No Mercer Island Farmers Market on Sunday, July 15th: Come on out and join in the Summer Celebration Fun!

Due to Summer Celebration, there will be no Mercer Island Farmers Market on Sunday, July 15th. Please do come on out to peruse Summer Celebration, though– you can show your Olympic Spirit! Windermere R.E. / Mercer Island is hosting “My First Garden” for the kiddos on Saturday, June 14th, as part of the weekend festivities.

To tide you over until the next farmers market, here’s a favorite recipe of mine for Summer Sensational Salsa! Pick up the ingredients at MIFM and enjoy with your favorite corn chips or Mexican dish.

Fruit Salsa

  • 2 cups of diced seasonal fruit (suggested: strawberries, peaches, nectarines, cherries, plums; pick a mixture)
  • Half an onion, chopped (red adds nice color)
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • Taco Seasoning to taste
  • Optional: Peppers to taste (suggested: gypsy peppers, poblano peppers, jalapeños)

Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. Chill for at least 15 minutes to mix flavors. Serve with your favorite corn chips, on nachos or in fish
tacos. Enjoy!
