Market E-Newsletter, Saturday, July 15, 2017

8 a.m. – noon

Come to our Amelia Week location – the north side of the parking lot between 6th and 7th Streets on Kansas Avenue.  The vendors will be parked like they are at the regular market location so they will be easy to find.

We have vendors selling fresh pasta, meat, tortillas, breads, beverages, flowers, and of course, the freshest vegetables and fruits in town – just picked and not shipped in from hundreds of miles away.

The Market Manager, Debbie Genova (green and white striped tent) can swipe your credit, debit or SNAP cards. We participate in the Double Up Food Program and the Kansas Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program. Buy your Farmers’ Market gift cards ($10) from Debbie and we accept Chamber of Commerce gift certificates.

Recipe with ingredients from our Market

Peach-Blackberry Compote with Basil Syrup (from EatingWell Magazine)

Fresh basil, which has a special affinity with peaches, is the secret ingredient in this sophisticated compote. The basil garnish gives guests a clue to the subtle flavor in the syrup.

Ingredients for 4 servings

  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons dry white wine
  • 3 sprigs fresh basil, plus more for garnish
  • 2 2- ½-inch strips orange zest
  • 3 cups sliced peeled peaches (3-4 medium) (see Tip)
  • 1 cup fresh blackberries
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Preparation (Prep Time: 20 min. Total Time: 50 min.)

  1. Combine sugar and wine in small saucepan; bring to a simmer. Remove from heat. Add 3 basil sprigs and orange zest; stir to immerse. Cover and let steep for 30 minutes.
  2. Strain syrup into a small bowl, pressing on basil and zest to release maximum flavor.
  3. Shortly before serving, combine peaches, blackberries, lemon juice and basil-infused syrup in a serving bowl; toss gently to coat. Serve garnished with basil sprigs.
  • Tip: To peel peaches, dip in boiling water for 30 or 40 seconds to loosen their skins. Let cool slightly, then slip off skins with a paring knife.
