New mural, fall crops, and more!

Fresh & Local

Thanks to everyone who came out to our Birthday celebration Saturday! For the entirety of our 19 years, our Saturday market has been enlivened and made beautiful with the stunning mural on the wall of the Reily Company garage. In every photo, and in every memory of market, it is standing proud. As many of you may have noticed, the mural recently got a face life and is more bright and beautiful. We will be honoring this mural, and the generous support of the Reily Company, at a ribbon cutting ceremony Saturday, October 4 morning. Mark your calendars to join us next week at 10am as we thank Mr. Reily for this beautiful contribution to our market and city. We will have kids activities as well. We can’t wait to see you!

Pick of the Week: Greens!

Cooler mornings and evenings mean greens are slowly coming back into market. This past week we had a run on kale, so we know you are as excited as we are! Grab a bunch this week and add them to eggs, soups, salads, sandwiches, or the old fashioned way, in a big ole’ pot with pork. These colorful goodies are healthy and as local as it gets.

Tuesday’s Green Plate Special

We continue to be in awe of Seed’s innovative use of veggies on their Green Plate Special menu. The raw veggie spaghetti was delicious, and we are excited to see what they bring this Tuesday!

Jim Core's Kale Jambalaya is another one of our favorite ways to eat this sturdy green, which is an excellent source of vitamins K, A and C. Make up a pot for this week’s Saints game and invite some friends over for a feast!
