Jeff’s Three Things for Aug. 11
There is always something new each week to try at the Statehouse Market! Here’s what I’m checking out this week!
Wilson Farms always has interesting produce. Last week I tried a doughnut peach, a variety that has a flat, round shape. It’s also called a Saturn or UFO peach. It’s very sweet, with yellow and red skin and the inside is pale/white. Dave might have more this week. He will have yellow doll watermelons this week. An online description calls these “the earliest of all watermelons.” They’re round, about six to eight pounds, with a thin rind of deep green with lighter stripes. Once you cut it open, it’s bright yellow (not red).
Also check out Biltz Greenhouses for some outstanding peaches and the latest apple varieties, plus tomatoes, beans and more.
On the food truck side, El Venezolano is back. I had the best thing I’ve ate at the market during their first visit in July. It was their arepa called Pabellón and I can’t wait to eat it again. The arepa is a corn cake made from a special precooked corn flour and it’s stuffed with fried plantains, black beans, shredded beef and queso.
Also another truck, General American Donut Company is back and they’re not just bringing doughnuts either. I’m just going to say this and leave it there: Chicken & Waffles.
