Hope you didn’t miss this awesome article written in the Phoenix Business Journal on local entrepreneur and Phoenix Public Market vendor, Jeff Malkoon, founder of PB Americano.  While working in Uruguay he was baffled when he discovered that despite the surrounding peanut fields, locals weren’t eating peanut butter.  With a background in international business and non-profit management, Jeff set out to develop his first nut-butter recipes with the help of his mother.

We are proud to say Jeff sold his first jar of peanut butter at the Phoenix Public Market and we are even prouder to say that he has come a far way from that day.  Now selling in dozens of markets and shops all of the region, PB Americano will now be expanding into international markets and national grocers.

Crop of the Week: Squash Blossoms

Squash_Blossom_ppmKeep your eyes out for Squash Blossoms starting to pop up around the market!

Squash blossoms are the flowers produced by any number of vines. Some common examples are zucchini, pumpkin, and other various types of squash. Although considered a vegetable in culinary circles, squash are technically a fruit. Stuff the blossoms with cheese – savory or sweet – and then bake them in the oven.
