Pick of the Week:
Knife Sharpening is Back!

Our dear knife sharpener Doyle Hanson has been away from market for the past month and a half as many of you may know. Well he’s finally back now and we’re so glad! You can find Doyle at every Tuesday market and every other Saturday market. He was just at market this past Saturday so plan to catch him not this Saturday, but the next. Whether it’s knives, scissors, or some other blade you need sharpened, Doyle’s one of the best in the biz and can take care of most any sharpening job, big or small. So pick up those dull kitchen tools and bring them with you to market to see the knife doctor, Doyle Hanson!

Tuesday’s Green Plate Special

L’enfant Terrible’s market fresh quesadillas were delicious last week! If you were around last week you may have seen Chef Matthew walking back and forth from the tent picking up more fresh produce as the day went on. That’s because if it’s not fresh, it’s not going on a plate according to the L’enfant philosophy. So if you’re into procuring a real ‘market-fresh’ lunch tomorrow be sure to stop by market and pick up a plate for yourself!
