August 12, 2018 Market News

We’re celebrating National Farmers’ Market Week by honoring one of our favorite farmers who brings us delicious mushrooms, melons, and more every week. By now many of you must know Rashaun Brown of Dan Madura Farm. If you don’t, a proper introduction is in order. Rashaun grew up in the Bronx but was pulled north for love and never looked back. When Rashaun married Kim, Dan’s daughter  (as in the Dan of Dan Madura Farm), he not only became a husband, he became a farmer! He, his wife, his father-in-law, and his three kids all work the land—the farm is truly a family affair.  Rashaun always arrives with a smile and an encyclopedic knowledge of all things mycological. Need a blue oyster recipe? Ask Rashaun. Want to know how to cook fiddleheads? Ask Rashaun.  How to achieve Global Peace? Ask Rashaun! While you’re there chatting away, make sure to pick up a casaba melon. These unique fruits are similar to honeydew, though sweeter with a white, soft flesh.

The festivities continue with a cooking demonstration and sampling by Bella Cucina and musical performancesby Greg Adams.  In the community tent we have the Greenburgh Hebrew Center and the Irvington Democratic Party.

See you at the market!
