New, Delicious Fall Produce Arrives at the Market

 2014-11-09 12.15.202014-11-09 12.17.21 2014-11-09 12.12.10

Take advantage of the changing season by enjoying some of the Market’s most fresh fall produce!  Prepare some fall flavors with squash, macadamia nuts and other delicious farm fresh specials.



The RSF Fresh Market Recipe of the Week is…
Roasted Delicata Squash

RSFFM Roasted Delicata-SquashWhat You Will Need and Where to Find it:

  • 1.5 lbs Sweet Dumlping delicata squash (Good Taste Farm)
  • 2 tbsp Spanish Olive Oil (Thyme of Essence)
  • Seed Salt (Be Runa)

To Prepare:

2014-11-09 12.32.46Preheat oven to 425 degrees.


With a sharp knife, cut delicata in half and scoop out the seeds with a spoon.  (You can save the seeds and prepare them like pumpkin seeds if you wish).


Cut each half into 1/2 inch segments, creating moon-shaped pieces that have slight bumps around the curve.


Arrange the pieces in a single layer in a metal baking pan and coat in 2 tbsp olive oil. Too much oil can make the squash soggy. Season gently with the Seed Salt.   Try to maximize the surface area of the squash touching the pan. The browning only occurs where the squash and pan meet.


Place in oven and roast 10 minutes. Using a spatula, turn the squash in the pan so that the light sides are now touching the pan and the brown sides are facing upward.


Continue roasting, turning every 7-10 minutes until both sides of the squash pieces are golden brown and the texture is soft all the way through, about 25-30 minutes.  Additional seed salt if needed.


Serve as a side dish with steamed broccoli from Sage Mountain Farms and to fresh Salmon from Fathom 5!

Meet Helen Woodward Animal Center’s 5-month old, 5lb Pet-of-the-Week, Snowstorm! Don’t let his name fool you, this Chihuahua blend doesn’t stand for dreary days! You’ll find that sunshine bounces into the room right behind his wiggly tail, and that his kiss-filled “hellos” turn any frown upside-down. If that doesn’t brighten your day, he’ll dance until you giggle, cuddle until you’re warm, and stop at nothing to make sure you know that he loves you.

Snowstorm is waiting to meet you at Helen Woodward Animal Center. He has been altered and is up-to-date on all of his vaccinations.  His adoption fee is $399, and, as with all pets adopted from Helen Woodward Animal Center, he is micro chipped for identification.  As an added bonus, he also come with two free passes to Sea World!

Helen Woodward Animal Center is located at 6461 El Apajo Road in Rancho Santa Fe. Kennels are open daily Monday through Thursday from 12pm to 6pm; Fridays from noon to 7pm; Saturdays 10am to 6pm; and Sunday 11am to 6pm (last application accepted 15 minutes before closing).”
