Market is full of good things this week! Stop by for our cooking demonstration and recipe tastings, and stick around for all of the freshly harvested produce, pasture-raised meat, handcrafted meals, sweet treats, local beverages, and gifts your spring table could wish for.
Bonlee Grown Farm called this the sunsetting of the spring season, and we think that is the perfect way to describe the bounty brought to you by our farmers this week. On the cusp of warm summer, we have all the tender lettuces and spring favorites that make this season special, while welcoming new summer season items every week. Did you know you an already find vine-ripened tomatoes, yellow summer squash, and sugar-snap peas at your farmer’s table? While we eagerly await all that summer has in store for us, we are grateful for the spring harvest and celebrate all that our farmers and creators have delighted us with this month.
