Farmers’ Market Enters Fall Season

Source: www.food.com

In June, the Delaware Department of Agriculture (DDA) asked participants of local farmers’ markets to help them produce new recipe cards for the upcoming year that will be distributed to the markets as well as on-farm markets all throughout Delaware. Participants from Milford’s downtown Farmer’s Market, which is open every Saturday from 9am-1pm from now through October, were featured on 8 of the the 20 recipe cards that were created by the DDA. We have included some recipes from the Milford Farmers’ Markets participants and encourage our readers to buy the ingredients fresh and local from our own downtown market.

Squash

In Season: June-September

Choose squash with a smooth, hard, richly colored rind. Store for up to a week in a paper bag in the refrigerator. Do not store in a plastic bag as it traps moisture and causes rotting.

Downtown Milford Inc. is asking for additional vendors to join their Saturday Riverwalk Farmers Market in Downtown Milford.  The market, which takes place every Saturday until October 27, provides the opportunity for the Milford community to come together and enjoy shopping for a variety of locally grown produce/meats/seafood, baked goods, prepared foods and locally produced handcrafted art while being entertained, informed and visiting with their neighbors/friends.

Individuals interested may fill out an application on the DMI website at www.downtownmilford.org. For more information contact DMI headquarters at 1-302-839-1180 or director@downtownmilford.org
