After this harsh winter, I couldn't be happier to say that theSaturdaymarketseason opens in just over 2 weeks! Here are a few early reports from ourfarmersin the fields and producers in the kitchen:

Dangling Carrot: "The onions...crying, waiting, hoping to get in the field."
Rock Dove: "Thrilled to see our radishes sprouting!"
Bluebird Meadows: "Spring thaw = mending fences."
 
 
 
 
 
Wishwell Farms: Jason has made wonderfully informative videos of his greenhouse tomato-growing techniques. Catch up with the progress of this season's crophere.  
Meadow Rise Farm: "I'm hoping that I can get SOMETHING in soon. Never had such a late year for starting the outside planting, but it's just too too too wet."
 
Patisserie Lallier: "Last summer I planted rhubarb, and this summer I'll be able to harvest it to use in our strawberry-rhubarb tarts. The plants are coming up nicely, and I'm hoping that the extra strawberry plants I added last year will allow enough fruitfor these tarts as well. It has been difficult finding local organic or pesticide free fruit, so I decided to add more items to my pesticide-free home garden to use in my baking."
 
Marketwise, we're looking forward to a wonderful season. 2014 marks the 12th year of theClintonvilleFarmers'Market, and  we'll be celebrating with tastings and demos by local chefs, a line up of farm tours, a visit fromThe Cooking Caravan, and of course, all of the beautiful, just-picked produce that make Saturdaymornings worth getting up for.  

Speaking of farm tours, don't forget about the one coming up thisSaturday, April 12thatFresh Harvest Farmfrom2-4pm. Learn how Doug and Jeni combine elements of hydroponics and aquaculture to grow varieties of lettuces and greens year-round. RSVPhere.

We can't wait to see you all!

Happy Spring,
Michelle
