Let us Do the Cooking

Market River Falls Holiday Menu 2019The Holidays are upon us. Making lists, making plans… this time of year is busy with traveling, shopping, entertaining. When we stop and think about what the Holidays mean to us, food always comes to mind.

Remember the days when Mom or Grandma spent all day in the kitchen baking pies? While some may have more free time than others, we know all of your time is valuable. We know you want to get out of the kitchen, enjoy yourself and spend that time with your family & friends.

The Holidays are filled with nostalgia and the need to create memory making moments. As fun and wonderful as that is, it can also feel like a lot of pressure. At the Market, we know the importance of these moments and we pride ourselves in offering delicious, healthy, traditional Holiday meals for you and your entire family. Let us take some of that pressure off of you.

Throughout the year we offer classic, custom catering menus for every occasion. Whether you’re planning an intimate dinner for two or a large party or event, we have you covered.

If you are thinking about keeping it simple with appetizers and small bites, consider our award winning mini-crab cakes, stuffed mushroom caps, shrimp cocktail, coconut shrimp or chicken satay as well as one of our many dips, spreads or a charcuterie display.

For a sit down or buffet style dinner you may want to enjoy a lasagna, an Atlantic salmon platter, an antipasto display, a beef tenderloin, our crab or shrimp fried rice or potatoes au gratin.

Of course, for Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah & The New Year you will find all of your traditional favorites along with some delightful additions.

We provide fully garnished, displayed foods on high quality disposable trays and bowls. Many of our selections can be served at room temperature or be easily re-heated as needed.

If you want to wear an apron for that Instagram picture go for it but let us do the cooking!

Start Any Party with a Cheese Platter

Market River Falls Cheese Platters

It’s Springtime. And with that, comes all things al fresco…time to live, eat and be outdoors gathered with friends, enjoying our back yards, patios and pools while relaxing into the ease of summer living.

We love an impromptu, casual fun get together with neighbors, friends, and family. That pretty much always means food & drinks and we like to keep it simple. The easiest way to feed a group of people with little to no prep time or stress is a cheeseboard. Because really, everybody loves cheese!

To create an impressive and bountiful cheese board in just a few minutes, we have everything you need right here at the Market.

If you have a wooden cutting board (or a piece of slate for a twist on a sophisticated look), a couple of ramekins, some cheese spreaders/knives & napkins, we’ve got the rest covered.

For variety and presentation, we recommend you mix together hard & soft cheeses. Some of our tried-and-true favorites:

  • Aged Manchego, Il Truffelino, Gruyere, Parmigiana, Cheddar, Roquefort (semi-hard & hard)
  • Brie, La Tur, Triple Crème, Camembert, Bûcheron, Humboldt Fog, Mozzarella (soft & creamy)

Add some meats like salami or prosciutto in piles on the board. Place ramekins of olives, or nuts in the empty spaces and add a pâté for a different flavor note and for texture. Throw in some fresh fruit, herbs and veggies for color.

If you need to feed more people, it’s easy to include some hummus (choose from our pine nut, lemon, red pepper, caramelized onion and of course traditional), our homemade salsa with chips, or some delicious Picnic Gourmet Spreads in flavors like Herbed Goat Cheese, Parmesan, Chipotle Sage & Moroccan Cilantro.

Be sure to include some satisfying crunch, with crackers from Firehook, Mary’s Gone Crackers and Stonewall Kitchen or a nice, fresh, sliced baguette.

Of course, if you find out last minute that you’re expecting more people and this snack becomes more of a meal, our prepared food offerings are so plentiful, we have you covered. You can pick up a variety of dishes when you’re here getting your cheese board essentials, or you can hop online to order everything you need, and it will be ready in 30 minutes for you including pastas, salads, fish spreads, shrimp (cocktail, peel & eat or grilled) side dishes, and of course anything you need for grilling.

We know for many, no cheese board is complete without the perfect wine or beer to compliment your selections. We have a great selection of whites, rosès, bubbles & beer, always chilled and ready, as well as a wonderful selection of reds.

“You have to be a romantic to invest yourself, your money, and your time in cheese.” – Anthony Bourdain

Best Crab Cakes Potomac

Award-Winning Crab Cakes Potomac

 

Best of Bethesda, Award-Winning Crab Cakes

We believe in the highest standards…from customer service to the top quality and variety of foods we offer here at The Market including our crab cakes which have been awarded the BEST crab cakes!

We are honored that those high standards have earned us some great recognition and awards through the years. We were recently awarded “Reader’s Pick, A Top Vote-getter as “Best Neighborhood Market” and “Best Place to Buy Prepared Foods” in Best of Bethesda 2019. A huge, heartfelt THANK YOU to those of you who support and vote for us!

Among the things we are very proud to be recognized for are our Award-Winning Crab Cakes. We have been serving the same original recipe for 18 years with the only change being we now offer a gluten-free version made with rice flour instead of panko breadcrumbs. Our crab cakes are made daily, often two times per day, and are overflowing with fresh jumbo lump crabmeat in a large 6½ oz. portion. They are SO GOOD that we sold almost 40,000 of them last year!

Did you know that the biggest producers of crabmeat in the world are Indonesia, Vietnam and the Philippines? We only source from the Northern Hemisphere, always from the Gulf of Mexico and we rotate our suppliers based on season to guarantee fresh, never pasteurized, jumbo lump meat. We get our crabmeat from Venezuela in the Winter, Mexico & Texas in the Spring & Fall and from the waters off of Louisiana, Florida & North Carolina in the Summer.

Our crab cakes are available fully cooked (just reheat them in the oven for 10 minutes), or uncooked (bake them for approximately 25 minute or until golden brown). And they are always served with our own exceptional tartar sauce, remoulade and/or cocktail sauce on the side.

And ready for this… If you really want to impress a crab cake lover, we SHIP them via FedEx Overnight!

Just give us a call at 301-765-8001 or send us an email to make arrangements.

If you’ve had our crab cakes, then you know how good they taste and we appreciate your loyal and continued business.

But, if you haven’t tried them, check this off your bucket list, so can say that you have had the very BEST crab cakes around…

We promise!
