Dear shoppers,

Have you tried the fantastic goat cheese from Lime Kiln Farm? They are new to the market this year and are a terrific addition, both in product and in personality. Pair any of their cheeses with a baguette or miche from Bien Cuit. And, they offer several varieities so easy to put together a market cheese platter now that McGrath Cheese Co. is coming every week as well.

Also new this year is Kimchi Culture, some of the best Kimchi you will find outside of Korea. They offer a really interesting variety of seasonal kimchi and, as per tradition, the cabbage kimchi is presented whole and quartered requiring cutting with scissors. What pairs well with kimchi? Bulgogi, a Korean beef dish that you can pan-fry, smoke, or bake. Basically, it’s sliced rib eye that has been marinated in soy sauce, sesame oil, fruits and vegetable extracts. Kimchi Culture sells bags of frozen bulgogi, ready to toss in your cast iron skillet for a quick and easy mid-week dinner.

We have a guest vendor at the market on Sunday, New Castle Scone comes to us from Chappaqua. Their scones are surprisingly light and come in flavors such as cranberry-orange, lemon-poppyseed and double-chocolate. Baker Grace Baccay also offers gluten-free options.

The tomatoes are insane this year. Buy some sliced sourdough or French bread from Wave Hill Breads on Sunday and make yourself an open-faced tomato sandwich with coarse salt every day next week. Bag the mayo for a drizzle of Kontoulis olive oil or a light touch of creamery butter instead. You are welcome.

See you at the market!
