Cooking demonstration and even more heirloom vegetables! Today at the Lloyd Farmers Market.


Chef Jane Hashimawari is back this week to show us how to make a simple chimichurri sauce great for dressing fresh salad.  Come try a sample for 12:15p – 1:30p.  THINK Unique is also back this week.  She won’t have any plants but her booth will be filled with heirloom tomatoes, eggplants and hot peppers. In fact, the whole market is full of bright peak summer produce. Come early. You don’t want to miss this bounty! And while you’re here, be sure to stop by Naked Acres and try their ground cherries. They are sweet and delicious and among my favorite summer treats.
