The peppers are poppin’. We’ve got red ones, green ones, and lime green ones too. As you continue to see another new variety of pepper this week, let’s do a little pepper identification.
Ace Bell Peppers: Your classic dark green bell pepper.
Lunch Box Peppers: Small dark green peppers. The sweetest pepper in the bunch, great raw or cooked.
Hungarian Hot Wax Peppers: Lime green, elongated pepper. Not as hot as its name makes it sound, this pepper has mild heat. Very good thinly sliced in salad, wraps, or on pizza.
Capperino Pepper: Red, round peppers. Moderate heat, and best known for being good for stuffing or pickling. Can be cooked or eaten raw. One farmer is looking forward to stuffing their capperinos with goat cheese and baking them.
Remember, this Sunday, May 24th is the finale market. We’ll have yoga, a farm tour & open house with founder Rick Martinez, Herbal Safety workshop and all your favorite vendors from 12-4pm. To see where your market vendors will be this summer please check out our Summer Vendor Listing.
CSA members please check the pick up schedule as the CSA share continues after the market closes for the season.
Thank you for coming out to the market this season and supporting local agriculture and our nonprofit’s educational programs!
