REMINDER: Tuesday Night Historic Brookland Farmers Market

Photo by Brookland CDC
4pm - 7 pm

10th and Otis Streets NE (adjacent to the Brookland subway station)

NOTE that we are tending to move the location to under the Michigan Avenue bridge, in case of inclement weather.

This week, Michigan Park neighbor Roxanne Carter joins the market with plants (grown locally) and baskets.

Tonight's market features peaches, apricots, more fruit and vegetables from Licking Bend Creek Farm in Pennsylvania and the Community Supported Agriculture/CSA producers Stoney Lonesome Farm from Gainesville, Virginia. Wonderful cookies and pastries come our way from Lynnette's Cakes and Catering (Virginia), and italian ices from Little Jimmy's Italian Ices (Woodridge DC).

From the Brookland CDC's Richard Layman:

Speaking of peaches, a great way to change your breakfast routine in the summer is to make fruit smoothies, with orange juice and ice, or with yogurt and ice (or both). This morning I had a peach banana smoothie, featuring "scratch and dent" peaches from D&S Farm (from the Sunday Market).

There will be plenty of peaches at the Tuesday Market, that you can use to perfect your own smoothie recipe.

This internet recipe for a ginger peach smoothie sounds pretty good too:

4 Peaches Peeled & sliced
8 oz. Vanilla Yogurt
1/2 Tsp. Grated fresh ginger
2 Tbsp. Honey
1/3 Cup Orange Juice
