We're also beginning to celebrate our recent graduates, Congrats goes out to all those who've worked hard and earned the honors. At market this week don't forget to look around at our artisans' tables for that perfect grad gift or card.

Bures Berry Patch
It's Memorial Day weekend! Thank you to all who've served and continue to do so. Asparagus is coming in strong this week and is great on the grill! Plus the strawberries are starting to set fruit, looks like that season will begin sometime between June 10th and June 20th. This week at market we will have farm fresh eggs, asparagus, rhubarb, pure maple syrup, local honey, and dilly beans. For more info about the Patch check out our websiteFacebook page, or sign up for our e-newsletter. We hope to see you in the Patch or at market soon! Kathy, Ed, Abby, and Ben
Carey's Greenhouse
I'll pretty much have the same things I had last week...cool damp weather means that a lot of stuff is a week or so behind. Its big, but not blooming.  I'll have hostas, lilacs, lily-of-the-valley, snow-on-the-mountain, ferns, violets, and day-lilies. 
Chestnut Hill Studio
Prints and cards from my original watercolor and colored pencil drawings include old favorites and some new.  I am exploring sky and water this year and focusing on places rather than things. An expanding line up of ceramic tiles will include mosaic back-splashes and table tops.  I am hoping to offer custom pieces made to order.
Comforters Corner Crate Company
Comforters Corner Crate Company upcycles used pallets into sturdy crates of all sizes for decorating and organization around your home.  Each crate is made by local woodworking artisan Stephen Troester, with personalized messages and stain/paint options provided by his wife Hilary.
Farmer's Daughters
Hello all you ducklings! Seems to be that's the weather pattern as of late! The rye is baled and wrapped and the cows are eyeballing the first crop on their way to pasture. Hopefully the weather straightens out and we'll get it put up before the end of next week. This week we'll be baking fresh for you: muffins, scones, possibly some raised bread, (dependent on the weather), cookies, cherry lime cake (because it sounds good!) and more! I hope to see you Saturday! Also don't forget, if you have a request of something you haven't had or can't find, let us know!
Happy Hunter Farms
Hi market friends!  Our beloved apple butter is back!  We will have a wide array of homemade canned goods, ranging from soups to BBQ sauces, salsa, relishes, and many jams and jellies.  We look forward to seeing everyone!
James Pine Valley Farm
This week I will have whole chickens, half chicken packages, breast quarter packages and leg/thigh packages.  Also I will have several varieties of cheese from Hooks Cheese Company and Brunkow Cheese Company, and lots of eggs.  Hope to see you on Saturday.

Magic Light Photography
I am planning on being at the market this weekend, weather permitting.  Once again I will have a selection of my nature and wildlife photography available as matted prints ready for framing as well as greeting cards.  All of my cards are blank inside so they can be used for any occasion.  Graduation,  and Father's Day are all coming up!  I will also have an 11x17 poster of my most popular photograph, Bucky's Twins.  I'm no longer making photographic prints of this image so this is the next best way to get an enlarged copy of this photo at an affordable price and printed locally!  My photos don't handle moister very well so I won't be at the market if there is rain in the forecast.  When I'm not at the market my cards are always available at the Mineral Point Collection located at 151 High Street.  I'm hoping that my schedule will allow me to be at the market a bit more often this year so I hope to see you under the water tower!  You can also view my work at www.magiclightphotography.com.   Thanks, Mike

Hi All!  It's another rainy Wed. but I am thinking positive for Market this Sat. May 27.  I do plan to be there, weather permitting, with LOTS of new items and hopefully a couple of dolls for sale as well (that is a little "ify" at this time).  I'm just having too much fun with new fabrics, new ideas and my sewing machine!!  So I do hope to see you there on Sat.  Do stop by and say "Hi" and chat a bit as you look over the new (and familiar) items.  Till then, Keep Smiling!   Mummu

Shooting Star Farm
Thanks everyone who braved the cold, wet weather to attend the Market last weekend! We’ve put in an order for a nicer Saturday this week, so come up to the park and stock up on Memorial weekend goodies. With this wet, chilly weather our crops are no longer ahead of schedule for the season. But the hoophouse is still cranking out some goodies. We will have a limited supply of bunched beets (in May – can you believe it?!). We transplanted them back in March and they are sizing up nicely. Also new this week is kohlrabi (standard size - not our giant variety), and a fresh crop of spinach from the field. Green garlic it ready, too. It won’t be around long. Use the whole plant in soups, pesto, or any way you might use garlic. The salad turnips are getting bigger and they are sweet, solid, and delicious as ever (still from the hoophouse). Red and French breakfast radishes are being harvested from the fields, as are heads of lettuce, salad mix, and arugula. We’ll also bring along some herbs: cilantro, tarragon, and oregano. See you Saturday! Rink, Jenny, and Charlie.
Sweet Earth Garden
Sweet Earth Gardens will be at the market this week.  We will have Alliums, Iris, Bleeding Hearts, Daisies, Lupines and Phlox.  Should be a beautiful day-see you there.
