Pick of the Week:
Cherry tomatoes

We love using cherry tomatoes in pasta dishes and salads. They’re high in fiber and low in calories and carbohydrates. They also provide antioxidants to your diet! Find cherry tomatoes at any of our four markets this time of year.

James Farm

Rice is at the Saturday market! Help us welcome our newest vendor, James Farm, by trying their rice product. They mill the rice but leave the nutritious part of the grain. So, it looks and cooks like white rice, but with greater nutritional content!It will make a perfect base for so many of your recipe creations.

Tuesday’s Green Plate Special:
Casa Borrega

Plan for tacos and tostadas this Tuesday for lunch! Casa Borrega is back at it as the Green Plate Special this week. Taste their creations at the Tuesday market from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
