Well last week was a blast! The Food Truck Festival was such a success. So much so, they kinda ran out of food a bit early! Thank you to all shoppers who came out to try the tasty treats and to the extra volunteers who made the day a success. And apologies to those who showed up later and the selection was limited.
In farmer news, did you know there is a new vendor at the market with blueberries and flowers? Now you do. Also, the corn is simply amazing right now; another new farmer is selling locally grown harvested and created organic skin care products (From the Meadow); and check out the picture of the $10 mixed fruit basket. A whole lot of reasons to go to the market this week!
This week, T.O. Ceviche Bar will offer a Ceviche Demo this week from 5:00pm to 7:00pm. Their Creative Food Directors Alvaro Valencia and Sean Lacey will explain how to prepare ceviche using fish, lime juice, ginger, limo hot pepper, herbs and seasonal greens and fruits. They’ll be coming with samples! Bring your adventurous appetite for ceviche, gluten-free sweet potato and quinoa burgers (served on roti) and fish anticuchos (Peruvian kebab) at promotional prices.
If you’re looking for a fire extinguisher or carbon monoxide detector, stop by the community booth to learn more about fire prevention and safety and enter the draw. There will be stuff for the kids too!
Finally, bring your adventurous little ones for the 4:30pm craft with Mrs. Darling. This week she’ll be running some water gun painting!
