The Daily GLOB


Happy Wednesday!


GLOBmaster2017Good morning GLOBers and a very  Happy Wednesday to you all.  I have to admit.  I have become a serious cupcake lover.  My favorite is the petite two, or three bite size Patticakes cupcakes with delicious, creamy frosting and moist, flavorful cake bottoms.  Oh, sorry since today is National Cupcake Day I was whisked off to another world where sugar isn't such a necessarily a bad thing . . .   Were you aware of the fact the first mention of a cupcake recipe goes as far back as 1796. Amelia Simms wrote a recipe in “American Cookery” which referenced, “a cake to be baked in small cups”.  Well did you know the GLOB Master suggest Patticakes Downtown on the Bo Diddley Plaza is the first place to begin your Farmers Market adventure with a yummy cupcake and you pick the flavor.




It is Union St. Downtown Farmers Market Wednesday and according to Market Elder Charlie Lybrand things are heating up with a variety of peppers both hot and spicy;

061318MarketVENDORAn abundance of peppers-both sweet and spicy- are now at the market. Spaghetti and butternut squash are now in the mix as the month of June progresses. The proliferation of eggplant heralds the evolution to the summer season. Local sweet corn is also now being harvested.. Another omen of the looming summer heat is yard long beans which are available. Organic cherry and plum tomatoes are plentiful. Watermelons have joined cantaloupes in increasing quantities. Peaches are still being picked. While displays of beautiful bouquets in a myriad array of colors and styles can be found. Potatoes are plentiful also along with an abundance of squash. Cool weather cauliflower, kale, collards and turnips are still being harvested while ever increasing amount and varieties of beans and blueberries continue the showcase of warm weather crops. Strawberries are nearing the end of their season.  Grass fed beef and chicken as well as  seafood are offered every Wednesday. An ever increasing variety of vegan prepared foods is also available. Check the market's products page for a definitive listing of produce. Organic coffee and kombucha are served each week along with a wide variety of prepared foods.
