In Piermont,the dog days of summer are finally upon us with brutal record setting temperatures and searing heat and humidity which completely dehydrates a person within minutes.I simply wilt on my way from he house to the car,but am really grateful for my best friend forever-airconditioning.It's been so hot that I've heard some local Piermont residents have been known to make their dinners quite literally on the go.I'm not talking tailgate parties;I'm talking pan seared salmon with crispy baked potatoes alla engine barbeque. In the early morning,sun block slathered I really like to walk the Pier in Piermont when serious walkers-not talkers-are about.They just give me a slight nod of acknowledgement,encouragement and approval.I respond in kind. Every Sunday,the Piermont Farmer's Market is open from 9AM-3PM.I look forward to the charming pop up tents which give the drowsy little village of Piermont an old fashioned kind of carnival excitement and I wonder what marvelous treats will be in store for me. It is great to fill my market bag with fresh organic produce,artesian breads and baked goods,local cheeses,wines from local vines,pestos,pickles and organic poultry from Dines Farm.And OMG those crazy delicious heirloom tomatoes! Feeling just the slightest bit smug,a little smirk of satisfaction playing around my lips,I am confident That I have done my part for the economy and for the local Hudson Valley growers,makers and creators of these healthy foods and drink to not only put food and flowers on my table but money in their pockets for their local families as well.This food chain benefits us all.The ripples from the proverbial pebble dropped in this pond do indeed spread far and wide
