Summer's gone and there's no better way to honor the season by turning out all your favorite squash recipes, saying goodbye, and welcoming Fall. The North Park Farmers' Market is teeming with summer squash and other ingredients that will knock your socks off! 

Casseroles are always crowd pleasers- they feed the masses and leave you with loveable leftovers. Try mixing some delicious goat-cheese feta from Nicolau Farmstead with thinly sliced "eight ball" squash from Suzie's Farm and a few cloves of garlic and some green onions from the Produce Stand. Can you say perfection!?

Who can say no to fresh baked zucchini bread? It’s like cake but with half the guilt! Add dried bing cherries from Smit Orchards and a handful of toasted almonds from Hopkins AG, bake just until the loaf browns to keep it moist and sweet. You’re sure to find loads of new “friends” once the smells from your kitchen reach the street. 

How about trying an easy, raw zucchini salad? Pick a few dark green zucchinis, sweet carrots from JR Farms, and bright bell peppers from Suzie's. Grate them into a bowl, add salt and cider vinegar to coat, toss with Bari's garlic olive oil and juicy cherry tomatoes from Kawano Farms for a simple salad that's portable, fresh, and good for you!
