Mark your calendars, gardeners! In early October, we will be holding a seed and plant swap at the Hollywood Farmers Market.Bring seeds and plants and swap them for other contributions. Please put seeds in a small clear plastic bag and identify them with a label. Also please label any potted plants you bring.
More details will be in next week’s newsletter. Stay tuned for the date…
Featured Vendor: Roy and RT’s Kitchen and Garden
Every Saturday morning, you’ll see many people head directly to the tent of Roy and RT’s Kitchen and Garden to purchase home-made, hot-to-serve veggie fritters, egg rolls, iced tea, and smoothies. They also sell fresh-picked and cleaned lettuce by the bowl that can be used as a ready-to-make salad.
It’s obvious from the persistent smiles on their faces that the Caspari’s are delighted to meet their neighbors at the market. Their customers are also delighted by the delicious already made food they can eat at the picnic table under the shade trees or take in a to-go box.

Recipe of the Week: Zucchini Noodles (aka Fideos de Calabacin)

COLD ZUCCHINI SALAD: Make a dressing of juice from one lemon (about 3 tablespoons), 4 tablespoons olive oil, and 1/2 cup sliced or chopped fresh herbs (basil, mint, and/or parsley). Toss raw “noodles” with dressing and let marinate for 15 to 30 minutes. Variations: Toss with three to four handfuls of lettuce or arugula. Sprinkle on 1/4 cup crumbled feta.
HOT ZUCCHINI “PASTA”: Heat a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add zucchini/squash “noodles” to the boiling water and cook very quickly, just one to two minutes until tender, but not mushy. Drain then toss with a little butter or olive oil, fresh herbs, and fresh peas or cherry tomatoes. You can also simply top with your favorite pasta sauce (or make some fresh pasta sauce with fresh tomatoes, the chopped up remains of your zucchini, herbs, and lots of garlic).
