ARRIVING WEDNESDAY: Okanagan Black Plums

Juicy, black plums are arriving to our market on Wednesday August 5th (note: expect these plums at the market by the afternoon on Wednesday).

This variety of Okanagan plums has a somewhat tart to sweet flavour. Enjoy by removing the pit and use as an ingredient in pies, salads, puddings, desserts, or jams and of course for eating fresh.⁠

Update: Murray’s Corn

Murray’s Corn Field (just behind our market) is coming along nicely…and a little later in the year than usual due to a wet start to the season. Check out this close up showing the growth of the cobs on the stalk.

We do have delicious local corn at the market, fresh from Abbotsford to enjoy in the meantime! ⁠

Who’s excited for the harvest?⁠

RECIPE: Blueberry Basil Pizza

Ralph’s blueberries will be finished for the season in the next week or so! We are sharing a delicious recipe from one of our customers, Christine. B. Enjoy!

INGREDIENTS

1 Indian Delight Naan bread
3 Tbsp goat cheese
1/2 cup Blueberries
6 Basil Leaves (fresh), sliced thin and divided
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella

DIRECTIONS

Spread the goat cheese on top of the Naan bread.
Sprinkle on blueberries and half the basil.
Top with mozzarella
Heat to just melt the cheese on a BBQ, broiled in a toaster oven or in your regular oven until the cheese is golden brown. Top with remaining fresh basil and enjoy.

Pro tip: If you want to enjoy this a little more sweet, drizzle honey or balsamic reduction over top.

Blueberry Season is here and I am ALL FOR IT! We used to pick blueberries as a kid at my grandmothers and I didn’t mind them, but they were never my favourite. 4 years ago when I was pregnant, I had bought a case of Blueberries from Ralph’s Farm Market and had the intentions of sharing with my in-laws and freezing a few. Now I don’t know what Ralph’s growing secret is, but Ralph’s Blueberries were nothing like I had before. BIG, plump juicy berries with just the most beautiful flavour. I probably ate a pound in the car on the way home, and I never actually ended up sharing them with anybody. Now I buy them annually, freeze a ton to last the year, and use them in a variety of recipes so I can enjoy them with my family during the growing season (yes, now I share!)

Blueberry Basil pizza is the new appetizer/lunch/dinner that you didn’t know you needed to try. I cheat on the crust by using Indian Delight Naan bread, and its super quick to make in 10 minutes or less. If you make one new recipe this year, make this one!

COMING SOON: Full Service Butcher

As many of you know, we are making some exciting changes at our Meat Shoppe, welcoming Meridian Meats and Seafood to Ralph’s Farm Market this Fall! ⁠

This transition will allow us to grow our selections while taking a more personalized and educated approach on how we serve you. This late August/September we are doing some renovations along the far-left wall of the market. ⁠

Look forward to the installation of an old-fashioned over-the-counter service meat counter, reminiscent of a time when people knew their meat-cutters and butchers by name. ⁠
