Here’s some news you can use from our vendors:

The Bakery at Riverside Farm reports that the majority of their loaves are a true sourdough and vegan. Louise says she’s been on a babka kick—chocolate/walnut is her favorite, but she’s also making cinnamon/raisin or cranberry. Also, look for cream scones and muffins to go with your coffee as you shop. Muffins tend to feature local fruit or vegetables.

Bergey’s Blossoms will have lots of elephant garlic, last of spring potatoes, peppers and of course pre-made bouquets in glass mason jars. They are now offering bouquet subscriptions (like a flower CSA)  where you can purchase 6 weeks of large premium bouquets, for pick up at their farm or at OBFM; sign up Saturday and get $10 off!

Commune  comes with large, early heirloom tomatoes full of big, juicy, swoon-worthy flavors! Other new things include lovage and salad turnips. Also this week: pattypan squash, cucumbers, and okra. Big bulb onions will be available in 2 or 3 weeks.

Things are corny at Cromwell’s Produce; fresh-cut, bi-color sweet corn in fact, named Latte. Other items: South Carolina peaches and tomatoes, red, white and blue potatoes for that patriotic potato salad, handpicked snap beans and melons, and more.

Flour Child Bakery will present such seasonal pies as Strawberry-Rhubarb and Triple Berry and other favorites including cherry, Key lime, and lemon chess. Whole 9-inch pies can be reserved by phoning them in advance.

Give ‘em kale! Give.Treat.Love. will have organic kale-mint treats for pets. Kale is a great source of fiber, calcium and vitamins A, E, and C and is shown to decrease the risk of cancer in our fur babies. The kale comes from our friends at the market, Mattawoman Creek Farm.

Jubilee Seafood says look for fresh shrimp, crabmeat, scallops, clams, oysters and hard crabs. Preorder by 4pm on Thursday for pickup by 10am on Saturday to assure your selection.

Lamia’s Crepes will again be serving their delicious sweet and savory crepes at the OBFM, including their specialty Brunch Crepe (egg, bacon, swiss) and our Chesapeake Crepe (egg, spinach, tomatoes, swiss).  Both are topped with Lamia’s homemade aioli spread and are exclusive to the market.

My Vegan Sweet Tooth comes with sweet treats and hot breakfast burritos.

Congratulations to Vy’s Pies for recognition of their amazing Brooklyn Apple Pie in a recent Distinction Magazine. You can find it and other decadent pies this weekend along with some amazing artisan quiches like spinach and feta.



There are few things better than fresh corn; in the summer, each little yellow kernel just seems to burst with sunshine. Corn-on-the-cob is amazing, whether the ears are boiled, roasted or grilled, but I love taking that method one step further. Here is one of my favorite ways: my Sensational Summer Corn Salad:

Boil or roast 3-4 ears of corn, allow to cool to room temperature, and cut kernels off the cobs. Place kernels in a large mixing bowl along with 10-12 cherry tomatoes, quartered; one-half of a green pepper, chopped; one celery stalk and leaves, chopped; one-half of a red onion or a sweet onion such as Vidalia, chopped; one small bunch flat leaf parsley, chopped; 1 teaspoon sea salt; 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper; and 1 teaspoon powdered garlic. Toss and add 1/4 cup Greek yogurt; toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate at least one hour before serving. Yields 6 servings.
