Fresh produce of the Week
Find melons down at Miller Produce. Maybe we don't have Rocky Ford Melons, but these are just as good. !
Inspect melons before buying. Do not purchase those with sunken areas, cuts or blemishes. Donít wash melons until youíre ready to serve them. This will decrease the chances of mold growth. Before slicing melon, wash under cool, running water. Use a clean brush to remove soil from that may be stuck in the rind. You can also use a produce wash; use as directed. Slice melon using a clean and sanitary cutting board, knife and clean hands. Once melon is sliced, it must be refrigerated or served. Sliced melon should not sit out longer than 2 hours.
Affectionately known at the market as "The Cookie Ladies", Sharon & Rebecca bring gourmet treats to the market.
They will have Zucchini Bread this weekend, made from Miller Farms Zucchini !.
