March 2nd Market News
We're not letting a little snow keep us from bringing you the best in local produce and artisanal food products! The market will be open from 9am-1pm with our full roster of farms and food artisans. Please come out and show your support!
When beloved vendor Tierra Farms shifted their business model away from markets to wholesale accounts, shoppers lamented the loss of nuts and dried fruit at the market. We are thrilled to finally have found another small, family-operated company that focuses on bringing organic nut and dried fruits to markets. Kariba Farms is joining us a guest vendor tomorrow, brining with them bags of pistachios, almonds, peanuts, dried mango, nut & fruit mixes, and seeds. We hope you'll give them a warm Hastings welcome!
You can't eat the spinach right out of the supermarket bag, but you definitely can munch on Sun Sprout's leaves. As an organic producer who brings to market what he feeds his family, you can trust that Simon's greens are fresh enough to chew right out of the ground! And tasty enough to enjoy raw. Try making a winter salad with almonds and dried cranberries from Kariba.
Need an incentive to come out in the snow? Lasagna Preziosa's latest culinary creation is the perfect reward for venturing out. He is unveiling his latest line of Italian street food-panzerotti. It's a fried dough turnover stuffed with savory fillings, often described as a smaller, fried calzone. He's starting with two varieties– broccoli di rape, sweet sausage and smoked mozzarella and tomato sauce, mozzarella, Parmesan cheese and basil. More flavors to come!
See you at the market!
