Please see below this week’s Hollywood Farmers Market newsletter. See you all tomorrow.

Prime Time at the Market this Saturday
Several of our vendors took a well-deserved break last Saturday to celebrate the 4th of July, but don’t worry if your favorite vendor was missing!  They will be back this Saturday!And now that we’re in the dog days of summer, we can look forward to seeing our vendors selling the produce we love the most—like tomatoes, basil, sweet cherries, corn on the cob, cucumbers, melons, blueberries, and more. Not only are these fruits and vegetables mouth-watering, they are loaded with nutrients!Are You a Winner?
If you won one of the gift certificates that two of our sponsors donated, and you haven’t picked it up yet, this Saturday’s market is your opportunity. Come by the market table and tell our market manager, Julie Beavers, that you’re a winner, and she’ll give you the certificate.

It’s Tea Time


For many people, iced tea is the go-to drink during summer. Now you can come to the market and get some refreshing iced tea from True Honey Teas, a new vendor that offers a line of single-serve teas sweetened with natural local honey.

Chris Savage, founder and president of this family-owned business, says this about his teas: “Our product is truly unique. We are the only organization in the world to put honey sweetener in the pod with the tea.”

The “pods” are compatible with brewing machines that accept Keurig K-cup portion packs, and, if you don’t have this machine, you can buy jars of pre-made tea at his table. The following types of tea are now available: Earl Grey, spiced chai, English breakfast, and green tea. Herb teas will soon be added to the lineup

Recipe of the Week: Baked Striped Bass with Zucchini and Herbs 

zucchiniMakes: 8 servings
Serving size: 1/2 cup


• 2 1/2 tablespoons butter, divided
• 1 cup chopped leeks
• 1/2 cup dry white wine
• 1 1/2 pounds striped bass fillets
• salt and pepper to taste
• 6 teaspoons fresh lemon juice, divided
• 1 zucchini, thinly sliced
• 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
• 2 garlic cloves, minced
• 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
• 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
• 1/4 cup water

Lightly grease a baking dish with 1/2 tablespoon butter. Add the chopped leeks and wine to the dish. Place the fish on top of the leeks and dot with the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter. Sprinkle the fish with salt, pepper and 2 teaspoons lemon juice. Bake at 425 degrees F for 15-20 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork. Baste once or twice with pan juice.

While the fish is baking, combine remaining lemon juice, water, parsley, garlic, oregano, and thyme in small saucepan. Add sliced zucchini to the herbs. Cook everything over a medium heat until the zucchini is just tender but still a little crunchy.

When fish is done, transfer the fillets to a serving dish and add the baking juices to the saucepan of herbs and zucchini. Heat the juices until the liquid thickens slightly. Top the fish with zucchini and drizzle with the sauce.
