Focus on Green Bank
In addition to our traditional Saturday morning in Marlinton, Friday, August 17, from 3:30 to 6 p.m. the Market will set up at the NRAO visitors center. This time we have a cornucopia of corn, all kinds of squash, frozen Highland trout, cucumbers and peppers and plenty of other produce. If the weather permits, we’ll serve up some live music and good-for-you snacks.
Our NRAO location is a pleasure to behold. Customers can sit at one of the picnic tables under the shade tree and soak up the county’s magnificent vistas and—we hope—delightful weather.
Calling all picklers, salsa and relish fans and anyone who knows how much better home-made pasta sauce is compared to the store-bought variety to stock up—it’s time to get cooking. If we don’t have the quantity you need, just ask. We may be able to get what you need and figure out how to get it delivered.
Because our produce is so fresh it often takes less time to cook. Fresh-picked corn, for example, is ready to eat after only three or four minutes in boiling water.
But why cook? Most folks eat uncooked tomatoes and cucumbers. But what about green beans, summer squash and sweet peppers? Take a bite. Fresh is fantastic! Most of our growers do not use artificial pesticides or fertilizers. What they grow is as good as it gets.
