Last month I told you about this amazing store called Market Street. I had never been before that day and I ended up roaming the store for hours. I’m not kidding. So right now Market Street is celebrating Hatch Chile Month. Did you know that August is Hatch Chile Month? Did you know there was a Hatch Chile month? I sure didn’t. I do now though and so do you (the power of social media!). I did notice that my girl Candy was posting Hatch Chile photos today and had been out specifically to get some. I wonder what she is making me????
Anyhow, Market Street is celebrating! Whooooo hooooo I love to party! Right now they have roastings, recipes, special Hatch products and more. Official roasting dates are August 16-17 and 23-24. Most of the stores will be roasting every weekend in August. Stores will be sampling special Hatch Chile products each weekend as well (Candy, want to go?).
If you purchase fresh Hatch chile at Market Street on those roasting days, they will roast those bad boys for free!
Are you on Pinterest? Of course your are! If your not, run on over and make an account already (then follow me)! Check out the Market Street Hatch Chile Pinterest board for some delicious ideas! The Hatch Chile Queso and the Mexican Lasagna are calling my name.

I also wanted to mention the Market Street Rewards program. Members of the rewards program will have a special opportunity to participate in the “Summer of Savings” sweepstakes Wednesday July 16, 2014 through September 9, 2014 with the opportunity to win a FREE YEAR OF GROCERIES or a FREE YEAR OF FUEL. Yes…a free year of groceries or fuel. I would totally love to have the groceries! Participants are also eligible to win a weekly prize of $100 gift card in each store, each week. It’s simple, every purchase on your Rewards card earns you an entry in the sweepstakes, and guests also earn 1 additional entry for every $10 qualifying purchase.
OH, I have a little bit of insider info I wanted to share with you guys. Have you heard of Cotton Candy Grapes? I had heard of them before, but I have never tried them. I was worried that they were something genetically modified, but guess what? They are not! Cotton Candy Grapes and other innovative varieties from Grapery are selectively bred naturally over time. They are not artificially modified at the genetic level. They are also free of additives and flavor infusions. Market Street will have these grapes in store starting 8/22 through 9/5 while supplies last. I must get some!
