At the Market, Saturday June 29th 9AM – 1PM

 

What better way to enjoy the summer heat than with a little escape to the market for some garlic scapes! These versatile (and fleeting) veggies can be found this Saturday, as well as an abundance of other produce to create yummy summer dishes. Perhaps saute some scapes and fresh chard with olive oil and a dash of salt. So good! Also swing by and grab a loaf of wood-fired bread (and amazing hoomoos or pesto) to enjoy with a creamy camembert or chevre. Read below to see what’s in store for this week’s market!
