Fun Facts About … Strawberries!!

Did you know that strawberries are not technically berries?  Berries have their seeds on the inside.  But, strawberries have their seeds on the outside.  Technically, it is each tiny seed that is the “fruit” of the strawberry plant (and a single strawberry can have up to 200 seeds)!  The yummy, fleshy part that we eat is just the receptacle for the “fruit.”  Fascinating!  Strawberry season is moving north, so while we’ve all been enjoying the strawberries from our Northern Neck, Virginia, farmers — Barajas and Linda Vista, — our Pennsylvania vendors — Twin Springs and Kuhn Orchards — have strawberries coming in season now too.  So, more strawberries for everyone!!  Come and get ’em at Barrett Elementary School on Saturday, June 5, from 8 a.m. to noon.  And don’t forget your pre-orders for Saturday pickup! We’ll see you at the Market!


Market Policy Reminders:

  • Face coverings are recommended for all persons in the market.
  • Please don’t come to the market if you are unwell or at high-risk.
  • Wash your hands thoroughly as soon as you return home.
  • If you have any concerns, don’t hesitate to ask one of the market managers.

VENDOR PROFILE

Located in Arlington, Virginia, Roots ‘n Shoots is a woman-owned, small business that provides microgreens and garden plants for the DC, Northern Virginia, and Maryland area.  If you haven’t yet discovered the nutritional value and just plain deliciousness of microgreens, then you are in for a treat!  Microgreens are tiny, nutritious, and delicious vegetables that add beauty and flavorful interest to just about any meal. They are harvested just before or as the first true leaves emerge, so they pack all that color, taste, and nutrition into their miniature version. They are extremely versatile. Home cooks, smoothie-lovers, and Michelin star chefs all use microgreens for their gorgeous colors, delicate textures, distinctive flavors, and power-packed nutrition.  Research from the University of Maryland and the U.S. Department of Agriculture shows that microgreens can pack from 4 to 40 times the nutrients of the mature plant.  Roots ‘n Shoots grows an amazing variety using certified natural grower methods and is dedicated to getting microgreens into every refrigerator in Arlington, donating as much as half of what they sell to local food pantries.  Taste the green at Roots ‘n Shoots this weekend!!

Loosening COVID-19 Restrictions!

With the recent announcements from the CDC and the Governor, the Lubber Run Farmers Market is loosening a few restrictions for this week’s market.  Please be patient with us; we’re doing our best to keep up with the rapidly changing environment while making sure that we are compliant with all relevant laws and maintaining a safe and healthy market space for our community.  Starting this weekend, consistent with CDC and Virginia guidance, facial coverings remain required for vendors, but are no longer required for those who have been fully vaccinated.  At Virginia farmers markets, however, facial coverings remain recommended for everyone, regardless of your vaccination status.  We know some of you have continuing safety concerns, have vulnerable family members at home, or just love to show off that new fashion accessory, so if you want to mask up, please do!  Eating and drinking is not yet allowed in the market space, but you are welcome to have your snack on the grassy areas behind the Market or in the areas at the front of the Barrett school outside of the Market’s entrance gates.  We will continue to require one-way flow through the Market as physical distancing requirements have not yet been lifted for farmers markets, so please exit the Market area through one of the three marked exits and circle back around to the entrance if you would like to re-enter.  Like we said, we’re doing our best!  More changes likely in coming weeks so stay tuned!  In the meantime, please come enjoy the great outdoors and get your shopping done at Barrett Elementary School on Saturday, May 22, from 8 a.m. to noon.  And don’t forget your pre-orders for Saturday pickup!We’ll see you at the Market!

Market Policy Reminders:

  • Face coverings are recommended for all persons attending the market.  Vendors are required to wear face masks.  
  • All customers should enter the market through the Barrett School parking lot entrance closest to N. Henderson.  Only one-way traffic will be allowed in the market with the exit at the end of the market at N. Park (additional “quick exits” are marked).  Once they have completed their shopping, customers can return to the entrance via the sidewalk near the school behind the vendor tents.
  • Market staff and volunteers will be monitoring how many customers are in the market at any one time in order to comply with physical distancing rules.  Please be patient as there may be an appropriately-spaced line to enter.
  • Customer may select their own produce but discussions with individual vendors should be in compliance with the 6-foot physical distancing rule. 
  • Please no eating or drinking in the market.  Customers should pick up prepared foods and exit the main market area before removing your face covering to consume your goodies.
  • Credit card payments are encouraged by most vendors.
  • Please don’t come to the market if you are unwell or at high-risk.
  • Wash your hands thoroughly as soon as you return home.

