I love making up new words and “eggstraordinary” sure fits the market this Saturday! Our little market now has two farmers bringing eggs! That might not sound exciting to most folks, but when you are a 100% homegrown/produced farmers market it is quite thrilling to have a new member with a product that everyone loves. And, who can resist a farm fresh egg. There's nothing better except when you serve them with home baked bread and homemade jam! Geez, I forgot another “eggstraordinary” favorite...how about a fresh asparagus frittata with sliced spring strawberries on the side. Or maybe an herb seasoned omelet in a bag...something the kids love! Yup, eggs are a good thing and we'll have them Saturday at the market!
The sun is supposed to be shining for most of the weekend and we sure will welcome that after two weekends of rain and wind! It makes for a perfect time to think about grilling out. How about a juicy ASH Free hamburger, topped with spring onions and crisp lettuce, nestled in a home baked herb bun. Yum, I can taste it already and you haven't even started the grill! A little bird told me that we might even have the first local tomatoes of the year this week!!! There won't be many, so shop early.
So, what else will you be able to find this week at the market? How about some beautiful hanging herb baskets, tomato and pepper plants...even some heirlooms! Maybe a daylily or a giant elephant ear to add some color and excitement to your yard! Don't forget the hand blended herb seasoning or homemade soaps! And, who could forget the beautiful cut flowers and the wonderful honey! Heck, you'll even be able to find pepper jelly and zucchini breads and cakes with a bit of chocolate added to them! How about this for great...I was just notified that one of our farmers will have bunches of Asian greens available! And, sugar snap peas, green garlic and kale! It just keeps getting better.
For a small market, we sure do have a bunch to offer. And, the great part is...it's all grown, raised, baked or made by our farmers! We guarantee that and take pride in knowing that when our customers shop at our farmers market they get to meet the real farmer. We think that's what a farmers market is all about!
