Memorial Day Weekend
Something of perfection was captured at market this past Saturday. It was the combination of warm May sunshine, a light kiss of wind and a bustling market full of happy shoppers with totes of asparagus, bouquets of flowers and more.
The tops of Stella's Bakery baguettes (pictured) poked out from those totes, ready to be smothered in honey comb from Bonde Bee for the perfect treat. Shoppers were seen making multiple trips to grab up their seedlings from West Star Farm, eager to get planting in the nice weather.
These are the signs of the rising star that is each market season, signaling all the good things to come as we get closer to the summer season. For many of us, we let Memorial Day weekend serve as the unofficial kickoff to summer. The cookouts and picnics made that much more special with a menu featuring the best from the farmers' market.
Before we send ourselves careening off on summer's adventures, May has decided to lash us with a few cold rainy days, hopefully that last kiss from a winter left long behind. On days like this, the kitchen gives us comfort in the warm and soothing meal that one could nestle up on the couch with until the sun returns. Landmark Creamery has you covered on occasions like these with their Mac & Cheese blend (pictured) for that home cooked meal that takes you back.
While we're very excited for the start of the summer, we're even more happy to announce the return of the Double Dollars program starting in June. Our FoodShare shoppers will be able to get up to $25 matched at market each week! This great program, facilitated by the Community Action Coalition of South Central Wisconsin, has been such a boon to area markets like ours over the last 7 years, helping shoppers stretch their dollars even further and take home more of that market goodness.
So much to look forward to this time of year!
See you at market!
