Spring is Blooming at the Lloyd Farmers Market

The sun keeps poking through the clouds to say hello, pink ornamental cherry blossoms are lining the walkway, and delicious spring eats are in abundance today. We have SNAP-match sponsor Getaround here this week, signing up new drivers and cars for their car-sharing application. Their sponsorship allows 25 people to increase their access to spending at the farmers market.

Our newest vendor, Dos Hermanos Bakery, has Hot Cross Buns made with raisins and orange peel and an icing cross on top. Pick up a box for Easter, or just because they are a delicious treat.

It’s stinging nettle season, and Nature’s Wild Harvest has them avilable fresh for making pesto, soups, and much more. They also offer dried nettle leaves, great for making batches of tea all through allergy season. These fierce to the touch plants carpet PNW forest floors in the spring, and are known for their abundance and numerous medicinal and culinary applications.

With crisp bok chois, carrots, and purple sprouting broccoli there’s a rainbow of eating at Greenville Farms. Also on offering at Udan Farm are tender spring greens, succulent scallions, and bright radishes. See below for more photos and a full list of vendors at market today.
