Its Farmers Market Season

I’m super excited to say that I am at my local Farmers Market every Wednesday this year through October. I love this! I am totally in my element connecting with my customers and other vendors who I consider wonderful friends.

I get to sample all my peanut butters and honey, share and receive recipe suggestions and meet all kinds of people from near and far. It’s GREAT!!

Some days I’m under a downtown canopy and others I am under my own so I’m still figuring out what set up works best with what I have to work with. It gets tricky on those windy days, so packing tape and string come in handy to keep everything secure.

My spicy peanut butter seems to be a big hit.  With the right mix of Korean red pepper, cayenne pepper and ginger powder it has a nice heat that burns on the way down. This peanut butter can be heated to make a creamy peanut sauce consistency that’s delicious in any Asian dish or drizzled over roasted broccoli and asparagus. One of my customers said she mixed it with lime juice and made a chicken marinade. Grilled the chicken then brushed more spicy pb and lime mixture over it before serving. Sounds incredible!

Another cool thing about the market is all the great finds! I found these two cuties a couple booths down from me. The perfect plant, they don’t need regular watering.

So if you ever find yourself in Holland Michigan on a Wednesday come to the Farmers Market. Say hi, sample the wonderful products West Michigan has to offer and explore our wonderful town on the water.