RECIPE OF THE WEEK

Strawberry Scone
Perfect for Mom’s Breakfast in Bed!

Strawberry Scones

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 8 tbsp unsalted butter, frozen
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt, sour cream, or buttermilk
  • 1 heaping cup hulled and diced fresh strawberries
  • 1 large egg

For the Glaze:

  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter; melted
  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar; sifted
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract OR 1 drop lemon oil
Strawberry Scones

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper (or lightly grease a scone pan if you have one).
  2. In medium bowl, whisk together all dry ingredients.
  3. Grate butter into flour mixture on the large holes of a box grater; use your fingers to work in the butter until mixture resembles coarse meal. Gently mix in diced strawberries
  4. In small bowl, whisk yogurt and egg until smooth. Using a wooden spoon or spatula, gently stir yogurt mixture into flour mixture until large dough clumps form (be careful not to squish the berries). Use your hands to press the dough into a ball. The dough will be crumbly at first, but as you press, the dough will come together. (If dough is too dry, add up to 2 tablespoons of milk, 1 teaspoon at a time until the dough comes together)
  5. If not using a scone pan, place dough ball on a lightly floured surface and pat into a 7-inch circle about 3/4-inch thick. Use a sharp knife to cut into 8 triangles; place on prepared baking sheet, about 1 inch apart. Or, gently press the dough evenly into the scone pan. Bake until golden, about 15 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes.
  6. In medium bowl, prepare glaze by mixing together glaze ingredients. Whisk until smooth. Drizzle over warm scones and enjoy!

RECIPE OF THE WEEK

Choose-Your-Own Herb Pesto

Pesto
  • 6 cups fresh herbs and/or greens – our favorite combo is 3 cups basil, 2 cups spinach, & 1cup arugula
  • ¼ cup nuts – such as pine nuts, walnuts, almonds, etc
  • 1 tsp each kosher sea salt & fresh ground black pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • ½ cup low flavor oil
  • ½ cup grated parmesan

Instructions:

Blanch herbs like basil to preserve its bright color:  set a pot of water to boil and either hold basil by its stem or put in a metal colander – dunk in boiling water a few times, no longer than a second at a time, just until fragrant.  Let cool and dry in a colander on paper towels.

Add all ingredients to a food processor and puree until smooth. Adjust oil, salt and pepper to taste and consistency as needed! Enjoy!

RECIPE OF THE WEEK

Mediterranean Salad with Hummus Dressing

Oregano Grilled Chicken:

  • 1 package boneless, skinless chicken breasts, 2 chicken breasts weighing 1 1/2 pounds
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped fresh oregano, or 1 Teaspoon dried
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon zest, from 1 lemon
  • 1/2 Teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

Salad:

  • 10 cups washed mixed greens, 10 ounces
  • 12 mini sweet peppers, or 1 large red bell pepper, 8 ounces
  • 1 large cucumber, 14 ounces
  • 1 red onion, 10 ounces
  • 3 cups cherry tomatoes, 12 ounces
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro, or a mixture of parsley and cilantro

Hummus Dressing:

  • 1/4 cup tahini, from roasted sesame seeds, not raw
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 Teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2–1 Teaspoon sea salt, to taste
  • 1/2 cup olive oil

Instructions:

  1. Whisk together olive oil, oregano, lemon zest, sea salt, and garlic.  Add chicken breasts to marinade and coat.  Cover and chill in refrigerator for 1 hour or overnight.
  2. When ready to make salad, preheat grill over high heat.
  3. While grill is heating, start prep.  Place washed greens into large serving bowl.
  4. De-stem and de-seed pepper(s). Cut pepper(s) into thin strips, and then slice crosswise into bite sized cubes.
  5. Cut both ends off cucumber and cut into quarters lengthwise. Slice quarters crosswise to create thin triangular slices.
  6. Slice both ends off onion and peel.  Cut in half from top to bottom. Lay each half flat side down and cut across the rounded top into thin half moon slices.
  7. Slice cherry tomatoes in half, and place all prepped veggies on greens.
  8. When grill reaches a steady 400º-450ºF, place chicken on grill, and immediately lower heat to medium, maintaining temperature of 350º-400ºF. Cook for 10-12 minutes, or until chicken loosens and is easy to turn over. Turn chicken breasts, and grill for another 8 minutes or so, or until no longer pink in center. When done, remove from grill and set aside to cool, and then cut into bite sized pieces and add to salad.
  9. For dressing, add all ingredients except olive to blender. Blend on low, and add olive oil in  slow steady drizzle, increasing speed at the end to help emulsify the dressing.
  10. Toss salad with dressing or serve on the side.

