Yippee! It looks like perfect weather for our first outdoor market of 2013! That means that the bounce house the Lutes Foundation helped us buy will be open for kiddos to amuse themselves while parents shop. (There will be no formal supervision, so we ask that parents take responsibility for their children’s behavior.)
T-shirts and tanks will be for sale at the Market Booth, where you can enjoy a free cup of Night & Day Coffee. Come browse and say hello, while enjoying Judith Giddings on the mountain dulcimer.
Starting this week the Friday Market Café is open for business. The Café will be based in the Parish Hall kitchen with indoor and outdoor seating available. The Friday Market Café will be open every Friday except the last of each month, when there will be a hot cart as in previous years.
Run by the chefs of the St. James International Dinner Series, the cafe fare highlights ingredients from market vendors. Regular weekly items include Sylvia’s Chicken Salad and Supreme Grilled Cheese made with Shannon’s Sourdough Bread, Early Spring Mix Salad with choice of Miso Ginger, Greek Vinaigrette, or Poppy Seed Dressing, Spicy Hummus Wraps, Tomato Basil Soup, variety of just baked desserts and freshly brewed Sweet Iced Tea.
Spring Meadows Farm joins us for their first market of the season, with lovage, watercress, miner’s lettuce, and wild leeks. The Herb Corner will be bringing plants only–and lots of them–to the market Friday: herbs, veggies, and some flowers. Yorkshire Meadows will have the usual array of sauerkraut, jams—including peach this week!—scones, and Scottish shortbread cookies. If you are interested in learning how to knit socks, make felted hats or spin wool into yarn then stop by the Yorkshire Meadows booth and sign up for a class at Liz’s Knitting Shop.
The regular wonderful motley crew of vendors will be there with a variety of greens, meats, baked goods, cheese and ice cream, frozen ricotta-based foods, granola, goat milk soap and salves, salsa, and more.
Come celebrate the pleasant weather with good food and good friends. We’re here every Friday 3-6 pm at St. James Episcopal Church on Rt. 6 one block east of Main Street.
