The weather’s perfect for relaxing at our picnic tables and enjoying a grilled-to-order burger, chicken teriyaki, or portabella mushroom sandwich from Hobson’s Choice. Chris’s Kitchen brings an array of preserves, plus tasty jalapeno pepper jelly and Cowboy Candy – pickled jalapenos! Looking forward to a festive market!
