Vendors Attending Saturday January 28th:
The Woven Farm of Whitehall
New microgreen on the market table this week!
I am currently trialing fenugreek microgreens as a potential addition to the microgreen menu in 2023. Saturday will be their debut on the market table, and I am anticipating them to be a popular item!
The seeds smell just like maple syrup. Seeding these trays had me dreaming up a pancake brunch
While they boast a sweet scent, these greens are actually quite zippy in flavor. They are a versatile green packed with nutrition that can be used in an array of dishes – I recommend pairing them with a curry based dish.
Stop on down to @sweetwaterlocal this Saturday to give them a try
I expect to have the following Microgreens for walk up sales Saturday.
See ya Saturday!!
