Update for Saturday, July 5th

I hope everyone is having a great 4th of July holiday.  Please don't forget that the market is open as usual tomorrow.  We will be fully stocked with great locally grown items.  This will be the first week for local corn. I also expect some local berries.  Please see below for details.

An important note for next week, July 12th.  We have confirmed that noted food writer Miriam Rubin will be visiting the market.   She will be doing a cooking demonstration with recipes from her Tomatoes Cookbook.  She will also have books available to purchase.  Its really an honor to have Miriam take time out of her busy schedule to visit our market.  So please come out and visit her and help spread the word.  I expect her to be there around 9:30 but will confirm next week.

See you at the market.

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.

 

http://www.post-gazette.com/life/food/2014/05/29/Miriam-s-Garden-Time-for-rhubarb-pie/stories/201405220288

 

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

See you at the market.
