Just got this email from the Neighborhood Farmer’s Market Alliance:
This Sunday at the Broadway Farmers Market:
Fresh, sweet PEAS: sugar snap and shelling peas, crunchy and delicious as a snack, in salads, or stir-fried with other market veggies: asparagus, leeks, garlic, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots… Also look for big heads of lettuce and fresh bunches of braising greens…
We’re also lucky to have a good supply of LOCALLY-grown hothouse tomatoes at the market, from Kittitas Valley Farm.
Two things that give veggies their optimal flavor and nutritional content are: soil quality and freshness! There’s nothing much fresher than produce brought straight from our local farms, where it was cultivated in good, healthy soil…
Live music this week from Fraser Havens, great pedal steel player.
The Broadway Farmers Market takes place every Sunday, 11 am – 3 pm, from May 11 through Nov. 23, in the lot behind the Bank of American at Broadway & E. Thomas. The market is operated by the Neighborhood Farmers Market Alliance, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting and strengthening Washington’s small family farms.
