Farmer’s Market Saturday Preview

Last Chance Bluegrass Band is in the house this Saturday so there will be lively tunes wafting from the gazebo. Lots of great thing happening at the market.
Ms. Betty is back with Maidenhair fern and her signature Staghorn Fern and the market is again alive with bright, happy verge from all quarters. Trudy says she’ll have plenty of japanese maples this week. Did you know that she is very well known throughout the South for the quality of her japanese Maples? She’ll also have some native azaleas with which to grace your garden. Dennis had some amazingly gorgeous magnolias in bloom this past week and the roses – oh my!
I stopped by Mauthe’s for some cream and found Garlic & Herb and Cajun soft cheeses and Farmhouse Cheddar. I also noticed a cinnamon sugar cheese spread! Can you imagine that, liberally spread, on the perfect slice of toast? Now, don’t you worry, our bakers have fantastic bread just for this purpose. Windfield Farms’ French Batard comes to mind, as does Bear Creek Road’s Sourdough. Happy Flour has introduced an oatmeal honey white bread – a healthier alternative to traditional white bread. So make sure you set your alarm for incredible and we’ll see you at the market.
Lots of Love, Charlene LeJeune, Abundant Life Kitchen
