Saturdays at Uptown…

June 23, 2017

John’s Amish Country is your summer go-to for fresh organic fruits and veggies for the rest of the summer season.  John’s Amish will have all of your summer favorites from McClendon’s Select at the Uptown Saturday markets.  And with the market now moved indoors, you get to enjoy farmers markets during the summer without the summer heat. Tomorrow at the Uptown Saturday market John’s Amish will have a beautiful selection of heirloom tomatoes at special pricing right now from McClendon’s Select.  The tomatoes are at the height of their season right now and are so wonderfully flavorful.  There will also be a selection of yellow seedless watermelons, fresh basil and cucumbers, along with a whole host of other organic goodies from the farm.  Head to Uptown on Saturdays for your summer shopping!

Last Wednesday of the season…

Tomorrow will be the last Wednesday market for McClendon’s Select for the season.  We will be at Uptown; however, due to the heat advisory, the market will only run until 11:00am.  We will still be bringing plenty of summer goodies with us, including watermelon, heirloom tomatoes, summer squash, basil and the last of the organic sweet corn, along with all sorts of our packaged items to stock up on for the summer.

John’s Amish Country will continue to sell McClendon’s Select produce at the Uptown Saturday markets, which have moved inside for the duration of the summer so you can enjoy the air-conditioning.  The Uptown Saturday market is now in Building B at the North Phoenix Baptist Church.  This is the only indoor farmers’ market in the valley and along with John’s Amish there are a number of other vendors who will be attending, so you can enjoy the full market for shopping.

McClendon’s Select will return to our regular schedule this fall.  We will post our opening dates for Uptown Wednesdays and Saturdays in Old Town Scottsdale on the blog and social media.  We thank you all for your continued support of our farm throughout the season.  You are what makes this possible year after year and we can’t wait to return in the fall.  Until then, stay cool and enjoy your summer!

Yellow watermelon…

You have to try them.  John’s Amish Country will be bringing these along with a beautiful selection of heirloom tomatoes and organic sweet corn, everything you need for a colorful summer spread.

And good news… the Uptown Saturday Farmers Market will be moving indoors tomorrow.  Just in time to avoid the heatwave, the market will be inside from 8:00am to noon, so you can shop in the only air conditioned farmers market in the valley.  The Uptown market will remain inside Building B at the North Phoenix Baptist Church on Saturdays throughout the rest of the summer.

Come stop by Uptown tomorrow!

Shishitos at the market…

shishito

The Shishito peppers are now in season and bigger than before.  These peppers are my summer go to appetizer.  Easy and quick to sautéed or grill, they only need a little sprinkle of sea salt and are then ready to serve.  We will also have a large selection of those wonderful heirloom tomatoes and organic sweet corn that were a hit last week. Stop by the Uptown Wednesday market tomorrow to pick some up!

 

This Saturday at Uptown…

Tomorrow at the Uptown Saturday Farmers Market John’s Amish Country will have these wonderful Sungold Tomatoes.  I can not get enough of these during the season.  They have so much flavor, I end up eating them right from the bowl as a I am cooking dinner.  Sungolds are added to everything I cook, from a frittata or risotto to salads and pastas, because they bring so much to a dish.

heirloom tomatoes

John’s Amish will also have a selection of our wonderful heirloom tomatoes that come in a variety of colors.  They have such a great flavor and beautiful color all the way through, they put any others to shame.  John will also be bringing our organic, non-GMO, sweet corn.  This corn only needs a moment on the grill or in boiling water before serving.  We like to dress it up with a little balsamic, olive oil, mint and parmesan, but truthfully it doesn’t need anything.  Get to Uptown early to pick up yours.

The best of summer is coming to the Uptown Wednesday Farmers Market tomorrow.  Heirloom tomatoes and organic sweet corn are in full harvest right now.  Both the tomatoes and corn are so fresh and flavorful you don’t have to do much to enjoy them.  Make sure to come to the market early, since both are pretty popular.  See you tomorrow at the market!

McClendon’s Select is still available on Saturdays!  We will not be back to the Scottsdale market until this fall, but until then you can find our produce at the Uptown Saturday markets.  Located at the North Phoenix Baptist Church off of Bethany Home Road and Central Avenue, John’s Amish Country carries our produce at this market all year long.  During the summer months the market is even moved indoors, which makes shopping more pleasant when you can be in air conditioning.

And, for a few more weeks, McClendon’s Select will continue to be at the Uptown Wednesday market. We will be there on Wednesdays through June 21st.

Come stop by the Uptown Farmers Market!
