I’ll also have spinach, plenty of field-grown arugula, salad mix, and French breakfast radishes. We’ll also be harvesting hoophouse turnips, bunched kale, baby bok choy, and possibly some heads of nappa cabbage.  I will also have a selection of tomato plants – heirlooms, cherry, standard slicing, and a few romas. It will be a gorgeous Saturday. See you then!

This season, each week we will be featuring brownies, a different flavor each week. This week, with the kickoff of the warm season, stop over for a Double Orange Cocoa Brownie.  For those of you who haven't had this combination, you're missing out!  Also this year we will have a decorated cupcake (for a special someone or just a fancy treat for yourself).  This week will be Cookie Dough Cupcakes.  For a taste of yesteryear, also featured weekly will be hand pies.  This week let's start off simple with an Apple Cinnamon variety. 
Don't forget to stop by for the favorites: Scones (asparagus bacon, anyone?) Muffins (lemon blueberry and some friends)
Snack/Dessert Bars (chocolate toffee, cranberry, etc) and more!  I'm anticipating good weather Saturday, so come on out to Water Tower Park!

Shooting Star Farm
Spring has arrived! It’s hard to believe we had snow on the ground just two weeks ago. It’s been a mad dash to get plants in the ground, and everyone’s asking if there will be any produce for the first Market.  Thank goodness for a hoop house chock full of spring veggies. Although it’s unheated, the air and soil warm so much faster than outside. So yes, there will be spring vegetables on Saturday. Here’s what I plan to harvest: salad mix, baby arugula, spinach, red radishes, French breakfast radishes, baby bok choy, and possibly some salad turnips and young kale. Start your morning with a relaxing stroll through the Market. We’re looking forward to seeing you!
Sweet Earth Garden and Vintage China
Sweet Earth Gardens will be at the market on May 5th with Spring flowers.  Looks like a beautiful day-will be good to be back at the market.
