There is always fresh fruit and vegetables, baked goods, beef, kettle corn and hand made crafts. I love dealing with vendors. Seeing dirt under their nails and working with their families gives me a whole new perspective on food. We love the farmers market. I really believe that eating local and knowing where your food comes from is such an important part of who we are. If you are what you eat don’t you want to know where you come from?
|a little wisdom from our meat guy|
The first time we went we decided to buy ground beef from Barrie of Redl Farms. He and his wife drive down from their ranch near Willams Lake, BC and sell their beef to us city folks. He is a real rancher with a cowboy hat and everything!!! It changed the way I will forever view beef. The beef smells better, the color is more vibrant and it doesn’t shrink. It has this deep real taste.
This week at the market the corn was out and the peaches were fresh and the peppers were plentiful.
The weather has been amazing here lately. It was 29 C/ 84 F here yesterday. I wasn’t about to turn on the oven so I decided to use the grill. I saw these over on Joy the Baker. I slightly adapted the crumb recipe and she did hers in the oven.
These are super simple and perfectly summer. You can make 1 or 10 just as easily. Everyone loved them. I will be making these again no questions about it. You just use the bbq after you’ve grilled your dinner. Oh and you must, must have vanilla ice cream with it.
2 fresh ripe peaches halfed and pitted.
1/2 c all-purpose flour
1/2 c packed light brown sugar
1/4 c oats – quick cooking or old fashioned
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
pinch of salt
2 tablespoon shredded coconut
1/3 c tablespoons cold butter, cubed
1 tbs butter for rubbing on the peaches
tin foil for wrapping
If your grill is already on just turn in to low. If not them preheat to 300 F.
In a medium bowl mix cold butter, flour, oats, brown sugar and coconut with your hands until the butter is pea sized.
Scoop vanilla ice cream on top and serve warm.
