SEMAP Buy Local Update #9
Hey Everyone,
Totally Tomatoes

My gosh, the summer has almost slipped by once again, and you can tell from the hundreds of ripe red, orange, purple and yellow tomatoes gracing our growers' farmstands.  Picking is easy out there with such a great crop of delicious (and safe!) local tomatoes.  Stop by on your way home or this weekend and pick up a pint of pure summer flavor, whether you're trying a beefsteak, cherry or roma variety, you'll love the fresh, clean local flavor!

As always check out our Online Farm Guide for help with finding Pick-Your-Own (PYO), farmstands, and specialty products.

In case you haven't noticed... local food is fantastic!
These emails are designed to help you get started on your local food odysseys and inform you about the many ways you can help local agriculture, simply by buying fresh local products.

Every two weeks or so, you can expect an email updating you on:
  • What's Growin' - Local Foods that are in Season - Apples, Eggplant, Tomatoes & more!
  • Tasty News - Curious George & Cheese AND Win a Ticket to Farm Aid!
  • Where You Can Purchase Them - New Local Pasta Sauce!
  • And How you Can Further Support Local Producers - Events, Events, Classes, & More Events!
SEMAP's mission is to help local farmers achieve economic success through marketing and technical assistance.  Now, we are also increasing our public outreach on Why, Where and How to buy fresh, local products.  SEMAP's 'Buy Fresh, Buy Local' Campaign makes it easy for you to find the best quality products from our terrific local farms and food businesses--look for the our new label and taste the difference! All over Southeastern Mass., this label will be at participating farmstands, farmers markets, restaurants and markets.

But there's MORE!

Look for the 'Buy Fresh Buy Local' label, and taste the difference!

What's Growin'?

Peak harvest time is approaching, and that means you can pick up just about anything/everything you need at your local farmstand and farmers market.  Herbs are still growing strong, which will combine perfectly with Tomatoes, Squash, Green Beans and Peppers.  There are many different varieties of each, so be sure to try them all!
The farms and businesses listed below are members of SEMAP's Buy Fresh, Buy Local Campaign and Business-to-Business Network. For complete information on these local producers and MANY MORE check out our Online Farm

Cookin' Local!
CA tomatoes
Tomato Bread
Soo Easy, yet Soooo Tasty!

On a quick visit to Spain (3-day blitzkrieg!) we ate this dish every morning.  The fresh, simple flavor of tomatoes and olive oil was a great way to wake up from those crazy Spanish nights and recharge for another round.  A recipe in Kerry D. Romanielly's local cookbook, Out of the Earth: A Heritage Farm Coastal Cookbook, explains its amazing simplicity and fantastic taste.  There are no speeding Vespas, or horrible 80's music, just great local flavor!

1 fresh crusty French or Italian baguette, split lengthwise
2 juicy, very ripe tomatoes, split in half across the center
Olive oil & salt

Preheat the oven to 475 degrees, or prepare the grill.  Set out the two sides of the bread cut-side up.  Hold the tomatoes, one at a time over the bread and squeeze gently, then rub the tomato into the bread (kids love to do this part!) until both tomatoes are used.  Drizzle well with olive oil and sprinkle lightly with salt.  Place on a cookie sheet and toast in the oven until golden, or place cut-side down over medium coals to toast and color, being careful not to burn.  Serve immediately.
Makes 4-6 servings.

And Speaking of Tomatoes...check out this NEW local sauce!

Plus - Westport Rivers Vineyard to Launch 2 New Release wines at SEMAP Fundraiser!

Westport River Vineyard & Winery is excited to announce the upcoming release of their new 2007 Rkatsiteli and Pinot Gris.  Rkatsiteli has become an amazingly popular varietal from Westport Rivers. The light white that finishes with a touch of sweetness is widely planted in Eastern Europe but relatively unknown here in the States.  Pinot Gris is made in the traditional Alsatian style; it's clean, crisp, dry and pairs perfectly with the local flavors of the Southcoast.

Try the new Pinot Gris and Rkatsiteli before it's released only at SEMAP's October 4th Fundraiser, being held  at Westport Rivers Vineyard & Winery.

Tickets are $35 and benefit SEMAP.  Please see for more information, or to purchase tickets go to the Westport Vineyard & Winery Events page or call 508-636-3423.
