Morning Apple Crumble

The lack of sugar in this recipe makes this a great breakfast dish. Try both warm and cold, served with a dollop of yogurt.  You can also substitute dried cranberries or cherries for the raisins.

Blueberry Buttermilk Panna Cotta

A silky smooth treat to highlight fresh local blueberries, this traditional Italian dessert is just as comfortably befriending other seasonal fruits. In a pinch and need a dessert that's both elegant and modest? You'll find premade panna cotta in the Co-op's Grab 'n Go coolers for your next dinner party or summer picnic.

Vegetable Upside Down Cake

A delicious and nutritious alternative to a classic dessert.  This cake makes a wonderful snack, appetizer, or side dish.

Red Currant Cake

This is a versatile cake that could work well as a dessert or accompanying your morning coffee.  Also great with raspberries, this cake is a great way to use the less common red currants.

Berry Rhubarb Pops

These popsicles make the best of the early-summer harvest and are based on one of our favorite smoothie recipes. Best of all, they are 100% local! If you don't have popsicle molds, get creative with everyday kitchen items like paper or plastic cups and chopsticks.

Summertime Lemon Custard Tart

Heike Meyer, whose wood-fired ancient grain sourdough breads are now delivered to City Market from her bakery, Bee Sting Bakery, in Fairfax, teaches City Market classes regularly to share her passion for sourdough and whole grain baking. This recipe for a nut-based tart was taught in a recent class on baking tarts and pastries with whole grain and nut flours. The tart tastes like summer on a fork and is especially good with fresh berries on top!

Gingery Lemon Bars

A cheery twist on an already flavor-packed treat, these bars offer a wallop of zing. Look for local whole wheat pastry flour and maple syrup in our Bulk department!

Swedish Pancakes

These pancakes are similar to crepes and are easy to customize.  Try filling with fruits and topping with whipped cream, powdered sugar, or chocolate.

Cookie Truffles

This is a super simple, yet delectable, dessert.  Try substituting Oreos for other types of sandwich cookies, like Newman Os or Nutter Butters.

Candied Citrus Peel

These make delicious gifts for the holidays wrapped up in little packages. Chopped up small, they also add great flavor to sweet breads or muffins.
