Kids Club Offers Free $5 Produce Coupons!

Power of Produce (POP) Club is coming to the farmers market this September! POP Club engages kids in the full market experience, trying new foods, having conversations with farmers, and buying local produce. We’ll have fun FREE activities like veggie tastings, farmers market scavenger hunts, recipes, and seed planting kits.

Each week that kids participate in the club, they will receive a $5 market coupon to spend on the fruit or produce of their choice at the market!

Power of Produce takes place each Sunday in September, from 10:00am-2:00pm. There will be a different activity each week, giving kids the opportunity to collect up to $20 in produce coupons for the month!

I was never a big fan of the bloody mary, until I had it freshly juiced tomatoes. This, right here, is the cocktail that may actually have the power to cure that hangover . . . and give you a new one, when you can’t stop drinking them!  You can make them fancy, with heirloom tomatoes, but no one will judge you if you just use whatever’s getting squishy.

1 large tomato

Half a cucumber

1 inch bell pepper

1 clove garlic

2 oz vodka

Black pepper, Worcestershire sauce, and horseradish to taste

Juice the veggies. Fill a pint glass with ice, and add the vodka. Pour the juice over the veggies, and add the condiments. Strain into another glass, or serve over ice. Garnish as you please.

Fresh veggies come together to create the most perfect brunch beverage of all time.

Suggested variations:

-For a richer red color, and even earthier  taste, add a beet

-For a spicier drink, substitute jalapeno for the bell pepper

-For a more traditional, thick texture, or if you just don’t have a juicer, use a blender
