Successful Buckeye Farmers Market ~ Farm Dinner ~ Veggie List 1/24/15

It’s cauliflower season. Snowball will be ready for the tables this weekend, come and get it.

Wow!!!  It was a fantastic and very successful first day for the City of Buckeye’s Farmers Market.  I would like to say thank you to Doug Strong for his professional services making the market a new favorite destination for the citizen’s of Buckeye and beyond.  All of the vendors were very happy with the towns response.  Also, keeping the market a quaint size reflects the atmosphere of the city itself.  Buckeye, AZ is a large city by land mass and has a small town ambience which makes the market a very special place to visit.  Next month the Buckeye Farmers Market will take place on February 28.  Market time will stay the same, 9 to 1 p.m.

Another date to keep in mind is March 21, 2015.  The farm fund-raiser dinner will take place on Saturday beginning at 3:45 p.m.  This fundraiser will help Tonopah Rob buy more fruit trees for the farm, offset some of the new aquaponic system expense and make more improvements to the land and its surroundings.  This is very important to the farm and I encourage you to keep in mind this is a fund-raiser that is very much-needed to keep the farm successful and to offer more produce and meats in the future.  I would like to see more CSA members signing up for the dinner and give back to the farm.  Tonopah Rob’s CSA program gives a hefty bonus towards each membership year after year and now is the time for the CSA members to give back to the farm.  I urge you to purchase your tickets and come dine under the stars.  Chef Christopher Wolf and the Arizona Culinary Institute are very excited to donate their time and talent cooking up a delicious dinner from the farm.

The wine has been donated by Page Springs Winery and the Arizona Stronghold Tasting Room.  Brisket will be served and is donated by Pierre’s Prime Beef Ranch located up in the rim rock area of Arizona. And of course, all the fruits and vegetables will be freshly picked the day of the event and prepared by Chef Chris and his team.

Right now, about 20 tickets have been sold and the farm stand can hold about 100 seats.  I invite you to join us for an amazing experience at the farm and I am gently nudging you to dig into your pocket-book and write out a check for a dinner under the stars.  The cost is 150.00 per plate and 200.00 dollars for the head table. Invite your friends and other family members for the dinner.  You may come to the farm stand or a market location and pay for your tickets or mail in your check.
