What’s New at the Farmers Market — June

What’s New at the Farmers Market — June

Pulido Farms, Jurevich Farm and B & R Farms will have fresh Blenheim apricots for sale this month — Blenheims are the gold standard for apricots with their luscious, honey-like flavor. There are no other apricots like them — and unfortunately, Blenheim apricot production is on the decline in California due to foreign imports of Turkish apricots. Blenheim apricots are delicious to eat out of hand or to make into jam or preserves.

Locally grown and milled grains are now available at T & L Coke Farm, including organic rye flour, semolina, wheat flour, and corn meal (coarse and fine ground). Be sure to check out our new recipes this month for rye bread and cakes (see below), how to make fresh semolina pasta dough, and corn breads.

Berries! Berries of all varieties are in — olallieberries, boysenberries, loganberies, marionberries, and raspberries! You’ll find berries at Borba Farms, Mello-Dy Ranch, and Prevedelli Farm.
