May 17 Market News

Rhubarb and jamsThis week come enjoy the sound of our talented youth as you shop and eat! Jubilation Choir from Mansfield High School, along with students studying harp and guitar will play starting at     4:30 PM. The Friday Market Café will be open with indoor and outdoor seating.

Highlights:

Running Bear Farm will have their lamb—roasts, legs, ground, and sausages; rabbit, and turkey cuts. For produce they will have hakurei turnip greens, broccoli rabe, tatsoi, bok choy, cilantro, chives, green onions, and spinach. Try some Asian greens this week!

Spring Meadows will have lovage and other herbs, and water cress. Rhubarb is in season so stop by the Yorkshire Meadows booth and get some wonderful rhubarb bars, strawberry/rhubarb jam or rhubarb crunch along with the regular fare of shortbread, scones and lemon or lime curd. Why not put some of Liz’s homemade sauerkraut in a crockpot with a pork roast or get yourself some hot dogs from Hillstone Farms and top them with sauerkraut?

Inn To The Seasons will be there with a new cheese product—Ricotta Salata. This is an aged and salted ricotta and used much the same way as feta cheese. They will also have all of their meat products. If you are interested in Morning Glory Muffins please email Bernard (jurkowski.virginia@gmail.com) to order them ahead of time.

Simply Sweet by Stef will have Original and Hot Pepper Gourmet Soft Pretzels, Classic PB Fudge, Crunchy Granola and Pretzel/Chocolate Pretzel Granola Bars, Blueberry Muffins/Scones and Cran-Orange Biscotti. To order granola in bulk email stefaniegreenawalt@yahoo.com.

The Herb Corner hopes to start bringing tomato & pepper plants this week to market. They will, of course have lots of herbs, flowers, hanging baskets and other vegetable plants as well to sell. The Herb Corner grows 90% of their plants from seed, so if you are a gardener who does not plant until Memorial Day, not a problem. They sow succession seedings of all their plant varieties in order to have plenty of healthy plants throughout the growing season.

Cardinal Inn B&B will not be at Mansfield this week, but we hope you will. Check the Facebook page for any last minute updates. See you 3-6 PM Friday!
