April 21st Market News

 

Dear Shoppers,

Tomorrow promises to be warmer than our first foray outdoors.


La Petite Occasion  celebrates the sun's appearance with their new Soleil assortment which includes vanilla, salted dark chocolate, bacon bourbon maple and coconut raspberry caramels. A perfect Mother's Day gift (for the early planners)

We will also have a guest appearance from Taiim, the eatery on Main Street. They are bringing their sumptuous samosas.

With the weather warming up, more greens are sprouting. Earth Nurture Farms, an urban farm in Bergen Countyis bringing a variety of micro greens, including radish, sunflower, and pea sprouts. Deep Roots Farm has collards, lettuce, kohlrabi. cabbage, and parsley coming in and Simon from Sun Sprout has full grown rainbow chard among other greens.

Don't forget to hold onto the ribs and other trimming from your greens, along with other food scraps. We collect for compost at every market.  If you didn't pick up your composting kit last time, we will have more for sale tomorrow-$20 for a counter top pail and a garbage bin. 

Tomorrow is gleaning, where we ask market shoppers to buy an extra bunch of carrots or bag of greens for the Hastings Food Pantry. Look for the basket by the market tent to drop off your purchases.

See you at the market!

P.S.  We cherish our relationship with the Hastings Library and the fact that you can pick up a book and your bok choy on the same trip. At the same time, we kindly remind you that the Library is not a place to park your children while you shop. Library rules state that children under the age of 10 are not to be left unattended.
