Dear local food supporters:
Just a heads up that I will be at the Sara Hardy Farmers Market this morning–and remember–it is in the Old Town Parking Garage on 8th Street (half a block west of the Old Town Playhouse, on the north side of the street). Market runs from 8 am to 12 noon but I should be there in a little over an hour (before 7 am).
I will have all of the usual offerings (chicken eggs, duck eggs, quail eggs, pork cuts, soap, lard, worm castings) as well as some stewing/stock birds freshly processed. Details on what these are and how to prepare them can be found here. These run $3 per pound are weights range from 2.5 pounds on up to 4+ pounds. I will also scout around to see if we have any wild strawberries. I have begun soaking the shiitake logs again and hope to have more mushrooms by this Saturday’s or next Saturday’s market.
And if you do come down to the market please remember to walk completely around the concourse and check out all of the farms’ offerings. On Saturday there were so many of us that an additional row or branch was created to the east. Please check everybody out–as you never know what gifts you’ll find. And, if this market continues to grow during this time frame there will be more and more of us filling that concourse in the garage.
Thanks and looking forward to seeing you this morning!
