Fresh Harvest for July 22nd
The melons are here! Those luscious fruits of summer are at their best right now, and we have a great selection for you! Cantaloupe and watermelon are delicious and versatile – from salads to dessert to juices to breakfast. Watermelons are a healthy sweet treat – they even help to cleanse the body of toxins and lower inflammation.
Get them while you can!
They are in the “Fruits” section of the Market.
Also – it’s the last week for Blueberries!
Check out the selection at The Bloomy Rind! Burrata is in to go with those tomatoes. The rest of the really varied selection is also spectacular!
We’ve got some specials on cucumbers and tomatoes for those who want to do some summertime food preservation.
Thanks for your support, and we will see you on Wednesday!

Cantaloupe Salad with Basil, Fresh Mozzarella and Onions
A sweet/savory alternative to the traditional tomato caprese salad
1 medium cantaloupe, cut into 1 inch cubes
10 to 20 leaves of basil, chiffonaded (reserve a few whole leaves for garnish)
10 green olives, sliced
1/4 red onion, thinly sliced
1 cup fresh mozzarella balls, sliced into quarters
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons lime juice, from 1 lime
Salt and pepper to taste
In a large bowl, toss the cantaloupe, basil strips, olives, red onions and mozarella balls together. Lightly dress the salad with a long pour of olive oil and even longer drizzle of red wine vinegar. Toss with the lime juice. Generously salt and pepper the salad and taste.
This salad is great straight away but even better chilled for a few hours before serving, to allow the flavors to really meld.
