Ever feel like you’re in the twilight zone in your own back yard? That’s what happened to hundreds of people last Saturday, when they walked into the market and strolled past a fractal. A fractal!

This Saturday (April 19) marks prime season at the farmers’ market! That means longer hours (8AM-noon), more vendors, and cartloads of local produce. The market’s bakers, growers, herders, and picklers are promising big things for the kickoff. Upper Crust Bakery is bringing hot cross buns for the Easter holiday and farmers will be arriving with […]

What the heck is that?” I love hearing those words while walking around the market on Saturdays. Half the time, I don’t know the answer. But that’s the fun of farmers’ markets – getting to try new local foods that aren’t available at the grocery store. This Saturday, ramps will be turning some heads. With […]
