    OUR FIRST WEDNESDAY EVENING!



    Tomorrow is the first market Wednesday! And our first evening market in 10 years I'm told. Kabobs will be there! (And again in two weeks).

    Here's what we've got lined up:
    Eagle Produce Farm (AM):
    Kale and mustard greens. Greenhouse tomatoes, squash, zucchini and possibly cucumbers. And tomato plants and more!

    Lee's Fresh Flowers & Vegetables (AM):
    Irises, tulips, other fillers. Swiss chards, spring onion, radishes, green garlic

    Third Creek Cottage Garden (NEW VENDOR, PM):
    Pork, Eggs, Homemade soaps (made with honey from our honeybees), and possible lettuce, greens and other produce.

    Two Pigs Farm (PM):
    Pastured Eggs, Pork and Poultry. A slight change of vegetables! (Their CSA shares get priority while things get going!)

    Miller Produce (AM & PM):
    Expect plenty of strawberries, lettuce, onions and plants. Expect more from them on Saturday...

    How Sweet it Is (AM & PM):
    Morning muffins, pound cake, coffee cake, pumpkin bread and more!

    SandyCreek Farm (NEW VENDOR, PM):
    Fresh Mushrooms, Jellies, Preserves, Chocolate Sauce, Bees wax & Plants.
    Of all the vendors, they're coming the furthest so they asked me to mention they may hold off if the forecast gets worse...

    Fundraiser:
    If you've made it to the bottom this email, I'd wager you're probably a pretty big local food supporter! I'd like to invite you to Riot in the Pasture on May 17th, benefitting both the Farmers' Market and Bread Riot, our partner nonprofit. We're printing tickets tomorrow so hopefully you'll be able to stop in the evening to buy however many you need...

    Here's a link with info about the dueling pigs, Salty Caper pizza, local beer and more (more info to come!):

    Thanks so much for supporting small local farms.

    Sincerely,

    Eric
    Manager, salisburyfarmersmarket.com
    Executive Director, breadriot.org
