WHAT’S COOKING: Zucchini with Zip

It’s that time of year – when zucchini is so bountiful that it leaves you wondering what to do with it all. These two recipes take the ubiquitous summer vegetable in new directions – one super simple (works on the grill too) and the other sophisticated enough to impress guests. Both make a great side for grilled meat or addition to a vegetarian meal.
Get the recipes.

MUSICAL GUEST NORTH: Todd Andrew Ballard

Todd Andrew Ballard is a singer/ songwriter based in Indianapolis, who combines folk, rock, blues, and country to produce a melodic style all his own. His music is influenced by the likes of JJ Cale, John Fogerty, and Jason Isbell.


It’s always good to have the popular Nick Ivanovich at the Market with his traditional Ukrainian folk music-influenced songs full of alluring minor modes and sweet melodies. Come listen while you shop!

Our musicians volunteer to perform at the Market, so tips are much appreciated!
