Blog : What's For Dinner on Wednesday

By Ali | Jul 14, 2014 | in

“What’s for dinner on Wednesday?” is an ongoing theme at the Rye Farmers Market. Every Wednesday from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. you'll find delicious seasonal recipes as well as new and exciting dinner ideas with local, fresh ingredients offered at that day's market. From flowers, fruits, and vegetables to farm fresh poultry and bison the Rye Farmers’ Market has everything you’ll need to serve up dinner not only on Wednesday night but for the rest of the week! All of the farmer's market recipes will be listed on the Rye Farmer's Market Facebook page, or by clicking here.

Leslie Stevens from Goss Farm explains that, "If we can teach people just a little about the importance of eating local food, then we are having the desired impact of raising consciousness about food sources and environmental issues and giving people more control over their food choices." This a common goal of each vedor at the market.

This small, friendly market is not limited to just food vendors, they also offer opportunities for local artists to sell pottery and jewelry. The Green Alliance booth will be surrounded by local farmers and friends from Applecrest Farm Orchards, Justin's Lobster Rolls, Brown Paw Bakery, Lilly's Place Greenhouse, Little River Pantry, The Rye Group, Zach's Farm, Throwback Beer, plus Dizzy D's Jewelry and Jane Eslinger jewelry!

Also being offered at the market is a Children’s Corner, or a safe haven for kids where a librarian from the Children's Library at the Rye Public Library will read from 2:30 p.m. until 3 p.m., followed by local bands and live music performances. Grab a slice of pizza, a bag of fruit, or a cookie and a cup of homemade soda or beer and sit under the pines while enjoying the sea breeze and entertainment.
