Summertime

Wildwood Farmers Market on Main
16860 Main Street, Wildwood MO
Saturday, July 8th, 8:30am-12:30pm

I am hoping that everyone had a safe, fun, 4th of July holiday. For some it was an extra long weekend and for others a day off and then back to work. We enjoyed a more traditional “US of A” bbq meal on the 4th. And of course, most everything was made from local  produce and proteins. The pork steaks and brats  were from local meat producers, Stuart Farm was one of them.  Most of the ingredients of the potato salad were from our market vendors as well as the corn on the cob, first of the season field tomatoes, the baked beans had local honey, onions, bacon and my homemade mustard in them. The market fresh green beans were prepared in a cast iron skillet with onion, garlic and a little bacon as well.

I am ready to repeat many more meals in the coming weeks that will include lots of corn on the cob, tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, eggplant, melons, green beans and other fresh, seasonal, local produce and meats, cheeses, eggs, honey and herbs.

We have a nice variety of meat and produce vendors that will be coming to the market this weekend. Once the produce has been harvested at it’s peak and brought to market, our vendors need for you to take it home and enjoy it soon thereafter. Seasonal. Fresh. Local. Just picked.

Sweet corn, tomatoes, peppers, squash, green beans, cucumbers, peaches, berries and most all of the local, summer produce will now be available each week. We will also have baked goods, herb and spice blends, plants for your yard and garden, a variety of pastured meat and eggs, sweet Missouri pecans and more.
