Here’s an idea from International Palate to turn the already delicious swiss chard into a savory filling for tacos. Check out this swiss chard taco recipe developed with ingredients directly from our very own Westover Farmers Market.
The Westover Farmers Market will be conducting one of its popular raffle markets tomorrow. When you visit the market on Sunday morning and shop and purchase food items worth $5 or more from a vendor, he will give you a raffle ticket. Fill it out at the tent at the center of the market and put it in the ticket basket. Drawings will be every 1/2 hour to select an instant winner! The prizes are a collection of food gift items donated by vendors at the market, plus gift certificates from The Lebanese Taverna, one of the market’s business sponsors.
Come and enjoy the fun while you shop!
Two new vendors will be at the Westover Farmers Market on Sunday morning.
Shenandoah Valley Produce, LLC will be offering fruits and vegetables grown following the best agricultural practices. This organic producer (Mike Smith) is farming beautiful acreage east of Winchester in an area that saw action during the Civic War.
Midsommar Farm, LLC up near Lovettsville, Virginia raises flowers that are hand cut the evening before they are brought to market. The farm’s flowers are certified naturally grown without the use of chemicals or synthetic fertilizers.
Shenandoah Valley Produce can be found in the market in spot # 24, next to Mama’s Donut Bites near Washington Blvd. Midsommar Farm will be selling at the north end of the market in spot # 38 between Number One Sons and Penn Farms. You can find them on our virtual market map.
Please give these new vendors a warm Westover welcome to our market!
International Palate offers up a suggestion this week for dressing up spring onions. With a miso glaze, you can add some flare to a seasonal vegetable.
Don’t forget that the Westover Farmers Market begins its summer hours tomorrow. The market will open at 8 and close at noon. McKinley street will also close as a through street, with vendors setting up in the street. This also means the return of many of our usual summer vendors, in addition to the favorites you visited throughout the winter. See you at the market!

Speaking of “likes,” do you like pie? Livin’ the Pie Life will be returning to the market this summer! Because of their growing popularity, they won’t be able to make every market Sunday, so you should check for the “Eat More Pie” banner in the plaza. While you wait for the summer market to begin, you can read about Livin’ the Pie Life in a recent Washington Post article.
