Old Beach Markets on the move

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 relocating to the new ViBe Park at Cypress Avenue and 18th Street. A handful of farmers and other vendors of the Old Beach Farmers Market 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.


What do you call a bunch of berries sitting around playing the guitar? … A jam session !!!



June is National Sweet Tea Month. .My Sweet Tea Granita would be good served simply in a sorbet bowl garnished with fresh mint as a dessert, scooped into an old fashioned glass of bourbon for an after-dinner drink, or even spooned on top of oysters as an alternative to a mignonette or other sauce. 

Here’s how to make it: prepare two cups of tea. While hot, add a quarter-cup of freshly-squeezed lemon juice, 2 tablespoons sugar, and handful of fresh, chopped mint. Stir until sugar is dissolved, and allow to sit until cooled completely to room temperature. Strain into a 9- by 13-inch glass baking dish and sprinkle the zest of one lemon across the top.

Freeze the mixture for 30 minutes. Remove from the freezer and, using the tines of a fork, scrape the frozen crystals across the surface from the outside of the dish toward the center. Return the mixture to the freezer, and repeat the scraping process every 30 minutes until the mixture is completely frozen and granular, 3 to 4 hours. Store covered in the freezer; break up with a fork or potato masher before serving.
