Here we are in July! In this month, we typically find ourselves knees deep in an abundance of vibrant, local, fresh produce. Although we are grateful for the bounty, it can be hard to keep up with the weekly greens that arrive in your CSA share, or pour into your kitchen from your very own garden.

Warmer weather means more time spent outside, and what better way to spend your evenings than behind a grill cooking up some smoky, sweet, mouthwatering meals for family and friends. Last Thursday, City Market class participants gathered at the Intervale Center down by the Winooski River for a Grilling Fundamentals class. The class was taught by our very own Executive Chef, Michael Clauss. From managing his own catering business to running restaurant kitchens, Michael had tons of tips and tricks to share with the group.

First off, we wanted to wish our entire City Market community a Happy New Year! For many, the start of the New Year is a time to reflect, reset, and form intentions for the year ahead. It is a time to move past the extra one, two, or five cookies you regretted eating during the holidays, and look forward to healthier options.

Spring is shyly peaking her head out from under the snow. In sporadic bursts of rain and sun, we can feel the warmer weather rolling in (even if only slightly). But it’s still worth celebrating a time of blooming and regrowth! My favorite way to do that? New recipes, of course!
So, what’s in season? The coming months will bring lots of fresh, bright flavors. Look for local herbs and crisp produce like greens, onions, garlic, and peppers. Spring wild edibles like mushrooms and garlic scapes are right around the corner. Fancy treating your sweet tooth? Keep an eye out for rhubarb!
