Midtown Farmers Market: Week 5—The Lost (Asparagus) Week

There’s been a lot of talk about asparagus and the lack thereof on our part this spring. With Monday marking the first day of summer, we’re officially past the peak season.

Midtown Farmers Market: Week 7—Bring It On

During a busy but fun weekend I didn’t have time to blog, but I did have time to get  to the Midtown Farmers’ Market: Obviously, this picture was taken at home rather than at the market, but my purchasing was comprehensive enough that I feel it’s a fair representation of what was to be had […]

Midtown Farmers’ Market: Week 7—Summer’s Here

Amazing what two weeks will do. I missed the last two weeks of the Midtown Farmers’ Market while on a trip home (and enjoying the very fine Midland Farmers’ Market). You might recall that my last trip, while exciting because of the first appearance of asparagus, was a bit disappointing since that was the only […]
