Update for Saturday, June 7th

It looks like a beautiful weekend and we hope the you will want to get it started with a visit to the market.   We will have lots of great stuff at the market, inlcuding locally grown spring items. 

The big new item this week is local strawberries!  Get there early!  Other local items including kale, asparagus, spring lettuces, rhubarb, and tomoatoes.  Also lots of plants and hanging baskets for the garden.

We have some new cheeses available, pleases see the Wheel and Wedge update below for details.  It is a very special cheese from Vermont.

Since its Rhubarb season, I want to share an article that our friend Miriam Rubin did last week in the Post-Gazette.  We always get questions from folks on what to di with rhubarb, so this article should help. You may remember that Miriam visited the market last year after she published her Tomatoes Cookbook.  She plans to make another visit to the market this summer, probably in July.

Please come out to the market and support your local farmers.
