Vicksburg Farmers' Market

 Vicksburg Farmers Market Washington Streets
LOCATION: corner of Jackson & 
     *up the hill from the Depot
Saturdays, 8:00-11:00 a.m.
Wednesdays, 4:00-7:00 p.m


**Hamilton Farms will be on site to sell local honey
again this week
**Master Gardeners teach how to create
a bonsai tree
**Growers offer peppers, eggplant, squash, tomatoes,
zucchini, beans, peas, and corn from area farms. Plus
Smith County watermelons!
**Bakers sell artisan breads, cakes, cookies,
and preserves

We know that you see this call for volunteers each 
week.  And when you see the same thing over and 
over, you may grow numb to the request.  But, 
seriously, we have only 2 full time volunteers for 
the market and -- if we want it to continue -- we 
need more people to help with the market on 
Saturdays.  Come for the whole day, or come for 
part of the day, but please help us. If you shop, 
it'd be great if you could also volunteer, at least
 for a little while. Thanks to Barbara Willingham, 
who helped us two weeks ago. 

If you're willing to sign up for a Saturday shift, e-mail    


1 medium eggplant, peeled and cut
into 1/4-inch slices
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 medium tomatoes, seeded and chopped
2 tablespoons minced fresh basil
1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese

Place eggplant slices in a colander over a plate; 
sprinkle with salt and gently toss. Let stand for 
30 minutes. Rinse and drain well. Coat both sides 
of each slice with nonstick cooking spray. Place 
on a broiler pan. Top eggplant with tomatoes, 
basil and cheeses. Broil 6 in. from the heat for
 5-7 minutes or until eggplant is tender and 
cheese is melted.
