On-Farm Market Week 9, Celery, Brussels Sprouts, and More New This Week

Just as we welcome new neighbors and friends to the Chocolates and Tomatoes Farm market (7957 Hollow Road, Middletown, MD 21769) each week (9am-1pm on Saturdays), the veggie patch and fruit orchard welcome new varieties everyday at this time of the year. It is a fun time to be (or become) a fresh fruit and veggie lover.

Nearly all of what we sell at the Market is grown or made here at Chocolates and Tomatoes Farm. If we don't say where it is from, then it is from here.

New for Week 9

  • Celery (pictured left)

  • Red potatoes (pictured middle) -- still have the white ones, too

  • Brussels Sprouts (pictured right) -- we love them pan roasted with olive oil, salt, and pepper (just cut them in half)

  • Cipollini Onions -- sweet, small Italian onion; smaller and flatter than our yellow candy onions

  • Sweet green peppers

  • Peaches grown here -- our first ever -- see this blog for the story

  • Basil

  • Plums from Baugher's Orchard in Westminster, MD

Limited Quantity Items

  • Blackberries: just a few pints of blackberries appeared last week at market, we expect the same this week

  • Cherry Tomatoes: just a couple pints of cherry tomatoes were at market last week; this week will still be limited quantity, but soon tomatoes of all types will be rolling in

Continuing Summer Bounty

We expect to continue to have plenty of these veggies and fruits this week:

  • Beets, Blueberries

  • Cabbage, Carrots, Chard, Cucumbers

  • Garlic, Green Onions

  • Herbs: Dill, Mint, Tarragon

  • Kale, Kohlrabi

  • Radishes

  • Salad Mix, Spinach, Squash (yellow and zucchini)
