Bexley Farmers' Market: July 13

Support Your Community at the Farmers' Market


"The Farmer’s Market really is an important place. It is more than just about saving an extra dollar or even being hip and saying you went, it is about the personal interaction with the farmers who grow your food and supporting them in their craft. You should know where your food comes from whether you grow it yourself or pay for it from the farmer himself who tended to it. It is important to invest in good farmers just like it is important to support those who do artisan work. Farmers are artisans too. Tending to crops is an art and we so often forget that. Buying local is more than just helping the economy, it is about supporting the community you live in to do what is does well."

Check out more from the Fresh Exchange on the importance of
supporting local farmers at the Farmers' Markets.

Bexley Farmer's Market: July 6

Start Summer Off Right with a Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble

"I grew up on the flavors of strawberry and rhubarb together. When I think of summer I think of these flavors together with vanilla ice cream. They are the staples of early summer days and late evenings on the porch watching the sun set just before heading to bed. The way the scent fills the kitchen on a warm evening is one of the most nostalgic scents to me. There is nothing like strawberries and rhubarb. A summer evening eating strawberries and rhubarb together is part of being a Midwesterner, there is no doubt."

Here is what you will need.

Fruit Layer:
  • 4 cups fresh strawberries sliced
  • 4 stalks of rhubarb
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp of cinnamon
  • a pinch of sea salt
  • 1 tbsp of coconut oil (lining the pan if necessary)
Crumble:
  • 1/2 cup Virgin Coconut Oil
  • 1/2 cup Old Fashioned Oats – Use Bob’s Red Mill GF ones if you want the good stuff.
  • 1/4 cup chopped almonds (you can use the ones left over from making Almond Milk)
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup Coconut Flour
To make the crisp it is very simple.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and then coat your pan in coconut oil. I used a Staub baking dish for this,

Next, slice all strawberries and rhubarb and place in dish. Sprinkle them with the cinnamon and salt. Top with the maple syrup and give them a good toss. Set the dish aside.

In a medium or small mixing bowl, place all crumble ingredients other than the chopped walnuts. Use your hands to combine and create a crumbled texture with the ingredients. Spread the crumble over the top of the strawberries and rhubarb evenly so the first layer is covered. Finish topping the dish with the walnuts and the additional sugar if you have chosen to do so. Place crumble in the oven for 30 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the fruit is bubbling. Pull from the oven and serve warm.

For more information on how to make this delicious summer dessert check out The Fresh Exchange.

Bexley Farmers' Market: June 15

Farmer's Market Use It or Lose it

From Jodie Gunders and Farmers Market Coalition, "People often talked about buying local but when it came to the crunch, either they were not willing to pay for it or did not make the effort to support local farmers' markets. We know that it's a modern world. We know that it's convenient to go to a larger supermarket, but if you can, support these producers," she said.

"We just need to support these local businesses because we're not going to be here if you don't."
