The Pasturage has some new goodies in, including Chorizo, so be sure to check out their list! Lots of great meats also available from Pine Row, Scholls & Liberty Farms as well – no reason not to have excellent soups, stews and/or roasts this week! Add some of Scholl’s potatoes to the pot, and here’s a secret tip: Forest Finds Wild Salt and a dropper or two of their Fire Cider in a cup of hot soup – whew!
At this point it’s looking like another sunny, but cold market day, so please dress warm, or stay in your car and pull up behind vendors you have orders with. And PLEASE get your preorders in today!
