What’s Fresh – June 1

We are back! The market returns after our break to accommodate the State High School Track Championships.  Hurray!

Sometimes our lot is full at peak times on market day. Don’t despair there is parking for those willing to take a stroll. There is parking on Leslie Boulevard and int the parking lot of  Lorenzo Greene Hall, on Leslie. The market is a very short walk from both locations. Another option is the lot right off the traffic circle – you can walk across the bridge and take the greenway path for a short stroll to the market, avoiding traffic any day!

We will start our Thursday Market on June 6 from 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm.

Here is what some of our vendors will be bringing on Saturday.

Invermos Valley Farms will have pastured beef and has new offerings of summer sausage and thin-sliced sirloin in 16 oz. packages (perfect for breakfast steaks or philly cheese steaks)

Ed Rakow will have spring vegetables and greens and eggs

J&D Poultry will have  free-range duck, chicken, and eggs

Richly Blessed Farm/The Country Gals will have seasonal produce, baked goods, eggs and free-range, organically-fed chicken

Come buy your garden and vegetable plants from local farmers instead of a box store this year. The flowering plants, baskets and planters have been beautiful and the variety of vegetables is unique.
