April 26 Market News

Greetings Market Friends,

nekidthruperiwinkle

Take time out to enjoy spring!

What a great month April has been at the indoor Market!!! There is a wonderful atmosphere in the Parish Hall, kind of like an ongoing family reunion. This will be the last week of the indoor market because we’ll be moving outside next week.  We’re hoping the weather will co-operate but don’t worry–we’ll be there rain or shine with wonderful fresh foods.

This week Stef from Simply Sweet will have butter pecan fudge as an addition to her regular fare of granola, granola bars, and cookies.

The Herb Corner will have their fabulous herbs, starter plants, lettuce and all kinds of wonderful gardening tips.  I planted some of their lettuce in pots on my porch and we have been enjoying it in our salads. Try starting an herb garden on your kitchen windowsill.

Hillstone Farms and Running Bear Farm will have an awesome selection of meats and sausages. Plus Running Bear will have eggs and fresh produce in season.

Have you tried homemade sauerkraut from Yorkshire Meadows? It’s packaged in individual servings as well as quart bags.

Get some bread and salsa from Glenfiddich Bakery or a bagel from Donna, some cheese from New Horizons Creamery , the sauerkraut , find some corned beef and make yourself a Reuben  sandwich. YUM

Inn to the Seasons has all kinds of frozen ricotta entrees for you to enjoy, as well as delicious chocolate fudge.

Finish off your shopping spree with a tub of homemade ice cream from New Horizons Creamery.

Your fingers are going to be sticky from all the treats you are going to try so you’d better get some homemade soap to wash up with from Always Somethin’ Farm. These soaps make great gifts too.

Want to learn to knit or spin wool from local sheep? Sign up for a class at the Yorkshire Meadows table.

So we’ll all be there at 3pm – 6pm on Friday. Hope to see you then.

Thanks so much for supporting the Mansfield Growers Market!!!
