Our next Pop-Up Market is coming on Tuesday, August 25 from 4:00 - 6:00 p.m. Once again we will be in the parking lot behind the Purple Carrot Market Building (53 E Broadway, Little Falls) with three of our producer-owners offering fresh local foods.
The Bluffs Grass-Fed Beef will have a variety of steaks, roasts, ribs, ground beef and hamburger, hot dogs, summer sausage, organ meats, and beef sticks as well as chickens and free-range eggs. Check out their order form to see their entire list of products and prices. We encourage you to call them at 320-333-5498 to pre-order any larger quantities that you might want.
Little Falls Bakery and Deli will bring baguettes, breadsticks, corn toasties, and creme cakes to the Pop-Up Market. For larger quantities of these delicious baked goods, please call them at 320-632-6388 with your pre-order.
The produce from Stone Hill Farms LLC will include cucumbers, cauliflower, zucchini, sweet and hot peppers, tomatoes, squash and cabbage.
Zucchini is everywhere at this time of year, but what can you do with it all? In a Facebook Live event on Tuesday, August 18, Elise Carey will show you how to make a quick raw salad with zucchini ribbons and a chili lime vinaigrette; she will also demonstrate how to prep zucchini for carbonara. Throughout her demonstration, Elise will highlight the different varieties of zucchini and give tips on other things you can do with this versatile vegetable. Simply go to the Purple Carrot's Facebook page and click on the event to see the live stream. You can ask questions via the chat function during the event. If you're unable to join us on Tuesday, the video will stay on the Purple Carrot's Facebook page and a link be shared here on our website.
On most Saturday mornings through the summer, Elise can be found at the Little Falls Farmers Market offering her scones, jams and jellies, pickles, salves, and much more. She brings years of culinary expertise from multiple cultures to her cooking. She is also Purple Carrot Owner #275!
Last evening, Joelle Zylka shared with our Facebook community the many secrets she's learned in nearly 40 years of making pickles. If you didn't get a chance to join us live, we recorded the session so that you can watch it when you have a moment. Just click here and Joelle will guide you through the Art of Making Pickles.
During her presentation, Joelle said that she would share some of her favorite sources of pickle recipes. Two books she recommends are "Ball Canning Book" and "Putting Food By" by Janet Greene. These books are available in the original and new, revised editions. A recipe that you can find online is Grandma's Dill Pickles on the Taste of Home website. For Russian Dill Pickles, Joelle suggests going to www.cooks.com for recipes.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
