Roasted Fennel and Artichoke Hearts
from Martha Stewart – This is a really nice side dish

1 fennel bulb (12 ounces), cut into 3/4-inch wedges, 1 tablespoon fronds reserved for garnish
1 can whole artichoke hearts in water (13.75 ounces), drained, patted dry, and cut in half lengthwise
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons roughly chopped flat-leaf parsley

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Arrange fennel and artichokes on a rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons oil, and season with salt and pepper. Roast vegetables until caramelized on both sides, about 35 minutes, tossing after 20 minutes.

Drizzle with remaining oil and the lemon juice. Add parsley, and toss to combine. Garnish with fennel fronds.

Market News

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads and to those celebrating the good men in their life. We are back with a big week – lots of great veggies to choose from including the highly anticipated summer crops of tomatoes, summer squash, and eggplant!

There will be no flowers this week because Tally still has a bad back and needs to pull back some on all the harvesting. The flowers will definitely be back next week! Thanks for your understanding!

If you have not yet tried cheese from The Bloomy Rind, we highly recommend you do so! The goat cheese offered this week is superb – mild yet very flavorful, and wonderfully creamy. Also back this week is a selection from Sequatchie Cove Creamery, and small, family run operation just outside of Chatanooga. The choice of cheeses from The Bloomy Rind has been amazing and a real treat every week.

Earthwind Botanicals is back with us this week, with the perfect summer items of lip balms and salt scrubs, as well as her nice selection of soaps and bath fizzers!

Thanks so much for your support, and we look forward to seeing you on Wednesday!
John and Tallahassee
