I can now say, unequivocally, that spring is here. Finally. Our local farmers’ market is OPEN. It’s a small market, about 15 vendors set up in the parking lot of the local library, but I love it and from May through December I count on it for vegetables, fruit, meat, eggs, and essentials such as cheese curds and whoopee pies. This is John, whose Small Pond Farm has great greens. Below are a few shots I snapped this morning. I’m happy to see Twin Springs Fruit Farm in its usual spot. The dairy ladies from Misty Meadow Farm Creamery (my source for those cheese curds and, now, drinkable yogurt) are back, and so is Laurel Grove Farms (spring onions and strawberries) and Valentine Country Bakery and Meats, with its beautiful pies, plus grass-fed beef and veal, lamb, pork and chicken. And eggs. And coconut cake. New this year: a vendor who sells borek and baklava. YES. Enjoy the pics. Alla primavera!
Today’s haul: Tomato plants, asparagus, spring onions, drinkable yogurt, eggs, spinach, cheese curds, strawberries, radishes, spinach & cheese borek. What would you do with these goodies?
