As the Tuesday Market winds down....

....fresh fruits & vegetables are still available.  The market is still open for business, offering warm prepared food, fresh produce, a little music and a friendly atmosphere.  Gifts are available as the holiday season approaches.  There are just three opportunities left to enjoy your community market.

Featured artist this week is local singer-songwriter, Chaquis Maliq.  Check Ms Maliq's website to sample her music and learn a little about her music & bio:!__cmaliq

Be sure to join us for the last market on October 30th.  Bring your little ghosts & goblins to enjoy the last market of the season with a Halloween parade of costumes.  Mid-Atlantic Center for the Performing Arts will lead the Monster Mash through the market.
Healthy treats will be served!

Egg Plant from Zahradka's Farm

Egg Plant Parmesan

healthy eating - low fat recipe


  • 2 eggplants, (about 2 pounds total)
  • 3 egg whites
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 cup fine dry breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese, (1 ounce), divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup slivered fresh basil leaves
  • 2 1/2 cups tomato sauce
  • 3/4 cup grated part-skim mozzarella cheese, (3 ounces)


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat two baking sheets and an 8-by-11 1/2-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Cut eggplants crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Whisk egg whites and water in a shallow dish until frothy. Combine breadcrumbs, 1/4 cup of the Parmesan, salt and pepper in another shallow dish. Dip the eggplant slices into the egg-white mixture, then coat with the breadcrumb mixture. (Discard any leftover breadcrumbs and egg white.) Arrange the eggplant slices in a single layer on the prepared baking sheets. Bake for 15 minutes, turn the eggplant slices over, and bake until crisp and golden, about 15 minutes longer.
  3. Stir basil into tomato sauce. Spread about 1/2 cup of the sauce in the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Arrange half of the eggplant slices over the sauce, overlapping slightly. Spoon 1 cup of the remaining sauce over the eggplant and sprinkle with half of the mozzarella cheese. Add a layer of the remaining eggplant slices and top with the remaining sauce, mozzarella and Parmesan. Bake, uncovered, until the sauce bubbles and the top is golden, 15 to 20 minutes.
