Vegetable and Herb transplants!

Zang's Greenhouse... Special items for this week include, local lettuce, and local micro greens.  Rick will also have cooking greens such as kale, collards and swiss chard and fresh cut basil.  Rick will have shipped in asparagus.  He told me local asparagas is right around the corner.

The Greek Gourmet-  Mike from the Greek Gourmet wanted me to let everyone know that he will continue to bring the homemade spinach and meat pies to the market each week- in addition to 20+ flavors of hummus.  Yum!
