While we’re embracing the transition into summer, we’re still celebrating spring’s bounty. Spring has sprung an abundance of produce that’s just waiting to be picked. Asparagus is still popping up, cucumbers are still crisp and it’s a great time to try some bright spring green salad mix.
Sip on some hot coffee or tea while you gather your weekly selection of produce, fresh baked goods, cheese, eggs and meat, natural soaps and candles, and even a vibrant bouquet of flowers for the home or office. Need suggestions on planting or recipes? Get advice from your friends at the Falls Park Farmers Market.
As always, leave room for a delicious wood-fired pizza. See you Saturday, 8am – 1pm, at Falls Park.
