July 18 may mark the end of the blueberry season at the market. Blueberries of Daviess County says this week or next will be their last week at the market. For best selection, pre-order and remember that blueberries freeze well. The pre-order link is open until 5 p.m. today, Friday, July 17, 2020.
Please be sure to put St. Matthews Farmers Market as the location from which you will be picking up in the notes section at checkout.
How to Freeze Blueberries
- Freeze: Spread the blueberries on a rimmed baking sheet in a single layer. Place in the freezer for 2 hours.
- Store: Transfer the frozen berries to a freezer bag or airtight container. Keep in the freezer for up to 6 months.
- Defrost: Empty the berries into a bowl (to catch the juices).
Corn is beginning to make its first appearance. Granny’s Delight had a limited supply last week. Corn is currently not listed on their pre-order site but it may be added any time.
Gallrein Farms will bring corn as soon as able. This means either July 18 or 25. They won’t know until they get into the field later this afternoon. Watch our social media for updates.
The St. Matthews Farmers Market Breakfast Tent will make its first appearance this week offering hot breakfast sandwiches to go made with Garey Farms meats: pork sausage, platter bacon and country ham. Sandwiches made on a Triple J Farms homemade yeast roll and farm fresh egg, with or without cheese, for $5 for bacon or sausage and $7 for country ham. Wildflour Bakehouse sourdough sandwiches will also be offered but due to time limitations we may not be able to grill your bread.
New this year, the Breakfast Tent will sell tubs of Church Lady Cheeses homemade benedictine for $7 a tub. Cash is preferred for both sandwiches and benedictine. Benedictine is a Louisville original, a creamy cucumber spread that’s great on sandwiches, crackers, or grilled meats.
