Bill's Backyard BBQ at the Hollywood Farmers Market

Bill’s Backyard BBQ at the Hollywood Farmers Market

Bill’s Backyard BBQ is back this Saturday

Beef brisket, pulled pork, and salmon with a side of baked beans, collard greens, or coleslaw is on the menu. College Park resident Bill, our very own BBQ chef, will join us this Saturday and make our mouths water by grilling the meat and fish right on site. A visit to the market isn’t complete until you get one of his complete meals to-go, which is more than delicious.

Ever hear of Biglerville, Pennsylvania? Neither us, but this vendor comes to the Hollywood Farmers Market from this small farming community located about 15 miles northwest of historic Gettysburg. At this farm, which has been in the Tuckey family for four generations, you can find a full line of berries, fruits and vegetables as well as cut flowers. We are lucky to be able to share in this crop since the Tuckey family visits many farmers markets in Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware and Virginia.

New Vendor: Red Chimney Flower Farm 
This Bowie-based cut-flower and pottery vendor will join the market this Saturday, bringing along a variety of fresh-cut annuals and perennials, including lisianthus plants, which the Better Homes & Gardens online plant encyclopedia says “make people ooh and ahh.” For more than seven months of the year, this farmer grows more than 100 varieties of flowers, offering customers the “usual and unusual” straight from the garden to the vase.

New Vendor: Marion Johnson Crafts
Once a month, this former College Park resident (now living in New Carrollton) will join the market to offer mugs, bowls, and small paper crafts that are decorative and functional (gift-card holders, paper trinket boxes, and notepads). Marion calls her products “unique, classy-sassy, and inspired by nature.”

Featured Produce and This Week’s Recipe
Tomatoes—what else! Here’s Wikipedia’s answer to the age-old question: Are they a fruit or vegetable? “While it is botanically a fruit, it is considered a vegetable for culinary purposes (as well as by the United States Supreme Court, see Nix v. Hedden), which has caused some confusion.”

Tomato Dill Soup
(Chef Queen uh Cuisine posted this recipe on www.food.com.)


  • 6 cups chicken or vegetable stock
  • 3 lbs fresh tomatoes (or two 28-oz cans of diced or chopped tomatoes)
  • 15 oz canned tomatoes (or tomato sauce)
  • 1 carrot (peeled and grated)
  • 2 cups yellow onions (chopped)
  • 1 tbsp chopped garlic (fresh)
  • 2 tsp granulated garlic
  • 14 tsp ground allspice
  • 1 pinch sugar
  • 1 12 tbsp dill (dry)
  • 1 tbsp orange zest
  • 2 cups Half-and-Half (optional)

In large soup pot, add all ingredients except orange zest and Half-and-Half. Bring to boil, reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring often. In batches, ladle hot soup into blender and puree until smooth. Return back to soup pot and add orange zest and Half-and-Half (if using).

Bring back to simmer and serve.

A Little Correction

Last week’s newsletter announced that Chris Knits would be joining our market, and she did—complete with knitted catnip toys and baby clothes. But Chris Knits isn’t the exact title of her efforts—it’s Christiane’s Designs, and her name is spelled Christiane, not as it was spelled. Apologies to Chris for botching her name!
