The Market is Open!


The market is open! Be sure to pre-order your wild Alaskan salmon for pickup on March 27. Doug is delivering salmon to us just twice a year, and it may be 6 months before he returns – so get yours and order extra for your freezer!
Enjoy shopping!

Local produce available and so yummy!


We have rutabagas – and I must admit I love them. Here’s a recipe that I found…do YOU have a favorite rutabaga recipe?

Ingredients:

4 rutabagas

4 carrots

2 tablespoons white sugar

2 tablespoons butter

1/4 cup milk (optional)

Directions:

1. Peel rutabagas and cut into large cubes. Place in cold salted water, and bring to a boil. When fork tender, drain.
2. Mash rutabagas with grated carrots, sugar, and butter.
3. Place in oven at low temperature to keep warm. Cover so that the dish will not dry out. If it does, stir in a little milk.

So much great local food! Coffee is online now, as well as more produce. Don’t forget we have kettle corn, dog treats, and a wide variety of cupcakes – all new vendors this year! Add those to the great vendors who were already selling with us, and we have some seriously delicious groceries!

Which of these two scenarios sounds more vibrant for the overall quality of your life and health?

The wind on your face, the sun on your skin, you talk with a local farmer or market manager about the taste of this year’s harvest of spinach, lettuce, and beets, and the extra harsh winter we had this year and how it affected your favorite farmer

Or…

You stand shivering in the freezer section at our local mega-mart, your eyes begin to glaze over from the halogen lights and the neon-colored cardboard boxes containing substances claimed to be food products? You decide on the one with the least amount of additives and make your way to the self-check-out line, excited to get in your car and out of there.

Well, let me guess…you’d rather shop with your LOCAL farmers and pick up your LOCAL HEALTHY food at your LOCAL pickup site!

This week we approved 2 new farmers – Poor Robin Gardens and Three Tree Coffee Roasters. Both were just approved yesterday, so they haven’t added any products online just yet – however, keep your eyes open this weekend! Some of you will already know Ricardo (Poor Robin Gardens) from the Saturday market and will know that he produces some beautiful produce!

Enjoy shopping!