We’re Back!! Welcome to LRFM 2021!

We are so happy to be back and looking forward to our best market season yet!  This year, our fourth season, will be the biggest so far. Twenty four vendors will participate in the market, 21 of whom are expected on opening day.  See below for a quick preview of our newest vendors.  The LRFM market map will show which vendors are signed up for each market day, so bookmark us and check each week to plan your visit!

To accommodate our growth, the market is expanding to fill the northwest end of the parking lot (enters from George Mason Blvd). Although that means losing the parking spaces on that end of the market, ample parking is now available in the garage at the Lubber Run Community Center, 300 N Park. Parking will continue to be available on the southeast end of the market (enters from N Henderson).

2020 may be behind us but pandemic precautions are not! The market continues to be compliant with Virginia’s covid-19 guidance, so we still require face coverings for entry and ask that you comply with one-way directional flow and physical distancing while in the market.

Online pre-ordering for Saturday pick-up is available again this season through Lubber Run To Go!  Visit the site for individual vendor ordering deadlines.  See below for individual vendor links.  All vendors will also have grab-and-go items available.

Join us for opening day at Barrett Elementary School on Saturday, April 17, from 8 a.m. to noon.  We’ll see you (and your face masks) at the Market! 

Market Policy Reminders:

  • Face coverings are required for all persons attending the market.  Vendors are also required to wear face masks, as well as food-handling gloves.  
  • All customers should enter the market through the Barrett School parking lot entrance closest to N. Henderson.   Only one-way traffic will be allowed in the market with the exit at the end of the market at N.

Thank You and Goodbye (For Now)!

Saturday is the last market day of the season!  Through all the challenges of 2020, the Farmers Market has been a bright spot.  And for that we owe a lot of thanks, for the vendors who made adjustments on the fly but kept the fresh foods available, for our new-this-season pre-order site, for the Market Committee members and volunteers who devoted time, thought, and effort to making sure the market could operate safely, and most of all for our community of shoppers, who showed up (face masks and all!) to make our third season a resounding success.  Thanksgiving is a time for giving thanks and all of you have ours!  Mark your calendars:  We’ll be back April 17, 2021!!  Until then, make one last trip to Barrett Elementary School on Saturday, November 21, from 8 a.m. to noon.  And don’t forget your pre-ordersWe’ll see you (and your face masks) at the Market!

RECIPE OF THE WEEK

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Warm Honey Glaze

A perfect side dish for your Thanksgiving table!!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Warm Honey Glaze

Ingredients

  • 1½lb. brussels sprouts, trimmed, halved
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ tsp. kosher salt, plus more
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ⅓ cup sherry vinegar or red wine vinegar
  • ¾ tsp. crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 3 Tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 3 scallions, thinly sliced on a diagonal
  • 1 tsp. finely grated lemon zest

Instructions:

  1. Place a rimmed baking sheet on bottom rack of oven; preheat to 450°. Toss brussels sprouts and oil in large bowl; season with salt and black pepper.
  2. Carefully remove baking sheet from oven. Using tongs, arrange brussels cut side down on baking sheet. Roast on bottom rack until softened and deeply browned, 20–25 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, bring honey to a simmer in small saucepan over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring often, until honey is a deep amber color but not burnt (it will be foamy, that’s okay), 3–4 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat and add vinegar and red pepper flakes, if using, and whisk until sauce is smooth (it will bubble up quite aggressively when you add the vinegar before settling). Return saucepan to medium heat, add butter and ½ tsp. salt, and cook, whisking constantly, until glaze is glossy, bubbling, and slightly thickened, 3–4 minutes.
  5. Transfer brussels sprouts to large bowl. Add glaze and scallions and toss to combine. Transfer to platter and top with lemon zest.
