        Blueberries & Raspberries!!



Drum roll, please... they're finally here!  The peaches are ready... and you all know what that means: get yourself to the market bright and early for the best selection of these sweet, juicy treats.


What's New

It's a very "fruity" week this Wednesday at market!
  • Foxes Ridge Farm will have the first of their fresh peaches this week.
  • Kelly Orchards is back for the season with fresh peaches and blueberries.
  • Gray Farm will have fresh picked raspberries, too!
With all this delicious fruit on hand, we're thinking pies and cobblers.  How about you?

Here at WFM we are fortunate enough to have not one, but two peach growers.  Foxes Ridge Farm and Kelly Orchards  will both be at the market on Wednesday with the first of their early peaches & blueberries.  Pictured above & below is from a wonderful day of picking peaches at Foxes Ridge Farm .  Simply delicious!!

Howard and Ann Stevens of Foxes Ridge Farm will be with us until October.  They'll have peaches now, plums and apples later on.  Ann and Howard sent us this note:  "We are looking forward to seeing our friends at the market.  Come early!"
Art and Jill Kelly of Kelly Orchards will be providing us with their delicious products right through the fall.  They are among the hardy folks who keep the market going all the way to our closing Wednesday of Patriots Day weekend.  Kelly Orchards will have peaches and blueberries this week, with plums, apples, pears, and apple cider coming along later.

We're thrilled to have both farms back with us for the season!





Peach & Raspberry Parfait with Salted Graham Crumble by Epicurious

A habit-forming graham cracker crumble takes peaches and cream to another dimension.

5 graham crackers, finely crushed
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 cup plus 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus 2 tablespoons room temperature
2 ripe peaches, cut into 1/3-inch wedges
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1 cup fresh raspberries
1 cup heavy cream

Preheat oven to 325°F. Pulse graham cracker crumbs, flour, salt, and 1/4 cup granulated sugar in a food processor until finely ground. Transfer to a medium bowl and add melted butter; mix until a few large clumps form. Spread out crumble on a rimmed baking sheet and bake, shaking once, until golden, 12–15 minutes. Let cool.
Meanwhile, toss peaches, brown sugar, and 1 Tbsp. lemon juice in a medium bowl. Heat remaining 2 Tbsp. butter in a large skillet over medium; cook peaches, tossing often, until sugar is dissolved and peaches are soft, about 5 minutes. Let cool slightly.
Mash raspberries with a spoon in a small bowl, then mix in remaining 1 tsp. granulated sugar and remaining 1 tsp. lemon juice. Let sit 5 minutes for raspberries to soften.
Beat cream in a medium bowl to medium-soft peaks. Divide warm peaches among bowls and top with whipped cream, raspberries, and graham cracker crumble.

     Favorite Recipes

This Blueberry Lemon Cake is loaded with 1 pound of blueberries and every bite has sweet pops of juicy blueberry and fresh lemon flavor. It's not too sweet and not too tangy, but just right. Kelly Orchards will be bringing his pearls of the season.... blueberries!
            Blueberry Lemon Cake -- makes one 9 inch round

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup  granulated sugar
  • 1 cup (8oz) sour cream
  • ½ cup light olive oil or vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 cups  all-purpose flour*
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 medium lemon (zest and juice), divided
  • ½ Tbsp corn starch
  • 16 oz  fresh** blueberries
  • Powdered sugar to dust the top, optional
Lightly butter a 9-inch springform pan and line the bottom with parchment. Preheat Oven to 375˚F.


  1. Beat 2 eggs and 1 cup sugar with whisk attachment on high speed 5 min, or until light in color and thick.
  2. Add 1 cup sour cream, ½ cup oil, 1 tsp vanilla, ¼ tsp salt and whisk on low speed until well combined.
  3. Whisk together the 2 cups flour with 2 tsp baking powder then add to batter ⅓ at a time, whisking to incorporate with each addition. Finally, add 1 Tbsp lemon juice and ½ Tbsp zest.
  4. Rinse blueberries and drain well. In a medium bowl, toss blueberries with ½ Tbsp corn starch and 1 tsp lemon juice, stirring until well combined and no dry white cornstarch remains.
  5. Pour half of batter into prepared springform pan and spread evenly. Top with half of the blueberries. Spread with remaining batter then sprinkle the rest of the blueberries evenly over the top, pushing them slightly into the batter (about halfway). Bake at 375˚F for 45 to 55 minutes (mine was perfect at 55 min), or until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Let cake rest in the pan 15-20 minutes then remove ring and cool until room temp or just warm. Serve dusted with powdered sugar.
