This week produce is entering its own.

There should be tomatoes – heirlooms are starting to arrive, cucumbers, green and hot peppers, onions, potatoes, beets, blueberries, garlic, herbs, zucchini, squash and green beans.  There will be sweet corn on Saturday! 

We’ll have the normal selection of baked goodies – breads, rolls, pasta, cookies, and pies.

There will be local honey and jellies and jam to go with those loaves of bread.

It’s summer and you surely need something for the grill! Don’t forget the locally-raised pork and beef. Duncan pork chops + grill = heaven.

And you know you will find goats milk fudge and caramels from the Ozark Yankee. Grab a cup of freshly brewed coffee from Bare Knuckle Roasting Company. And take home a bag of locally roasted coffee from them or from Three Story Coffee. Also check out the pottery and jewelry as you visit us.

We will be Downtown on Madison Street next to the Governor’s Mansion from 4:30 to 6:30 this Thursday and Saturday from 9:00 to noon, we will be at our LU Campus location – at the corner of Leslie Boulevard and Chestnut Street, next to the Community Garden.

Stock up this week as we take off next week for the holiday. We lose our Downtown location to the 4th of July celebration and have decided to spend some time with our families on the 5th.

What’s Fresh June 5 and June 7

The weather does not seem to want to be our friend this weekend. We’ve been monitoring weather forecasts for Thursday afternoon and Saturday morning. It looks like tonight (Thursday) may be ok. I’m just keeping my fingers crossed for a dryish Saturday morning. Whew. The job of a market manager is not for the feint-hearted! We have generally stayed open during rainy days unless there is lightning and high winds.

Anyway, we hope to see you tonight Downtown on Madison Street next to the Governor’s Mansion from 4:30 to 6:30 – perfect for State and Downtown employees! Saturday, weather permitting, we will return to our normal location next to the Community Garden on Lincoln’s Campus – at the corner of Leslie Boulevard and Chestnut Street.

More produce is becoming available. There should be tomatoes, cucumbers, greens and lettuces, onions, garlic scapes and herbs. I think I even saw some kohlrabi last week!

We’ll have the normal selection of baked goodies – Mae Benson let me know she’s getting lots of  ideas to test in her kitchen, so check her table for some possible new yummies.

There will be local honey and jellies and jam. The Gillilands say they will have a wild mulberry jam and a blueberry basil jam available this week.

The Duncans are both teachers in the Columbia School District. They finish classes this week. They will be attending Thursday markets starting June 26th. Until then, you can find Diana at our Saturday market. She says they will have pork steaks and ribs back in stock this week.

And you know you will find local pasture-raised beef, goats milk fudge and caramels, coffee and hand-made soaps here. Also check out the pottery and jewelry as you visit us.

See you Thursday night or Saturday morning. Keep your fingers crossed for a bit of sunshine!  SunSmiley
