Help The JCOC

This is the last Saturday the Old Beach Farmers Market will be collecting hard food goods for The Judeo-Christian Outreach Center (JCOC) in Virginia Beach from June 9th till July 7th.

Please drop all food donations at the information booth inside The Farm Market behind Crocs.

Items needed: canned fruits and vegetables, canned meats, canned meals, pasta and pasta sauce, soup, canned beans, macaroni and cheese, peanut butter and jelly, cereal, oatmeal and/or grits, bottled water, and juice boxes.

Old Beach Markets on the move

Remember: with construction beginning on the 19th Street Corridor improvements, which is anticipated to take two years and reduce the street to two lanes, the Old Beach Markets have shifted locations around the corner.

The Old Beach Green Market and the Old Beach Art Market are now at the new ViBe Park at Cypress Avenue and 18th Street. Old Beach Farmers Market  vendors such as Cromwell’s Produce and The Chilly Mermaid are affected as well. Market hours remain the same, 9 a.m. until noon on Saturdays.

The new park is behind Wareing’s Gym and across from Bad Ass Coffee. The park will also host afternoon concerts on the second and fourth Saturdays of each month. Free parking is available at the Virginia Beach Convention Center and at The Runnymede Corporation on Cypress at 20th and 21st Streets.

Happy July 4th

OBFM wishes you all a happy and safe Independence Day.

A simple seasonal pleasure are rich, red, ripe tomatoes; Mattawoman Creek Farms brings first-of-the-season organic slicing tomatoes are at the market this weekend.

Slice these bad boys and serve on soft, white bread. Cut them up and add them to a green salad. Grill slices along side burgers and dogs; it’s all good. Also good: my recipe for Tomato-mole, a spreadable dip that’s one of my favorite ways to enjoy fresh tomatoes. Here’s how you make it – 

Finely chop one large, ripe tomato and add to a medium bowl. Toss it with a tablespoon of lime juice, a teaspoon of hot sauce, 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder. Then fold in two peeled and mashed avocados and a quarter cup of sour cream, stirring until well combined. Chill for about an hour before use, and enjoy as a dip with chips, a spread on sandwiches, or a topping on grilled seafood. Yields 4-6 servings.
