Heads up: In observance of Memorial Day, the Market will be closed all day on Monday, May 25.

Planning to go to the Memorial Day parade? Remember to wear sunscreen. We’ve got a variety of brands and protection levels.

Thinking about getting together with friends? We have great things for the grill, salads, beverages … and rhubarb — also known as pie plant — is starting to come in!

What’s Fresh and Local in the Produce Department?

May 19th, 2015

Thanks to the talent and diligence of local farmers, growers, and foragers, the Market has quite a list of fresh produce. Bear in mind that we may not have everything in stock at all times. But here’s an indication ….

Sprouty: asparagus, fiddleheads, leeks — wild and cultivated

Fruity: rhubarb (even if, technically, it is a vegetable)

Herby: mint

Greens: arugula, mesclun, kale, spinach

Goes with salad: tomatoes (indoor organic)

Overwintered: potatoes

Here’s to vegetables and Spring!

Mother's Day CardsHeads up: Mother’s Day is this Sunday. We have a nice selection of cards with messages that range from “Momb, you are the bomb” to “Grateful to have you as my Mom” and “We’re close knit because of you.”

If you are a procrastinator, be forewarned that we often sell out of Mother’s Day cards. :)

And speaking of families, congratulations to Dave, our sandwich maker and his wife on the recent birth of their baby girl.

From the Exotic to Local

Young Thai Coconut From the exotic to local, our Produce department has freshness and variety to help you eat your vegetables! A new arrival: young Thai coconuts (left). Crack one open, sip the liquid, and scoop out the creamy interior for a special treat. // If local’s your thing, we have parsnips, celeriac, and red potatoes from Chap Farm and spinach and carrots from Luna Bleu.

Two signs of Spring:

  • It’s already the 3rd week of April which means that this Friday is MAD! Members get discounts on their purchases; everyone gets tasty little snacks to sample. Curious about membership?  Click on the Membership tab on this website to read a description of benefits and view our downloadable membership brochure.
  • Responding to the warmer weather and the seasonal change in customers’ taste, we are moving towards one fresh soup rather than two. What hasn’t changed: the soup is made daily by Susie, our cook.

Enjoy the sunshine!
