Cheese Bread: This bread is made with a little bit of flour,and a lot of sharp cheddar cheese. Great as is or toasted.

Cheese Herb Bread: it's not just about the cheese, it is about the delicious blend of rosemary, thyme, parley and then the sharp cheddar cheese. Wonderful with an evening beverage or just to snack on.

Fresh cilantro
Menu Group: Food
Section: Herbs
Category: Cilantro

Vendor: Rasmussen Farm

Cilantro has a wonderful and unique taste, a bit like a lighter, citrusy version of parsley. Excellent and important addition to Mexican, Asian or Middle Eastern dishes.
Parsley

Section: Herbs
Category: Parsley

Vendor: Rasmussen Farm

Curly or Italian
Great in tabouleh or just about anything. Not just a garnish or flavoring, parsley deserves to be considered as a green vegetable all on its own. It is also improves the smell of your breath.

Honey, 3 lb jar
Menu Group: Food
Section: Sweet Stuff
Category: Honey

Vendor: Stone Corner Farm

"Maine Wildflower" honey. Our honey is pure and unpasteurized. It is heated during the extraction process only enough to filter it. This preserves the floral essences and natural enzymes that make honey the healthful and great tasting product that it is. Please note that all honey will crystalize. This is a natural process and does NOT mean that the honey has "gone bad". You can simply spoon it out of the container or to re-liquify it simply put the container in a pot of warm water or in the microwave on a low setting. To preserve your natural Maine honey's flavor don't overheat.

Lamb's quarters
Menu Group: Food
Section: Vegetables
Category: Greens

Vendor: Rasmussen Farm

Lamb's quarters are mild greens, a great alternative to spinach. According to Steve Brill they are "one of the best sources of beta-carotene, calcium, potassium, and iron in the world; also a great source of trace minerals, B-complex vitamins, vitamin C, and fiber." Most gardeners view them as weeds, but the fact that they grow readily doesn't keep them from being tasty--it just lowers the price.

Beautiful young onions ...reds and whites ...tender tops. Bunched in ½# bunches. We're thinning our onions ...getting ready to have a great fall harvest of storage onions that will be a available all winter. These are tender and sweet ...somewhere between "scallions" and onions!
