We were closed last Tuesday for Mardi Gras, but we're happy to be back Uptown this week with some special treats. Cajun Grain will be at the market with their aromatic brown jasmine rice, rice grits and rice flour. Mississippi Natural Products will be there with shiitake mushrooms. And for dessert, Francis Chauvin will be back with her freshly baked pies.

As we move towards Spring, more and more produce is available at our Thursday market. Vintage Garden has expanded their produce selection with everything from luscious greens like dinosaur kale to fresh turmeric and ginger. We've also spotted edible flowers, lettuces and fennel on Bartlett Farm's table, multiple varieties of strawberries from Johndale Farm, late season citrus varieties from A & K Citrus, and yellow, red and cherry tomatoes from Barry Barrileaux.

We're celebrating the start of Spring by planting seedlings for Marketeers to take home this Saturday. Come ready to get your hands just a little dirty. If your child (under age 14) is not already a member of our free Marketeers Club, pick up a registration form at the Welcome Tent of any of our three weekly markets, or download one here.

Jim Core's Kale Jambalaya is one of our favorite ways to eat this sturdy green, which is an excellent source of vitamins K, A and C. Stop by for a bunch this Tuesday or Saturday.
