Despite the suffocating heat today, we did head to the farmer's market. The lovely Amish folks were absent last week and I was eager to see them again and let them know how much our family has been enjoying their maple syrup. I think they are my favorite booth to visit.
I picked up a loaf of fresh bread (we're going to have BLTs for dinner tonight -- yummy!), along with goat cheese they are now carrying (can't wait to try it!), and of course the weekly treat of apple fried pies. I think they had some of the best looking zucchini I have seen yet this summer, too.
A new vendor at the market specializes in doggy treats. I figured Koda shouldn't be left out of a shopping trip (and since we are having company this weekend that includes a dog) I decided to pick up a bag of goodies for Koda to share with her friend. Koda has sampled one of the biscuits and I think she approves!

A quick stop at Growing Hope yielded a beautiful bunch of Swiss Chard that will be used in tomorrow night's dinner.
Finally, after wandering the market for twenty minutes (and really regretting doing so in dress clothes), we headed across the street to the coffee house for cool, refreshing treats. Chase munched on his cinnamon roll from the Amish bakery (that's his weekly treat) while Steve and I chatted over espresso milkshakes.
Sadly, no vendors had peaches (Chase is in a peach mood right now) so I will have to check with our co-op tomorrow. I'm still trying to find a recipe for the tart cherries I picked up last week. I pitted and froze them so they're just waiting for use now. Anyone have suggestions?
Hope everyone is staying cool!
