Hi, friends and happy Tuesday! What a lovely day it is today and it looks like we will be blessed with sunshine tomorrow, which is great since we will be equally blessed with great food and great music. Stop by and enjoy a delicious pulled pork sammy with green beans and cole slaw. Or perhaps you’d prefer a crisp salad of lemongrass chicken, crunchy vegetables, and noodles. Bring home one of Nanette’s chicken salad wraps (by lunchtime tomorrow you’ll be glad you did.) Frankie has old fashioned banana pudding this week and will have her decadent Chocolate Lasagna on Saturday. Mr. Houston has lots of great veggies and fresh yard eggs. Natalie will have fresh strawberries. No need to add anything else; just snip off the tops and enjoy!
Oh what a day this Saturday will be! Keith and Nealy Frentz and the Lola Deux Food Truck will be parked on Columbia Street and before you know it there will be a long line for those amazing fries. Chris Talley will serenade us from the gazebo so grab your coffee and enjoy the morning with us.
Seek out the lovely ladies from the Master Gardeners’ Club who will be with us every 3rd weekend of the month to answer your gardening questions. These “vege-cators” have lots of great information for the novice and seasoned gardener alike. Then make a beeline over to Alton and Sandra’s tables to get those starter plants.
Norma Jean has a delicious assortment of quiches each Saturday which usually includes the ever-popular Artichoke & Valbreso Cheese quiche. See what’s on “tap” at Earth Milk. With choices like Oat, Almond, Coconut, Hemp Seed, and Cinnamon Oat, Kristen offers a delicious alternative to dairy. Then, turn around and check out the selection of gourmet dog food from Tiger Bait.
Since you’re over that way, you should check out the new Three Cheese and Spinach Polenta Tart from Bear Creek Road. Farmhouse Dairy may have some fresh goat cheeses which when delicately draped in Robin’s Blackberry Cabernet pepper jelly make a delightful snack. A slice of Mauthe’s cheddar and a dollop of Robin’s Apple Bacon pepper jelly seated regally atop one of Lena’s toasted bread rounds is a treat not to be missed.
Lots of great food, veggies, and just all around fun…the Covington Farmers’ Market has it all. Our plans include lots of sunshine and blue skies; make sure your plans include joining us.
Lots of love,
Abundant Life Kitchen
